In the Australian Outback, two estranged brothers discover old secrets and family lies. As their friends start to go missing they fear they are being stalked by someone or something from their worst fears…


“While the CGI creature looks better than some of the things I’ve seen in much more recent films, it still suffers from being rendered with 2016 technology, and several scenes, especially those involving a green screen are noticeably rough […] in many ways, it’s better off for the re-editing. Without the extra scenes, Devil Beneath has a better pace and is more enjoyable of the two versions.” 4 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
