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.

All Critics (126) | Top Critics (23)

We never really get to know any of these characters aside from their villainy and/or victimhood. They're paper fish in a cardboard barrel.

Best to bury this Devil in an unmarked grave.

September 17, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Mr. Campos and his superb cast confer such authority on the whole thing that there's no choice but to follow the film's three time-hopping, befuddlingly intertwined stories

September 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The casting alone should spur interest in The Devil All the Time, but can't make the movie feel like less of a slog.

Top Critic

Watching it is like spending two hours and change on a hard church pew, with nothing to show but a few splinters. Deliver us from evil-please.

Holland, who has been so refreshing as Spider-Man, gets his first opportunity to prove he can act without the help of $150 million of webs and whistles. He can.
