Recently released and distributed to Redbox kiosks around the United States, "Back From Hell" or it's original name, "Ex Inferis" is now available for viewers to waste their time and money on.
The Italian, mockumentary/lost footage type of film has a few interesting conversations, a thrill or two and a beautiful location, but nothing that will separate this film from the myriad of other movies of this genre that have flooded the industry as of late.
Based around a group of friends that are spending four days in an abandoned monastery, a chain of paranormal events unfold that eventually lead to necessary exorcism. Some of the explanations from the resident priest were impossible to understand, which were crucial to the story and of course missed.
The lack of subtitles was an absolute fail. I would have much rather the actors and actresses speak their native tongue of Italian and read subtitles than to try and figure out the most important dialogue of the film. However NO SUBTITLES whatsoever was an aggravation that no viewer should have to face.
Basically, stay away from this film and know that nothing remotely cool happens in this film as it is shown on the poster and cover art. No woman walks on the ceiling or upside down. As a matter of fact, only one woman was possessed in the movie and she was pregnant and was outdoors, so I claim false advertising! I guess you can't judge a film by it's cover, just like books.
