AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Devil All the Time's descent into darkness can be harrowing to the point of punishment, but it's offset by strong work from a stellar cast.

Movie Info

In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters -- an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) -- converge around young Arvin Russell (Tom Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos' THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted.

Critic Reviews for The Devil All the Time

All Critics (195) | Top Critics (29)

Fiendishly gripping...

November 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Devil All the Time has the pretensions of a mythopoetic story that's chipping away at a community's dark underbelly. But here the misery is as belly-up and eager to be noticed as a house cat or a dead fish.

October 23, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

There are instances of heart and significance scattered throughout the film, but it too often gives into its wandering nature and stops itself from ever making a lasting impression.

October 5, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

When The Devil All the Time does plunge into the moral abyss, it's intoxicating -- if only it did it more often.

September 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5

Engrossing but conventional - a well-told story whose evocative setting and vivid performances combine to produce a grim and lurid tableau.

September 22, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

To watch it is to suffer right along with its miserable characters, desperate for some ray of hope or sunshine to peek through the heavy portents of death.

September 21, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
