If you like really bad movies, you'll probably find this watchable. It's by far not the worst film I've seen, but it's certainly not a good one either.
At first Destiny is kind of sweet and friendly, coming across to Lisa more like a pal than the devil, which makes the early scenes feel like a horror version of Bedazzled, which actually would have been a much more interesting direction for the film to take than the one it does--Destiny pretty quickly reveals herself to be pretty uninteresting and predictably sadistic, completely losing any pretense of the friendliness that initially made the character compelling and seductive.
While Destiny can't do anything on behalf of Lisa without her permission (at least at first--the movie wavers on that point eventually) she seems to have no limits on doing things to other people without their consent--including eviscerating them with sharp weapons, manipulating them into fatal accidents or forcing them to have humiliating sex completely against their will. How can the devil directly do this stuff to people she made no deal with if she needs Lisa's consent to proceed with the campaign of revenge on her behalf? This seems pretty illogical and Devils Domain would have been a better movie if it had given this contradiction a little bit of thought.
The fact that Lisa has no opportunity to choose her own methods of revenge against her enemies is a pretty big miscalculation and it also makes very little sense. She literally has no control whatsoever over anything that Destiny does, even when she completely disagrees with it or another form of revenge would be more believable and satisfying for Lisa. Since she is making a deal with the devil shouldn't Lisa actually get to enjoy what she is getting in return? The form of revenge that Destiny takes against a former best friend of Lisa's that the girl is deeply in love with feels particularly off and likely to make Lisa back out of her deal, even though Lisa is warned there will be dire consequences if she does.
Devil's Domain doesn't get everything completely wrong. Madi Vodane makes for a likable and sympathetic enough heroine--you do feel genuinely bad for her when the humiliating prank is sprung or when she is rejected and shunned by her former best friend after misreading a moment and trying to kiss her. Devil's Domain does a good job of capturing what it feels like to be isolated, bullied and ostracized by mean peers and lousy teachers alike in high school. The film also features some enjoyably splattery gore which would have actually been a lot more fun if the scenes didn't feel largely disconnected from the rest of the film.
I haven't been in high school in a really long time but I was under the impression that young people were more accepting of those with different sexual orientations than they were in my day--but that's definitely not the case here. The high school students in Devil's Domain are almost rabidly homophobic. While the film seems to be sympathetic regarding Lisa's lesbianism a character referred to as the shemale is not nearly as lucky--the film uses him for a sex scene that's supposed to be so humiliating that it literally drives a girl to suicide.
Michael Madsen gets to play a softer character than usual as Lisa's stepdad (I'm not sure if that's his actual legal status) who seems more concerned with Lisa's well-being than her biological mother does. Unfortunately, since this movie is aimed at teens and adult characters aren't thought to be of interest to the target audience he is underutilized and has little impact on the film. I really can't say that I enjoyed Linda Bella's performance much as Destiny aka The Devil. Presumably, somebody involved with the film knows why she was cast but there's nothing onscreen to suggest a good reason. The actors and actresses who play Lisa's classmates seem talented enough but they are stuck playing such one-dimensional characters that none of them makes much of an impression.
Devil's Domain is a sloppy mess that wastes a pretty good set-up but delivers nothing in the way of any real thrills or horror. The script is so illogical and lacking in ideas that after a while it's impossible to care what happens. Even on the rare occasions that the film actually has a good idea (Lisa becoming the biggest reality star in the country overnight or getting the chance to have sex with her unrequited love) the film inevitably botches it, making Devil's Domain more frustrating than entertaining to sit through. The final twist when you finally find out what the devil actually wants from Lisa almost feels like an afterthought. Even if you love horror movies and have very low standards Devil's Domain probably isn't worth watching--other than a few good gore scenes and a solid performance from lead actress Madi Vodane the movie has pretty much nothing to recommend it.
There was an extraordinary amount of killing scenes with dismembered body parts, some were a bit squeamish. Sex wise, there was what could be called a brief rape scene and girl on girl action, although bra and panties is the extend of any nudity. The opening foggy glass shower scene was just a teaser. Satan has a sense of humor..."Being bad has its perks."
