At the Devil's Door gradually and somewhat slowly pulls you into its dark effects driven horror playing realism vs. the fantastic in a slow churn powerplay to an impressive end. While it it isn't one of my favorite pictures of the year, it certainly carries its weight and feels horrific. This is not a Jerry springer psycho thriller with lots of cerebral reveals. Simply in put, the house has a secret. We are there to discover it. We will be introduced to some creepy, Asian horror concepts throughout the way, and by the end I think you can feel disturbed slightly more than pleasantly entertained. Nothing too gory or gratuitous. Just enough of a mess to let you think about how you would have responded to cleaning it up.
You can catch At the Devil's Door in a limited theatrical run starting September 12th and is currently on VOD and other digital mediums.
