What Are The Rossi Files And What Happens Next?

The Devil Inside
The Devil Inside cost just around $1 million to make, but it had already paid big dividends for Paramount. The movie made about $34 million at the box office in its opening weekend in spite of poor reviews from both critics and audiences.

Just how poor? The Devil Inside received a 7% from critics and a 29% from the audience on RottenTomatoes. On IMDB, the movie averaged 4.4 stars out of 10. The Cinemascore grade for the movie is an F, which is very rare. Regardless of all that, the movie made back it's production cost many times over.

In any case, that's water under the bridge. Let's talk about the Rossi Files. Apparently, when the movie ends, a website address (www.therossifiles.com) is given so the audience can go online to find out more about the movie. Having browsed through the website myself, I can tell you not to bother. There are no secrets to be found nor are there any revelations that will change one's opinion of the movie.

It's a typical website to promote the movie, designed to make it look like what transpired in the movie really happened. What you get is a couple of newspaper clippings and hand-held video clips suggesting that Maria Rossi may have been possessed as early as when her daughter Isabella was still a child.

So what's next? Is there a sequel in the cards for The Devil Inside? It's possible given how cheap the movie is to make and even if the sequel's budget was to double or triple, that still represents a rounding error for Paramount.

There's an intriguing wrinkle to this however. Today, Deadline reported that director William Brent Bell has signed a deal to make The Vatican at Warner Bros., a conspiracy thriller that will use the same found footage style as The Devil Inside. Since the two priests in The Devil Inside repeatedly alluded to a cover-up at the Church, The Vatican may allow Bell to develop that side of the story while leaving The Devil Inside 2 to focus on the aftermath of what happened at the end of the first movie.
