    Intriguing, and thought provoking.

    I honestly didn’t exactly know what I was getting into heading into
    this one. But to a pleasant surprise, this one surprised me. The acting
    in this film was solid, and I felt as if the actors really had heart
    for their characters they played. The characters we’re given are
    unique, at times, however, presented on multiple levels with small
    shards of clich├ęs, but overall entertaining, and unique enough to hold
    us off. The overall story I honestly felt it to be surprising. It had a
    good premise to where it introduces twists, and small surprises that
    satisfied. The story, and or premise also had some creative offerings,
    giving some eye opening take-ons. Keeping this review very short, the
    film overall was successful in holding the attention of us, audience.
    It was unique, refreshing, and for the most part the given story was
    thought provoking, new, and fresh. The plus-elements including the
    characters and such succeeded as well, adding onto the film’s success.
    This was a great, pleasantly surprising thriller, if you can see it,
    I’d recommend doing so.

    This movie stunk

    Argh even though the 3d effects were OK, the movie stunk. A story line
    that made no sense and I was bored throughout the entire movie ready to
    turn it off on numerous occasions. Gabriela? I don’t get it him. Why
    was he even in the movie. The actor just dragged the movie down and
    added nothing to the plot. Nothing in the movie made sense, the main
    actress’s artwork was awful even though that was suppose to be her
    profession, many cameos by 2 bit actors haunted me and their lines were
    laughable changing from humans to non-humans were poorly done. I was
    really agitated towards the end of the movie and came to the conclusion
    that I wasted 90 minutes of my life when I could have been watching
    Archer reruns.

    A truly great schizophrenic thriller!

    ‘SCREAM AT THE DEVIL’ is a psychological SCHIZOPHRENIC THRILLER,
    revolving around a paranoid schizophrenic who believes her own
    tormented imagination. This wonderful film is really a look into the
    mind of a severely deranged woman that refuses any help. ‘Scream at the
    Devil’ takes the audience on a wild ride through the same emotional
    battle as the lead character Miriam, experiencing extreme confusion,
    intense paranoia and the constant terror of believing her own
    imagination. The details of every picture or horror film that she has
    ever seen, every book that she has ever read, every person that she has
    ever met gets twisted into a series of demonic attacks in Miriam’s
    tormented mind. Or is it possible that people who our society calls
    insane are able to see a world that the rest of us cannot? Do you
    believe in the Devil?

    Do you wanna waste your time with a crazy old lady?

    ”A beautiful schizophrenic woman is pushed over the edge by her
    husbands illicit affairs” Let’s start with the description written by
    the director. I am sorry but the lady is a grandma! A beautiful
    schizophrenic woman sounds more like a young student character not a
    grandma! Okay lets move to the story, narrative, and character. The
    main lady character acts like she was 30 years old who wants to be
    pregnant again when she looks like she is at least 50 years old. She
    also has a very annoying character. Basically a dumb aggressive old
    woman refuses to take her meds and instead suffers from weird
    hallucinations. Acting is amateur, directing is basic and the story is
    very simple. Overall, the movie is awful.

    Love Shari but hate this kind of movie..

    After about the 4th or 5th ”is she dreaming or not ” scenario,, you
    just don’t care any more..!!!! Movies based on constant ”fooling” the
    audience are just cheap shots at film making, especially in the
    horror/thriller genre… It means you the viewer are meaningless in
    their whole process.. They don’t care about you,,, as they don’t need
    to have reason, continuity or plot development.,, they can just cruise
    to an end with the old ”is it real or not” nonsense…. Love Shari as
    she always made a vulnerable heroine… shame she just didn’t have more
    to work with here.. Hopefully will she in another starring role
    soon….

    Crazy

    I know some might think me giving this 5/10 is crazy, which is fair
    enough, though I was referring to the movie or its theme in general.
    And I do know, that the movie has flaws. Beginning with some of the
    acting, the shot selection and the script. Some might even take offense
    because this does pay tribute (read copies!) some classic horror movies
    (Rosemarys Baby to name just one).

    But generally speaking there is appeal. There is appeal in the really
    out there, trip this is offering. And you don’t have to be on a ”trip”
    to get it or to like it either. It’s about paranoia, it’s about seeing
    things that may or may not be there. It’s about mental health and about
    demons. Or just one rather than the other? But which one? If you are
    able to watch this, with a mindset like that, you will be entertained
    enough to like it (despite all the flaws)

    Was that Candyman?

    Well it wasn’t all terrible. There were some creepy scenes to be
    honest, but the over all plot had a lot to be desired.

    The main character was interesting, but wasn’t done well. I’m not sure
    if it was the writing or acting or both. Either Shari Shattuck over
    acted, a lot, or the writing was bad and her reactions were often too
    much for the scene.

    They never really developed characters much in the movie either. Not
    that you have to have that, but here it would have been helpful. It was
    obvious you aren’t supposed to like the husband, and they elude to some
    affair, but never expound upon it at all. He acts like a jerk a few
    times to make sure you don’t like him, but that’s pretty much it.

    The main character plays crazy well enough, but I don’t know, it just
    lacked something.

    Oh and Candyman makes an appearance to show people how acting works.

    Good idea…bad everything else

    ”A beautiful schizophrenic woman is pushed over the edge by her
    husband’s illicit affairs, and when her hallucinations become reality
    the Devil comes to take his due.”

    Nothing in that description is actually true. The woman is not
    ”beautiful” and ”her husband’s illicit affairs” didn’t pushed her ”over
    the edge” nor ”her hallucinations become reality”.

