      Audience Member A quiet vacation away to a remote country estate soon spells disaster for six friends, who awaken the demons that have been locked away beneath the hallowed grounds before succumbing to their ancient evil. BACK FROM HELL takes us on a first-hand journey to hell using the popular "found-footage" technique, but with far less success than films like [REC] and THE LAST EXORCISM. Between the awful audio and atrocious accents, it is impossible to understand much of what is being said, not that the cliched dialog that does make it through is even worth listening for. BACK FROM HELL is disastrously boring from start to finish, packing minimal shocks and very little terror in any of the events occurring on screen. A surefire way to drive audiences away from the characters is to have them squabble and fight from the very beginning, making their struggle for survival both empty and emotionless. Any sane person would have stopped filming as soon as their friends start becoming possessed and mutilated, let alone the fact that the camera is left rolling overnight on several occasions for no apparent reason at all. These things and more force us to constantly call into question the choice in style, which is the last thing the audience should be focusing on. BACK FROM HELL is an extremely amateur effort that never rises above any of its contemporaries. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Confusing, and quite a bore. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review damien n Wow. Exorcism films don't get more confusing, convoluted and boring than this! The subject matter is far too heavy for the writers talents and the "art house" shot on shitteo look and feel of the movie is nauseating. A few actors pull off these sad lines but not enough to make the entire film work. Starts off as a haunted house flick, turns into a exorcism film. Then has the nerve to end it like an epidemic/zombie film. Too much and too little was going on for me to care about the plot or the characters. Just plain bad! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Someone says this horror is classic. Pah, I think he means stale. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent movie some scary parts Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A decent found-footage demonic possession film, Back from Hell features some genuinely cool/creepy moments, but it just never quite coheres in a way that would make it great.
