I should mention that a number of people seem disappointed/confused by the ending.
Robert Beveridge
I seriously mean it- NO suspense, NO atmosphere, and nothing remotely interesting about any of it.

I'll warn you ahead of time. If you are expecting this to be anything other than a cheesy movie, you'll be incredibly disappointed. This is pure cheese, from the "shot in broad daylight" outside lighting to the "mysteriously well lit abandoned building" effects.

The movie follows several attractive college students who decide to spend the weekend at an abandoned building that had a sinister past. As the night wears on, people begin to die one by one as evil stalks their every move. But what exactly is going on? Can any of them survive the night or are they all doomed?

This movie wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. The ending is easily the best part of the movie & I'm honestly tempted to give it 3 stars just because of that. It's just that the rest of the movie dragged on for so long that the movie felt like it was at least an hour longer than it actually was. The movie tries too hard to be the creepy psychological horror film & it kind of killed off some of the fun of the movie- especially the abandoned building part. There just felt like there could have been more done with it. The acting is nice enough & they interact well enough. It just wasn't enough to carry the film.

This isn't something that I would recommend buying unless you've seen it & you know that this is something you want to own. It may be worth a watch for the people who like horror movies, but anyone else would be better off skipping this one.

The Devil's Curse is a horrible film. I can't remember the last time I watched a horror flick that had *zero* suspense and atmosphere. I seriously mean it- NO suspense, NO atmosphere, and nothing remotely interesting about any of it.

A group of college kids spend time in an abandoned building. You could seriously let a raccoon with rabies loose in the building and I'm willing to bet that would offer more in the way of actual fear than what this poor excuse of a film provides.

I simply can't recommend it to anyone. You'd have to be the most desperate person in the world to watch it.

I'm talking about someone who's been on a deserted island for over 15 years and once they came back to civilization, they're absolutely dying to see a horror film more than anything else. That's the only person who'd get any kind of enjoyment out of this crap.

Yes, there's a twist at the end of the movie. That doesn't make up for the other 90% of painful boredom I had to experience.

Please skip it.

The movie is your avarage atmospheric spookfest or so you think.. Until the end of the film. The director and writers throw a real nice curve ball at you. I won't tell you what it is just that it actually makes the film worth watching. Don't expect mass gore or monsters, that is not going to happen. This movie is pure mental. Also, watch the special features portion of the DVD, the background about the filming of the movie is just as entertaining. Apparently the set for the film is haunted and the enitre crew experienced the ghosts.

As average horror films go, this is a pretty decent one. Unfortunately, its title and plot summary do it no favors. I thought this was going to be a film about a group of theology students summoning a demon and then trying to survive in the wake of their very bad mistake. In point of fact, that little demon conjuration story serves as the background to the actual storyline, which involves five college students picking the worst possible site for house squatting. Having - quite by accident, mind you - watched two consecutive movies about house squatting, I can say, with some authority, that house squatting is bad, mmkay. If you try it, you're just asking to find yourself locked in and hunted by some evil entity - be it man or demon. Getting back to the title, I think LionsGate made a mistake in changing this film's original name, Credo, to The Devil's Curse once it purchased the American distribution rights. I mean, please, The Devil's Curse? Could you possibly have a cheesier title for a horror film?

The central character in this story is Alice (MyAnna Buring), a most diligent student who is the last person to leave the library on a nightly basis. For some reason, she is friends and roommates with a stereotypical party animal, an insecure would-be suitor (Mark Joseph) who secretly tapes her in her room, and two other girls. Thanks to Jock (Clayton Watson) and his loud partying, the whole lot of them are evicted on an early Saturday morning. Jock finds them a new place to crash for at least the next couple of weeks, though. Unfortunately, it turns out to be a former seminary/dormitory where a group of five students tried to summon the demon Belial some years ago.
