Here Comes the Devil


The atmospheric fright flick Here Comes the Devil combines modern indie filmmaking and storytelling with an unsettling hint of retro, ’70s-styled psychological horror that just might not be strictly psychological. A couple’s preteen son and daughter inexplicably reappear after being lost overnight on a desolate, cave-riddled mountainside. Becoming withdrawn and beginning to exhibit strange behavior, their parents quickly assume something sinister happened to them while missing and alone. But after hearing an ominous local legend, the concerned mother and father begin to suspect that their children may have fallen prey to something inhuman – and that this dark, unstoppable evil has now returned home with them. Torn between rational explanation and supernatural fear, the increasingly panicked couple are forced to confront something that is too strange to believe … and far too dangerous to ignore.
