Trivia

This movie is not the first to feature the Tasmanian Devil as central character to a movie. A few years back, in 2006, a film called Cemetery Gates featuring an escaped lab Tasmanian Devil running amok in a National Park in Southern California was released. It is the only other Tassie Devil movie. See more »

Goofs

One of the devil creatures jumps onto the flying helicopter. When the camera angle is from inside the helicopter the front pilot's door is closed. But when the camera angle is from the ground looking at the helicopter, the front pilot's door is partially open. See more »

Although it runs out of steam towards the end, Tasmanian Devils is not bad for a SyFy movie
2 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will admit it by saying that I do hate many of SyFy's movies with a passion. I'll also be honest in saying that I was expecting to hate Tasmanian Devils. So I was surprised at how surprisingly not bad it was. By all means it is not great but it is much more tolerable than most SyFy movies. I did find the first hour of Tasmanian Devils entertaining. The creature effects are fake(though not as bad as the horrid CGI helicopter at the start), which was more than less what I was anticipating, though I did find the creatures themselves quite creepy and fun. The gore wasn't excessive and didn't cheapen the death scenes, which were more inventive and suspenseful than the usual SyFy death scenes, which are usually toned-down and like going-through-the-motions. The editing isn't too choppy, the scenery is quite nice, the story does divert your attention(that is in the first hour) and the acting while not great is better than average for SyFy. There are entertaining moments as well(cheesy of course but more in a fun way than infuriating), such as the death of Apolo Ohno, Winnie Cooper attacking the creatures with a flame-thrower and the hilarious close-ups of Danika McKellar gnashing her teeth and wrinkling her nose.

For all the good things about Tasmanian Devils there do come a number of debits. The dialogue is terrible(hardly surprising, I don't think I have seen a SyFy movie where this wasn't a weak point) and the music is generic, but the biggest problem is how the movie really runs out of steam in the second half. Here the creatures are under-utilised which dilutes the tension and fun factor, and things get more serious. This wouldn't be a problem if it was a tone that was maintained throughout the movie and if SyFy were any good at trying to develop or humanise characters. Instead what happens is that the second half feels as though it belongs in a completely different movie altogether. The pacing is sluggish, and while there is an attempt to humanise and get to know the characters it just felt flat and lifeless, so despite these efforts we end up not caring or finding out enough about them. And unfortunately the fun and tension in this half is nowhere near as effective as it was in the first half, and the ending feels contrived and rushed through.

All in all, I was mixed on Tasmanian Devils. It was much better than I expected it to be and it is easily one of SyFy's more tolerable efforts, but at the end of the day it was a decent enough if not entirely memorable outing. 5/10 Bethany Cox
