A surprise hit stateside when it displaced Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol from the top of the box office, The Devil Inside defied a near-universal critical mauling to find an audience. Released last week in U.K. theatres, one can only hope that British audiences are a little more discerning.
In the trailer for The Devil Inside the film rather proudly states that the Vatican did not give its endorsement. Well, neither did they endorse 21 Jump Street, but you don’t see them banging on about it do you? Anyway, perhaps they just weren’t fans of the movie. Big cinephile, The Pope, didn’t you know? Well, you will after reading his scathing critques of these other films the Vatican doesn’t want you to see.
Well, they have to learn about demoniacally possessed middle aged women some time.
