If you’re looking for a spooky thriller to watch, Netflix’s “The Devil All The Time” is the perfect movie for you. It’s based on the book written by Donald Ray Pollock, which is about a young man trying to overcome adversities set in his small town. There are serial killers on the run while a preacher takes advantage of his role in church.
In the movie, you’ll recognize well known actors such as Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Bill Skarsgård, and many more. It takes place right when World War II ends and begins with how the main character’s parents meet. I don’t want to expose any spoilers so you’ll get a chance to watch it, but just be prepared for some creepy and confusing scenes.
As I was watching the movie, I really enjoyed seeing Tom Holland take on a different role rather than being a superhero. Throughout each scene, they were mostly dark, gloomy, and suspenseful scenes that captured the sense of “watching your back” knowing how mysterious the town was. There are twists and turns that keep you on your feet. Although it is 2 hours long, it’s the type of movie you want to see until the end.
The film does contain scenes that could be disturbing to some people, but overall it’s a great film to watch. The movie touches on topics of faith, abuse of religion, family, and corruption. Personally I love watching movies that I get to come up with my own conclusions or stick the pieces together, and “The Devil All The Time” executes that. However, I’m still confused on some aspects of the film, but maybe that’s why there’s a book to read about it.
So if you’re looking for the next spooky movie to binge watch on Netflix, I recommend “The Devil All The Time.”
