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.

Did You Know?


Robert Pattinson didn't work with a dialect coach and crafted his high-pitched Southern drawl on his own. The actor hid his accent from everyone - including director Antonio Campos - until day one of filming. Other actors sent Campos recordings of the voices they were working on - but not Pattinson, preferring to rehearse by himself and getting self-conscious by being judged before actually standing in front of the camera. Campos called Pattinson a "mad genius who can do anything." See more »


Willard's unit crest indicates he was part of the 3rd Marine Division, which only saw action in the Pacific Theater. He comes home with a German Luger pistol, although the 3rd MarDiv did not see action in Europe. See more »
