Netflix’s Devil in Ohio brings back the Old.

September 20, 2022 By derrick

The new horror/mystical drama series from Netflix has a taste of all familiar movies like ‘Hole in the ground’ and Cabin in the Woods. Starring Emily Deschanel (Bones) the series takes off when a lost girl is admitted into a hospital (Madeleine Arthur) with the latter as a nurse in the Hospital.

The series with reference maybe to classic horrors with the likes of Carrie by Stephen King doesn’t put more emphasis on the supernatural but fixates basically on ritualistic occurrences seemingly. Directed by John Fawcett, the aura is one of locale and emphasis on mostly darkly culture and phenomena. Most times veering off the main goal as pictures of family and bonding is structured and then marked with flashes of impressionable or rather seemingly frightful scenes. The series rolls on into storytelling in the first few episodes as we are drawn into the lives of the characters which appeared a little too warm for a seemingly horror spinoff, missing the marks of family loss as in popular hit horror movies like Insidious and The Conjuring (James Wan).

Having only one season the story is rather brief for a series with obvious depth. There are no announcements for a second season as of the moment by Netflix.
