Reviews:

“Anyone who enjoyed The Pact is going to love McCarthy’s impressive second film. It’s clever, bizarre, and wildly satisfying. From beginning to end it’s filled with thrilling ideas and claustrophobic tension. Despite the presence of cliches, At the Devil’s Door is one of the most inventive and effective horror films I’ve seen in a while.” Bloody Disgusting

“To McCarthy’s credit, nothing in At the Devil’s Door unfolds as we are trained to expect. It starts with the three central characters that aren’t your typical screaming damsels, and extends to McCarthy’s use of practical effects and utter lack of “found footage”. McCarthy deserves a ton of praise for trying something new, and hopefully he’ll keep it up because horror could use a few more films like At the Devil’s Door.” Punch Drunk Critics

“At the Devil’s Door makes the case for Nicholas McCarthy’s potential as a horror director. There is plenty to like in this film in terms of atmosphere and fright, but his director half needs to demand more from his writer half. Every horror film released today stands in the shadows of films like The Conjuring and Oculus. That doesn’t mean they need A-list stars or directors; that means they must remember that a horror story isn’t just about the horror; it’s about the story, too.” Way Too Indie
