Nikki, a young woman that recently downloaded Mr. Bedevil, a mysterious Siri-like A.I. app, is stalked by a paranormal presence and is later found dead from a shock-induced heart attack.
Following her funeral, Nikki’s boyfriend, Cody, and best friend, Alice, along with Alice’s boyfriend, Gavin, and friends, Haley and Dan, all receive invites to download Mr. Bedevil. They decide to download the app, which results in the group getting tormented by Mr. Bedevil and becoming haunted according to their personal fears.
They subsequently discover brands on their bodies in the shape of Mr. Bedevil’s app icon and eventually accept that the app is intent on killing them…
“What we have here is a charming, albeit occasionally predictable, character-driven horror movie with a splash of modern sensibilities. While some of the scenes involving the titular app’s capabilities may seem cheesy at first, especially with how gullible the teens seem to be, there are still some honest scares to be had with the film.” Luiz H.C., Bloody Disgusting
“Bedeviled is basically a poor man’s Nightmare on Elm Street. Describing it as by-the-book isn’t quite right as it never turns past the first page of being pat, predictable, and pedestrian in every sense as a supernatural slasher. About the best that can be said of Bedeviled is that it is “eh, ok” for a SyFy Saturday matinee.” Culture Crypt
