Upon his confirmation into the Catholic church, sixteen-year-old Alex (Luca Oriel) has resolved to become a priest even though his mentor Father Cutler (Rick Ravanello, THE CAVE) has recommended that he use his teenage years to find out what he would be giving up for the church, including his crush on classmate Lia (Jasper Polish, SOME KIND OF HATE). Discovering a sealed box in a hidden compartment in a wardrobe belonging to his dying grandmother, Alex and his father Marcos (Marcos A. Ferraez, SONS OF ANARCHYTHE CELL 2) is disturbed by the gift since it was once worn by her grandfather whose molested Alex when he was a child (of which he has no memory). A dark entity starts to make its presence known to Alex, cursing God and driving him to mood swings and destructive behavior. His parents are convinced that Alex's repressed memories may be surfacing but Alex is convinced that a demon wants to possess his soul, leaving him to confide in Father Cutler. When Cutler experiences an unexplained stroke, Alex fears that anyone else in whom has confided is in mortal danger. While DEVIL'S WHISPER ultimately resorts to the usual possession stylistics and CGI demons, it actually builds its story upon a compelling idea in which it is just as easy to believe that memories of a childhood trauma resurfacing may be causing the protagonist to act out and convince him that "God is a liar" (since his molester's own suggested mental problems may have gone undiagnosed in favor of seeking religious comfort). If the film ultimately does not stand out from the pack of PG-13-ish possession flicks of the last decade or so, DEVIL'S WHISPER is at least well-made and well-acted by all involved.

Comments

Vega Baby's single-layer, progressive, anamorphic DVD does the job for this slick digitally-photographed and CGI-augmented production. The Dolby Digital 5.1 track devotes the surround track to the usual demonic whispers and growls and optional English SDH subtitles are provided along with burned-in English subtitles for some incidental Spanish dialogue. There are no extras apart from some start-up trailers.
