Directed by Antonio Campos, ‘The Devil All The Time’ has been released. The story has not received much praise but the star cast makes it tolerable. The plot of the movie is based in an alternative universe where Spider-Man, Winter Soldier, and Batman are trying to fight within themselves and the darkness inside them.
They meet up at one point and the story moves forward. Starring Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Robert Pattinson, Riley Keough, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Haley Bennett, Eliza Scanlen, and Mia Wasikowska, the movie helps them to shed their roles as heroes. For example, Watson playing Samantha Button in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ helped her to get out of her character of Hermione from the audience’s eyes. The same applies to all the actors in this movie.
What is Netflix’s new ‘The Devil All The Time’ based on?

The movie follows the same plot set during the time period of World War II and the Vietnam War.
The first half of the movie talked about extreme acts of violence. The characters in the movie grow up and try to settle in to adjust their lives and survive. It talks about how religion and violence are deeply connected with each other. Even though not many found the story intriguing, the performances of all the actors are brilliant.
