I Trapped The Devil (2019)



Critic Consensus: A slow-burning horror story that takes spine-tingling advantage of its setting and cast, I Trapped the Devil marks an auspicious debut for writer-director Josh Lobo.

Movie Info

Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace and joyful family reunions. But when Matt (AJ Bowen) and his wife Karen (Susan Burke) show up unannounced at the home of his estranged brother Steve (Scott Poythress) to celebrate the holidays, they are instead greeted with a horrifying surprise: trapped in the basement is a man. But not just any man. Steve believes that his hostage is none other than the devil himself. As shock and skepticism turn to fear and paranoia, Matt and Karen find themselves facing a terrifying quandary: is Steve dangerously unhinged? Or could the mysterious stranger really be evil incarnate? Either way, the stage is set for a true Christmas from hell.

Critic Reviews for I Trapped The Devil

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (7)

I Trapped the Devil is an austere shocker worth checking out.

May 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A horror film more interested in sustained dread than easy answers. Scott Poythress gives a memorably unhinged performance.

May 2, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A promising debut despite its flaws.

April 26, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It proves Lobo an able helmer (if one who could probably use a co-writer next time), eking decent atmospherics and good performances within a potentially claustrophobic premise.

April 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, for all the debuting filmmaker's talent for creepy atmospherics, I Trapped the Devil feels draggy and attenuated even with its brief 82-minute running time including credits.

April 25, 2019 | Full Review…

By seesawing between bland normalcy and hellishness, Lobo denies his audience the immersive horror that his film's best images promise.
