Netflix movies and shows: The Devil All the Time
Oh this movie. If you’ve been on social media, you’ve probably seen a joke tweet or two about it. Robert Pattinson decided to forgo a voice coach to help him with his Southern accent and…it shows, but that kind of gives this very dark movie kind of a strange vibe. The rest of the cast makes up for the strange “Southern” accent.
Besides Pattinson, the cast includes Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Haley Bennett, Sebastian Stan, Riley Keough, and Jason Clarke.
Jason Clarke does one of the best American accents ever. Why didn’t Robert Pattinson talk to him? Whatever.
The film revolves around Arvin Russell and his family. To put it simply, they’ve had it rough. His mother dies, his dog is killed by his father, and his father commits suicide, leaving Arvin an orphan. Arvin, all alone, goes to live with his grandmother and discovers he has an adopted sister named Lenora.
While living there, he sees Lenora being molested by some bullies and beats them severely. Unfortunately, she is later sexually assaulted and becomes pregnant. Not wanting to add shame to her family, Lenora ends her life. Arvin gets his revenge.
On the run, Arvin is picked up by a couple who turn out to be serial killers. Luckily, with all the stuff Arvin has been through up to this point, he more than prepared to defend himself and when the crimes of the couple are covered up, he does what he can to make sure people know what they were.
It isn’t until after their crimes are revealed that he’s finally able to grieve everything he lost and find some semblance of peace.
Needless to say, if you are triggered by suicide, sexual assault, and/or rape, this is probably a movie you want to skip.
If you’re ok with watching that, this might be a movie you want to check out. Oh and if you’re a Robert Pattinson fan, be ready to hate him, because he causes a lot of harm in the movie and I’m not just talking about the accent.
