I think I can safely give some insight into what the movie's about without giving away anything because the 1st few minutes of the movie gives away everything that's really going on with Tyler and his "niece" Kayla. There's something very off about them from the first few minutes and it lets you know that from the get go, as well as throughout the whole movie. There's no surprises with anything in this movie which is a big part of what ruins it.
So, the Winters family is looking for a home to rent. They find a place and will be renting the top floor. Almost immediately, the father becomes very sick and pretty much stays that way through the entire film. So we're left with Mom and their son Calvin living upstairs, with the downstairs ppl living there.. Tyler and Kayla.
Things just get weird with good ol' Uncle Tyler and his niece Kayla, but there's nothing puzzling about it because everytime they show the 2, they also show you exactly who they are, what their intentions are, what they want, why they're doing what they're doing, etc etc.. There's no surprises or twists to it because everything is given away from the beginning. I don't mean it's predicatable.. I mean they literally give everything away themselves so you don't even get a chance at guessing what could be happening.Read more ›
As a result, the Devil's Mercy is quite predictable starting from 30 minutes in, all the way to the conclusion. There's nothing even remotely unpredictable about the entire film, in fact. The storyline is about soul stealing. You can very easily put the pieces together and figure out what's going to happen by the ending. The only real question is *how* is it going to happen.
I felt some of the storyline segments were really exaggerated too. Was there really any need to have the father lingering around the house all day and night holding his stomach because of a "virus?" Absolutely not. It was total overkill if you ask me.
The only really interesting character was his wife (or girlfriend- I forget if they were actually married or not). At least she delivered with a strong acting performance and felt believable in her desire and determination in finding the answers to the "strange" events taking place. The little boys only solid acting moment came at the very end, and the surprise ending is alright.
Notice I put the word "strange" in quotation marks? It's because the storyline failed to actually deliver with the strange events.Read more ›
