Subtle yet effective horror film that doesn't rely on special effects or cheap clichés.
29 September 2012 | by sempremilanistaSee all my reviews

To start, can we agree that the three user reviewers that gave this film one star must have written by the same person? I think I am a pretty discerning horror fan and know this is far from a one star film. Devil's Mercy is surely not that bad.

While not some brilliant masterpiece of horror, it is still really effective and a fun watch. Stephen Rea shines in his role as the sinister landlord who is not all that he seems, and the dynamic he shares with his young partner is well done and adds an interetsing twist. There are notes of Rosemary's Baby and other films where the creepiest moments do not rely on cheap special effects, dark lighting or shaky camera shots. In fact, it's that sense of things feeling normal and safe which lends to a nice increase in suspense when we realize things are hardly what they seem on the outside.

If you like movies with themes of dark witchcraft, sinister intentions, spooky old houses, and possession than you might find this worth the watch.
