” Trapped in the future when humanity is extinct, Penny the astronaut attempts to find a way home alongside her new best friend, a useless wizard named Cola. “
REVIEW: Along Came The Devil
The premise was intriguing, but was problematic because the story was told in an unorganized manner, accompanied by a cookie-cutter script, and possessed too many plot holes to keep interest afloat as you continue to watch an 88 minute filmed that seemed to drag on.
According to the film’s synopsis:
‘After a troubled childhood, Ashley searches for a connection, and unknowingly invites in a demonic force, which leaves her loved ones fighting for her soul.’
Ashley, who is played by Sydney Sweeney, comes from a rough childhood, dealing with the death of her mother Sarah, and her abusive father, she navigates a brutal upbringing with the support of her sister Jordan, who seems to act more as her mother and protector in the film’s opening sequence.
The film picks up 10 years later and Ashley is now a teenager, and has just started living with her Aunt Tanya (Jessica Barth). The film already stumbles getting to this point with no explanation of what the past 10 years were like, or where Ashley was, or even where her sister Jordan was, which shows the plotline and scripts complete ineptitude.
Ashley is back in the town where she grew up and apparently everyone remembers her, including Heather (Madison Lintz) who just pops up out of nowhere and tells Ashley they’re friends. Despite Ashley not remembering her specifically, she goes along with it. Yay script!
Heather is intrigued by the paranormal, and during a party with friends (because, script) she decides to bust out an EVP app. During this ridiculous “seance” Ashley believes she sees her mother, freaks out, and runs off.
When Heather learns about her experience, she is determined to go to Ashley’s house and hold their own EVP session, in an effort to make contact with Ashley’s mother.
When they do this, they apparently invoke a spirit, who is not Ashley’s mother, but is a demon intent of taking the soul of Ashley.
Ashley slowly becomes possessed and at the end of the movie is completely engulfed by the powerful demon. The church pastor (Matt Dallas) and reverend (Bruce Davison) become involved, and things get chaotic.
The movie is do disconnected from itself, is is just a mess to follow, and when you do make the connections, it’s annoying because it still has holes and confusing points.
Despite the cast’s efforts, they cannot save a train wreck of a film that was written horribly, executed terribly, and seemed like a waste of a good premise on such a lazy approach.
