The Devil Needs to Get Laid

Heed my advice, ladies. Satan’s love is hot and fierce. If someone offers you $500 to let Beelzebub use your body as a vessel, I suggest you say no. It’s a raw deal.

A young woman sells her soul for $500 then commits suicide. Years later, another woman tries to sell the house where it happened. Then she dies and her sister ends up being the recipient of Satan’s seed. The end.

The first couple of minutes of At The Devil’s Door were promising. Then it started jumping around with confusing flashbacks and took almost an hour to  settle on a main character. By this point, I had given up. Since there were three characters that shared the spotlight, neither one had enough time to truly engage the audience in their story. It also fumbled with its own mythology since the first woman had to accept Satan for things to work, but then the other two could just be used and abused with no consent.

If you’re in the mood for a movie about Satan making the beast with two backs with unsuspecting women, there are many worthwhile options that do it better. Skip over At The Devil’s Door and check out The Omen (1976) or Prince of Darkness. Christ, even Little Nicky would be a better option. Not recommended.

Availability: Netflix US, Netflix Canada
