Tom (Matt Simpson Siegel) and his handicapped and mute brother Vern
(Jason Roth) are two homeless beggars wandering the streets of the big
city, and apparently they have done so for years ... but today, something
is different, today Vern sees signs everywhere telling him "You've
been chosen" - the exact meaning of which eludes him, but worries him
still. Tom on the other hand doesn't seem to perceive any of these signs,
but then again he's too busy setting up a fix for the night, something
Vern doesn't approve of, but what can he do ...
Tom and Vern spend the
night in an abandoned building that's (naturally) a mess, but no worse
than all the other abandoned buildings they have slept in before - safe
for the fact that when they wake up they find a murdered girl next to
them, a girl who certainly wasn't there the night before. Plus they find
out they have spent the night in the center of a pentagram, cleverly
covered by newspapers ... and soon the doors to another world open on
them, and the forces of that world show little mercy to our hapless
heroes, as they need the two bums in their grander scheme of things ...
the Devil is certainly a very unusual film - but in a good way: It
tells a totally weird to outlandish story in a very stringent manner, uses
a myriad of digital effects even when it doesn't have to logically, just
to create the right atmosphere, and even if some of the effects look less
than convincing, they help to create a sense of estrangement. And add to
this a couple of actors who play off each other very well and are more
than capable to carry the movie, and a handful of surprises to keep
everyone on the edge of their seats, and you've got yourself ... something
very weird, but good at the same time.
