Film Review: ‘I Trapped the Devil’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘I Trapped the Devil’
I Trapped the Devil” sounds like the title of a sermon or gospel song, but it’s a very literal-minded statement coming from the mouth of a leading character in writer-director Josh Lobo’s debut feature. This being a horror film, there’s a chance he’s even literally correct, rather than simply mad. A mixed-bag frightfest, IFC’s limited theatrical release doesn’t ultimately provide quite enough reward for a slow buildup. But 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.

In a framing device, two policemen break into a seemingly empty house where something is intangibly amiss. As they’re just about to find out what that is, the film jumps back several hours earlier, when others are arriving at the same house. Matt (Aj Bowen) and wife Karen

Patience Is Necessary For “I Trapped The Devil”

Slow burn horror/thrillers require some very specific tools to proceed. Especially when the title is an independent one with limited money and time at its disposal, it’s easier thought of than executed. In the case of this week’s new release I Trapped the Devil, as novel concept ends up ever so slightly underwhelming. Something like this probably needed some stronger acting to keep you invested as the tension builds. Admittedly, the ending is solid, but not quite solid enough to make up for 70 or so minutes that’s come before it. This is far from a bad work, though I can’t bring myself to give it a full on recommendation. The movie is a mix of horror and thriller, told with a vast amount of patience. Set during Christmas, this is a look at a family reunion of sorts gone very wrong. When Matt (Aj Bowen

Review: ‘I Trapped the Devil’ Revels in Sinister Yuletide Horror

Tragedy struck some time ago and we honestly don’t need to know the details to understand how it’s affected the three characters we’re about to meet. Steve (Scott Poythress) is the one who’s hurting from it and has been ever since. Maybe his brother Matt (Aj Bowen) thought space was needed for him to heal or maybe he was just too unsure about what he could do to help alleviate his pain and/or scared about what doing so entailed, but it’s been awhile since they’ve last seen each other. This is why Matt’s wife Karen (Susan Burke) has dragged him out during Christmas to make certain her brother-in-law wouldn’t be alone. With Steve proving less surprised than inconvenienced upon their impromptu arrival, the gesture might be too late.

Or maybe it’s just in time since writer/director Josh Lobo’s

Review: I Trapped The Devil is Cerebrally Charged Psychological Horror at its Best

I Trapped the Devil is a film that dares to ask some really complicated questions about the nature of evil. It ruminates on them and uses the lack of a concise answer to enhance the uncertainty of its atmosphere and to create a mood that is deeply unsettling.

Matt (Aj Bowen) and Karen (Susan Burke) decide to visit Matt’s estranged brother Steve (Scott Poythress) for Christmas. Their relationship is rocky, but Karen wants the couple to make the effort to reach out and bridge the gap. When they arrive, they notice immediately that Steve is acting strangely. At first, he seems overly nervous and jumpy, but as we spend more time with him, we begin to see the depth of his paranoia. Something is definitely not right. They soon learn what. Locked in Steve's basement is a man that Steve claims is the Devil himself. Has Steve lost his mind completely,

Movie Review – I Trapped the Devil (2019)

I Trapped the Devil, 2019.

Written and Directed by Josh Lobo.

Starring Aj Bowen, Susan Burke, Jocelin Donahue, Scott Poythress, Chris Sullivan, Rowan Russell, and Josh Marrott.

Synopsis:

A disturbed man descends into paranoia after he believes he has trapped the devil in his basement. The claustrophobic fear is only intensified when his brother and sister-in-law arrive over the Christmas holidays.

I Trapped the Devil details the story of Steve (Scott Poythress), a lonely, seemingly extremely depressed individual harbouring a terrible secret. A surprise visit from his brother Matt (Aj Bowen) and sister-in-law Karen (Susan Burke) to celebrate the holidays introduces another surprise – this time wholly more horrible – into their lives. Steve believes he has managed to trap a man in his basement who is the devil himself.

Understandably, Matt and Karen find this somewhat difficult to believe. Has Steve had a complete schizophrenic breakdown? Did he miss taking his medication too many times?

"There is something evil locked behind that door!" IFC Midnight has debuted an official trailer for the indie horror thriller I Trapped the Devil, an intriguing horror mystery set during the Holidays. Here's what it's about: a man descends into paranoia after trapping what he believes to be the devil in his basement, but things take a dark turn when his family (his estranged brother) unexpectedly arrive for the holidays.
