      Prey for the Devil

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      There's no dearth of possession stories within the genre, and potboiler Prey for the Devil may leave completists needing a truly horrific -- or at least fun -- exorcist palate cleanser.

      Audience Consensus

      Prey for the Devil may not do much that other exorcism horror movies haven't done before, but it has a decent story and some solid jump scares.

However, short on development shorting scarry things from the film and need a bit more exorcism scenes and work. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/05/22 Full Review Johnny I haven't seen a good scary movie in a whole. This was great, not cheesy at all. Great jump scares. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/08/22 Full Review stephanie m Really got me in some parts of the movie that I jumped in my seat. I give it some good originality for the story line if you like these types of movies. Some was kinda predictable but I'd watch again at the novies.

      Victoria Luxford BBC.com So derivate of (the Exorcist), and even the films it inspired… when there are so many better films like this flooding streaming services, it begs the question – why do we need another? Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2022 Full Review A.A. Dowd Chron This is just another regurgitation of yesterday's devout scare tactics, spewing diet Exorcist clichés as freely as Linda Blair once painted the walls in pea soup. Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Leigh Monson AV Club Its dominant thematic threads are at war with one another, shambling around as one story wears the flesh and appearance of another, leaving neither premise wholly intact in a film with the meat stripped from its bones. Rated: D Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Prabhjot Bains Tilt Magazine While Stamm’s latest effort isn’t the worst the genre has on offer, it is one of the most frustrating— filled with promise that is quickly exorcized. Nov 2, 2023 Full Review Randy Meeks Espinof Prey for the Devil tries to be religious, feminist, terrifying and led by a nuanced protagonist, but it fails on almost all fronts. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 3, 2023 Full Review Allison Rose FlickDirect Offering a little twist on the typical exorcist movie, Prey for the Devil combines jump scares with hypotheses on possession and exorcism...
