The Devil Conspiracy is a 2022 Czech fantasy horror film in which a cabal steals the Shroud of Turin for evil purposes.

The Czech Anglo Productions movie stars Alice Orr-Ewing, Joe Doyle, Eveline Hall, Peter Mensah, Joe Anderson, Brian Caspe and James Faulkner.


Plot synopsis:
A biotech company creating a technique to clone the greatest minds and figures from history. However, the company is run by a cabal of Satanists whose ultimate goal is to resurrect Lucifer himself.


They plan to do this by offering up Jesus once they’ve cloned him from a sample of his DNA found on his shroud. Let the religious battles ensue…



“It wouldn’t be a stretch to call The Devil Conspiracy a faith-based horror movie […] All I know for sure is that the film entertained me greatly with its unbridled lunacy. I’ve worn out my thesaurus finding different words for “crazy” to use in this review. That tells you something. Anyone with even a moderate interest in gonzo cinema needs to get The Devil Conspiracy on their eyeballs as soon as possible.” 3 out of 4, The Aisle Seat

The Devil Conspiracy is hurt most by its distinct lack of personality. Neither the lifeless characters nor rigid dialogue exchanges personify much life into what feels like a hollow shell of a screenplay. While Frankowski tries to elevate the material with glimmers of crowd-pleasing entertainment, the film’s amusements are inevitably constricted by a story that plods along without extracting genuine interest from viewers.” Battle Royale with Cheese

The Devil Conspiracy tries to shock and repulse, but it eventually falls apart, becoming noisy instead of insane, especially during the second half of the film. There’s a Big Idea sloshing around Alan’s mind, but it’s not one that’s meant for a cinematic treatment, with The Devil Conspiracy ultimately a tiring viewing experience, failing to hide all the silliness that piles up in the picture.”

“This horror/thriller starts with a preposterous idea and runs with it full-steam ahead. The Devil Conspiracy takes itself dead seriously and is burdened with poor filmmaking that’s often too dark or too noisy. The result is an irritating mess. The production values are decent, with clearly professional design elements and performances, but somehow the movie feels like a captainless ship.” Common Sense Media

“The film might sound like it would be right at home on Pureflix, the Christian streaming network, but I can say definitively, The Devil Conspiracy is much more fun and exciting than the stuff Pureflix has released. A fun cast, a quick pace, keeps The Devil Conspiracy from ever being boring and because of that, I can give a passing recommendation to The Devil Conspiracy.” Geeks

“While the action is stellar, the story is intriguing enough that it could have benefited from a more practical approach, highlighting the possible implications of meddling with celestial powers and the ramifications that would surely follow. As it stands, The Devil Conspiracy makes for a thrilling and entertaining distraction.” 3.5 out of 5, The Irish Film Critic

“It is basically Paradise Lost mixed with Jurassic Park, on an angel dust bender. This is the most over-the-top, deranged horror film to get a professional release since Will Klipstine’s The Harbinger, but that film somehow comes together at the end, whereas Devil Conspiracy undermines a lot of its wacky goodwill with a spirit-crushing seen-it-a-million-times-before ending, obviously intended to set up a sequel.” J.B. Spins

“Frankowski’s vision for this conspiracy-laden world of an eternal religious struggle is let down by some dreary cinematography and lackluster effects (A demon fetus on a sonogram screen is especially cheap), but the very fact one could call this a “vision” of any kind says something about the effort). There’s no denying that The Devil Conspiracy is a mess. The movie is so patently, somewhat-knowingly ridiculous, though, that it’s difficult to ignore, hate, or not be a little admiring of the chaos.” Mark Reviews Movies

“The CGI and practical effects are among the only strengths of The Devil Conspiracy. They’re quite impressive for a lower-than-Hollywood-budget film. Beyond that, though, there’s nothing to write home about. The scenes with Satan in Hell are poorly shot and lit, making it hard to see what’s going on. Then there’s the acting which ranges from wooden to hammy…”  The NYC Movie Guru

” …I was almost willing to forgive The Devil Conspiracy its numerous artistic trespasses—like its clunky action and clunkier performances—because of the absolute absurdity of it all. However, towards the film’s final third, The Devil Conspiracy starts reining in the craziness and becomes more familiar and repetitive, right when it should be ramping up to even madder heights.”
