The characters were bland and stupid, the directing needed some serious work, and the script was just a giant shipwreck.

I fell asleep .

The actors do what they can with a script jammed with stereotypes and tropes that soon bore.

Cases in point; the group of high school friends don't talk, or act, like high-schoolers (all the females, including the extras in the brief classroom shots, were cast from the "hot girl" casting pool and non of them look younger than early twenties); with two or three brief exceptions these kids practically live in a bubble - none of them have parents, or siblings, or know anyone else at school except each other since they don't interact with anybody or have outside interests and certainly no jobs (they live in super fancy homes yet none of them even have maids, or gardeners in the absence of parents); they know they're being stalked through their phones by an evil app but still continue to go home to their dark, empty houses and stay connected thru their phones.

But it went in an unexpected direction for the worse.

On top of all this, they tried to create a 3rd dimensions with the characters by having them make boring conversation about the future and other nonsense.

However, the story does feel over-stretched and some of it feels vague, under-explained in the last third where the film especially became duller, more predictable, more senseless and less scary.

The acting is painfully bland, the directors and writers clearly don't know how teenagers talk, act, or even look.

I would've called the pastor so fast "Hey I've got a demon in my phone help please" Seriously don't waste your time.

in the top ten worst movies on netflix .

Add to this uninspired and bad acting and equally uninspiring sets (the last 15 minutes we have to spend the big finale in the dark old basement of an abandoned factory, not in the least creepy, it impressed me more as something the producers could hire at a bargain price) and a whole lot of unfathomable meant-to-be wiz kid mumbo-jumbo about soft- and hardware and how to get rid of the killer app (as if a supernatural devilish app would give a damn about any digital logic!

It was so predictable I could even follow it on x30 speed.

This movie is so dull that I fell asleep.

A lot of the film has underdeveloped plot elements and often nonsensical and confusing character motivations, while too many of the killings are far from creative or scary and are pretty tame.

If you enjoyed "It Follows" you'll find Bedeviled just as enjoyable.

The terrible acting, corny antagonist and predictable, stereotypical story makes this a painful experience.

'Bedeviled' drew me into seeing it, with a cool poster/cover, an intriguing and quite creative premise and as someone with a general appreciation for horror.

Seriously don't waste your time, terrible plot and even worse acting.

Making the film feel bland and forgettable with not enough heart put into it.

As it stands, Bedeviled is a predictable, boring teen horror jump-scare movie that relies on every single done-to-death trope out there.

Look at the reviews and don't waste your time.

It is an enjoyable movie...

), and you get what you can expect: a lame, un-scary and boring movie.

It's like they dragged people off the streets and gave them $10 and said do your best.

In all honestly, the movie really just doesn't have that terribly much going for it, but the film makers really seem to make an effort to infuse scary, suspenseful visuals and sounds and appear to be TRYING at least to put things together and craft something that comes across as somewhat scary in an old-fashioned kind of way.

One of the worst movies ever made.

I liked it, but at that 40 min point, when they just had "scenes" with no story, I realized they really didn't seem to have anywhere to go.

I know this movie is predictable beyond belief.
