DANIEL IRAWAN (Dan at the Movies)

While the idea of combining horror with sci-fi is quite brilliant, the storytelling and executions in The Diabolical couldn’t live up to it. Rating: ★★1/2


You get relatively strong and resilient characters, which is a nice change for a haunted house horror once in a while — although you never know why or how they get to be this way. Aside from that, The Diabolical is a mess. Legrand tried to take a new spin on an exhausted story and blend it with sci-fi to make the characters look more active and empowered. But, he failed to do it in an engaging way, and you ended up being served with a puzzling sci-fi, and a horror movie that doesn’t scare. Rating: NA
