a horror movie review
Bedeviled is like One Missed Call, Dead Silence and Stay Alive. Strange movies where a device can use ruin your life. Well, I guess in one of those aforementioned, it dealt with a doll, but you know what I mean. Bedeviled is one of those movies that doesn't carry much by way of scare factor, but it's creepy. Creepy, dumb and good.
"There's an app for that!"
Isn't that the new saying? Well, in Bedeviled, the app you start off with isn't the one you die with. It can help organize your school schedule, homework, bills and even turn your lights on and off. But once you really get to know it and it knows you, your time's pretty much up!
In the movie, a paranormal Siri/Alexa-like demon gets to you by haunting your device. Bedeviled opens with the death of a girl who you later discover was friends with the other five characters. One by one, they use the app, thinking a friend's referred it to them. Once it's on their phones, it's over! It begins to say things no A.I. should be saying- especially from a.phone! It plays with your mind and then it does things to you.
Bedeviled wasn't too bad, but it was predictable due to the nature of the movie. I have to admit though- I liked it. It was a bit different, but still dumb. No real jump scares, but creepy as all get out because the thing talks to you. Then it goes off. I was like, "Wha?" It's a trip movie. I mean, look at that freaking clown face for the trailer!
Bedeviled is available on Netflix. Check it out.
