Film Review: The Devil Below (1inMM Productions, 2021) by Devin J. Meaney

Film: The Devil Below
With Alicia Sanz, Adan Canto and Will Patton
Written by Eric Scherbarth and Stefan Jaworski
Directed by Bradley Parker
Distributed by 1inMM Productions
Release date: March 5, 2021
Recently I had the chance to check out “The Devil Below” on Tubi. It was released in 2021—and I didn’t know what to expect—but after watching I can honestly say this was one of the best horror movies I have watched in a good while.
Something worth mentioning is that I think this movie would make for a good horror style video game in the same vein as Resident Evil. At times the vibes reminded me of “The Suffering” series for the PS2. Nearing the end I was reminded of “The Mother Boss” from “Turok 2: Seeds of Evil”—so more than once the “gamey” feels showed their face. This might not mean anything to anyone other than a classic gaming fanatic—but I guess it is worth throwing it out there!
The creature effects were great and the films ambience was spot on. Just like one of my favorite films “Pumpkinhead” this movie had the ability to not show much of what is going on leaving everything purely to shadows and the imagination!
I would suggest this one for a spooky night on the couch with some friends—so get your popcorn seasoned and your discount cola chilled! This was a sure-fire treat and a great example of how horror/monster flicks should be! -Devin J. Meaney
