Devour
Release Date: 10 August 2005 (Finland)
Genre: Horror
Director(s): David Winkler (Finding Graceland)
Writer(s): Adam Gross & Seth Gross
Starring: Dominique Swan, William Sadler, Jensen Ackles

Devour, which may or may not have been intended as a theatrical release (although with the complete lack of star power, I’m leaning towards the later), went direct-to-video from Columbia Tristar a month and a half ago. It’s probably for the best that this went that route, as Devour has that unmistakable stink resonating off its carcass just as The Forsaken had a few years ago. And if you don’t have a ridiculously useless talent for remembering this kind of stuff, let me just note that The Forsaken, while not a bomb considering its budget, belonged direct-to-video and nothing more.

Despite the Devour title and box art suggesting a vampire romp of sorts, which is exactly why I waited so long to finally pop this in, Devour’s actually a supernatural flick about a trio of college kids who begin to use a computer program without knowing the evil that lurks inside. While we learn later what the actual muddled origin is, all you need to know from the start is that all of our hero Jake’s friends start winding up dead in particularly gory ways. This is after some pretty terrible things happen to the people who wrong them. Now Jake must unravel the mystery, have a lot of lame dreams, and meet up with a devil worshipping William Sadler.

While Sadler does well for himself, his appearance marks the film’s turn from a fun thriller with nice effects to a mess that just keeps piling on extra material for us to dissect. Then there’s the ending that’s just a total copout.

Or maybe they’re leaving that for the sequel? HAH!

DVD: Barebones.
