Quick Review: The Devil Inside (2012)
Before we get into our end of the year awards lists, let's take a few minutes to at least offer a paragraph or two on some of the movies that we never got around to writing about, and that deserve to have a few words spoken about them.

This was the first Horror flick that we saw in 2012, and it really kicked off the year in shitty fashion for us. Luckily, we've seen way better (and way worse, actually) Horror movies since then, but damn this one still makes us shudder when it comes to mind.

Not only is it hard to find a good Found Footage flick these days, but finding a good Exorcism movie has been all but impossible since about 1973. What about a good Found Footage/Exorcism flick, you say? Well, that's like finding a male Justin Bieber fan that isn't gay; it doesn't happen very often.

"Are you a Belieber?!?"
Not only is this movie filled with long, drab scenes of discussion, some horrible shaky cam, truly unlikable characters, truly bad dialogue, and a bunch of "I think that's supposed to be scary" scenes, but it also boasts one of the lamest endings to a movie we've seen all year. Really, the ending was just plain shit.

The crazy part of it all? This shitty movie cost about $1 million to make, and made about $100 million worldwide. Yeah. And you wonder why cheap, shitty Found Footage flicks became all the rage this year...

Don't look at us like that, lady, you know it sucked.
I am clearly on a different plane of existence than most people when it comes to pop culture, because it makes ZERO sense to me how a movie this bad made so much damn money. Then again I can't understand how Tyler Perry has a career either, and people just loooove him, but I digress...

This is pretty much how we feel trying to figure Pop Culture out.
The Devil Inside is not the worst horror movie of 2012, but it is most assuredly one of them. Top 10, at least. Maybe even top 5. We'll figure it out here in a few days.


She has a sexy devil inside of her.
