Storyline

Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, The Devil All the Time follows a cast of compelling and bizarre characters from the end of World War II to the 1960s. There's Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can't save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer no matter how much sacrificial blood he pours on his "prayer log." There's Carl and Sandy Henderson, a husband-and-wife team of serial killers, who troll America's highways searching for suitable models to photograph and exterminate. There's the spider-handling preacher Roy and his crippled virtuoso-guitar-playing sidekick, Theodore, running from the law. And caught in the middle of all this is Arvin Eugene Russell, Willard and Charlotte's orphaned son, who grows up to be a good but also violent man in his own right.

Goofs

Russell's 1948-1950 Ford truck has a late-model steering column, steering wheel, and column shift for an automatic transmission. It's seen early when Russell drives over to beat up the poachers. That truck would have had a manual transmission and a very different steering wheel. See more »

Holland and Pattinson lead an amazing cast!
16 September 2020 | by RobScott-13See all my reviews

I never read the book "The Devil All the Time" so I didn't know what to expect but I really enjoyed this movie. Tom Holland & Robert Pattinson lead an All-Star cast that are all at the top of their game here. Pattinson is amazing as usual. He's quickly become one of the better actors around and Holland? Wow, this is such a dramatic role that shows how good of an actor he really is.