    So when a movie says ”the story is about unicorns” and it’s actually
    about horses…you have a serious problem at hand.

    The movie tells the story of Mirium Jones, a woman suffering from
    schizophrenia that decides to ”leave it all behind” when her husband
    cheats on her with a younger woman. She also lost her unborn children
    due to a miscarriage. See? And you thought your life was bad.

    So she decides to take a trip to Venice and goes to a Basilica (a very
    old and magnificent church) basically to pray to the Devil (?) for a
    chance of getting pregnant again. Because everyone knows that if you
    need to make a Pact with Satan…the obvious place to go is a church.

    Then without any kind of explanation the emotionally scarred woman
    decides to go back with her husband, who buys a huge house in the
    mountains and builds a ”studio” for her and her paintings.

    But then…everything goes to hell when all of a sudden all the
    characters become like corrupted versions of themselves. Again, without
    any sort of real explanation.

    Strange things start to happen all around Mirium and the obvious
    question Writer/Director Joseph P. Stachura wants you to ask is ”is it
    all real or not?” ”are all these due to the schizophrenia or is the
    Devil’s work?”. A very interesting idea (albeit not an original one at
    this point) that Stachura completely ruins with his awful directing job
    and a worse script.

    The acting in this movie is an insult to the senses and not even Tony
    Todd is able to deliver a worthy performance. Shari Shattuck as Mirium
    is a complete mess and most of her performance just jumps from
    overacting to plain pathetic acting. The rest of the cast is
    just…well…let’s just say ”bad”.

    Photography is forgettable, except for the Venice portion of the movie
    (the first 7-8 minutes of it).

    The SFX are something straight out of a B Movie. The Syfy original
    movies’ FX are almost something out of Industrial Light & Magic
    compared to these ones.

    Oh…and the ending completely disregards everything you see just
    minutes prior to it.

    Seriously, this movie couldn’t be any more worse even if it were 90
    minutes of still pictures of grass.

    Just do yourself a favor and skip it. This is probably one of the worst
    movies released in 2015.

    Had me on the edge of my seat!

    If you have a brain and are over 25, this film will appeal to you. ”A
    beautiful schizophrenic woman is pushed over the edge by her husband’s
    illicit affairs” is indeed the perfect description of this terror film.
    Shari Shattuck is brilliant as Miriam. One cannot help but to fall in
    love with her electifying performance.

    Filmed in Venice, Joseph P. Stachura has taken the beauty of that City
    and made it really creepy.As Miriam returns to the States, things
    really go wrong and that’s where one really has to have a certain level
    of intelligence to ”get it”. I won’t spoil it for you but SEE THIS
    FILM!!

    Terrible Movie

    This is one of the worst horror movies I have ever seen. I watched it
    because it had gotten some good reviews on Amazon but now I’m wondering
    who wrote those (friends of the director?)

    The plot is about a woman who goes to Italy and makes a deal with the
    devil to have a baby. When she returns home she starts having
    nightmares and seeing visions of demons.

    The problem is the movie is NOT SCARY and the acting is SO AWFUL. The
    director seems to ”borrow” a lot from other horror films. There is one
    scene that is a complete rip-off of Rosemary’s Baby.

    Tony Todd (Candyman) was listed as one of the stars but he doesn’t show
    up until the end and had a very small role. I actually felt bad he had
    to take this part.

    I advise other horror fans to skip this movie – it’s very, very BAD.

    Don’t watch it!

    SCREAM AT THE DEVIL is an awful and pointless independent horror
    production. The cover has been designed to make it look like your
    standard possession flick, but this is nothing like. Instead it’s the
    humdrum tale of your ordinary housewife who begins to suffer from
    mental illness and finds herself assailed by weird, demonic visions and
    other phenomena.

    I’m not sure what the market is for a film like this, which so
    obviously must have been a non-starter for those making it. It lacks a
    single sympathetic character in the whole cast and for 90% of the
    running time the viewer is saddled with the below-par acting of Shari
    Shattuck, an ageing former TV star who fails to hold the attention at
    all. Oh yeah, and Tony Todd cameos as a cop, but he’s no reason to tune
    into this silly and pointless production.

    I’ve never seen a rating this low from IMDB…2.5.

    I’m watching the last of the movie as I’m typing this. I just can’t
    take anymore of this pile of garbage…and believe me…I want to use
    much worse language, but I’m trying to be classy. First clue was
    putting it into the DVD and seeing it go straight to PLAY MOVIE. No
    trailers of any kind. RED FLAG. A movie is like a new book. If the
    first chapter doesn’t grab you, the rest of the book never will. I kept
    an open mind, but after the first 45 minutes…and let me remind you
    that this movie is only 98 minutes long…I kinda gave up. Like in
    looking around and wondering how much longer I’d have to endure this. I
    also wondered how this piece of dung was green lighted in the first
    place. How does something like this ever make it to a group of people
    who put their money into something that if the screenplay is read out
    loud that they don’t leave the room at that very moment! The only
    reason I gave it a 1 is that they don’t have a zero! I DID see one
    person I knew in the film…the guy who played in the film Canyman.
    God…he MUST be on hard times if he actually said yes to this steaming
    pile of….manure. Sorry. Tried not to use that kind of language, but
    every man has a limit. Don’t watch this trash. Don’t rent this trash.
    Try to not look at it when you see it in the Redbox. It isn’t worth
    your time. It’s 98 minutes and a $1.60 I’ll never get back. I’m gonna
    go get drunk and try to kill the brain cells that carry the memory of
    this movie!
