The gratuitous sex and violence makes it just about bearable., 4 September 2015
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England

Married couple Felix (Francisco Barreiro) and Sol (Laura Caro) are on a road trip with their children, teenager Sara (Michele Garcia) and younger brother Adolfo (Alan Martinez), when they decide to pull over at a truck stop for a break; while the kids go off to explore a nearby hill, the father explores his wife's nether regions. Everyone's happy! But when the kids fail to return, the worried couple call the police, checking themselves into a local hotel while they wait for news. Luckily, the kids are found the next morning, but although they seem unharmed, there is something about their behaviour that doesn't seem right…

Heres Comes The Devil kicks off with two buck naked lesbians grinding their honey-pots together in a intense, sweaty embrace—a scene that has absolutely zero bearing on the plot, making it the epitome of gratuitousness. Having firmly ticked the sex box, the film quickly moves on to some equally gratuitous violence, with one of the aforementioned young women answering a knock on the door only to be met by several swift punches to the fizzog from a machete wielding maniac who, having rendered his victim unconscious, proceeds to chop off her fingers. The second lesbian fights off the attacker, who flees the scene. Neither lesbian is seen of or mentioned again.

This sensationalist approach continues throughout the film, with frequent sex and nudity for no good reason, and one grisly moment that is even more brutal than the face-thumping/finger-lopping; it's a good job too, as far as I'm concerned, because without all the bare flesh and nastiness I would have struggled to stay awake, such is the gloomy atmosphere and leaden pacing of this sombre supernatural horror from Mexican director Adrián García Bogliano (some have likened the film to the haunting classic Picnic at Hanging Rock, which I have yet to see, and probably won't for some time now thanks to the comparisons).

Bogliano touches upon several interesting themes, including sexual abuse, incest, and revenge, but in the end it all amounts to little more than a trite supernatural thriller told in a manner that is neither fresh nor interesting, with a final revelation that is as old as the hill that features so prominently.
