I actually groan when a horror movie begins with a Bible quote, especially if it's about "The Number of Beast". But I must say I was surprised by this film.
It begins with a teenaged boy daring a girl, Hannah (Ashley Rickards) to sell her soul to the devil. She doesn't take it all that seriously at first, but things get creepy when he takes her out to a lone trailer in the desert and they meet a creepy guy, who tests her. He gives her $500 and tells her to go to the nearby crossroads and say her name three times. Then, "HE" will choose her one day. We don't see what she decides to do. But sometime later, when she's back at her parent's house, she hears a demonic voice--and is levitated and throne against a wall.
Then, the story abruptly shifts to that of two Mexican sisters, Leigh and Vera (Naya Rivera of GLEE), who are completely different in personality. Leigh is an upbeat realtor and Vera is a dark artist. Leigh gets hired to sell what turns out to be the teenager's house. The parents have fallen on hard times and their daughter has run away with her boyfriend. When Leigh says she's seen the daughter in the house when she was looking around, they are concerned. And it gets weirder when she visits the house a second time and confront the girl again--yet it's not the couple's daughter. You see, it is Hannah--but Hannah died in 1987. At this point the movie goes back and forth from the present to the 80's, with what Hannah experienced after selling her soul to the devil. And midway through, Vera becomes the main character and has to deal with some unexpected trouble.
AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR is by far one of the best devil oriented horror movies from this past year, interesting and unpredictable. Highly recommended
