An Average Movie-Goer’s Review
No spoilers! If you would like spoilers – check out the Spoiler post
I love horror movies and if I’m going to watch them anyway, why not write an entertaining/funny review from the POV of an average movie-goer and not a professional critic.
Today we’re looking at the 2021’s Devil’s Island
After inheriting her grandparent’s home on a small island, Samantha discovers they may be something evil trying to scare her away.
Is Devil’s Island Scary?
No, there are a few tense scenes but overall Devil’s Island is not scary nor does it have any gore. You won’t leave Devil’s Island scared of anything unless you recently moved to a new island and don’t lock your doors at night.
Devil’s Island No Spoiler Review:
Devil’s Island is okay but bordering on bad. It could have actually been a lot better but the story isn’t well-told. The acting is good for the most part, although there are definitely a few acting choices where you question the choices. Dialogue is fine and the premise is interesting but how the story plays out for the last half of the film is what ruins the film overall.
The movie leaves you with so many unanswered questions that you’ll feel like you’re watching the first episode of a mini-series and if that were the case, then this wouldn’t be all that bad. The good news is that the film is pretty short, it’s just 75 minutes but I also feel that if the movie was just 15 minutes longer it could have explained some of what the hell was going on. It’s a shame because the movie does do a good job of giving you answers to other questions by letting you figure them out instead of force-feeding them.
Overall I don’t recommend watching Devil’s Island unless you’re really bored and won’t be paying too much attention. I say this because the movie is okay but if you’re looking for a tightly told story with closure, this ain’t it.
