South Of Hell Is Cheaply Created
28 November 2015 | by jegd-847-631407See all my reviews

It's fairly rare I anticipate a film or a series that perfectly fails in all areas. You gather together a recognizable producer (Jason Blum), director (Eli Roth) and lead star (Mena Suvari) solely on a WEtv budget and you get something no one cared about creating. The shame in this is that the plot device has a fairly decent idea; A possessed woman that uses her inner demon powers to hunt, destroy/exorcise other demons. Sure it's basically recycled material, but I had assumed the South Carolina backdrop would have added a nice touch.

"CHEAP" is the easiest word for this series. It feels cheap right out of the gate with the poor editing cuts, bland voice-over and unremarkable dialogue. You present a southern dialect and yet there isn't a single success in faking the easiest accent in the US. I've heard Northerners confuse southern pronunciations with one another; South Carolina & a thick Cajun Louisiana are distinct to the common ear, but Mena Suvari refused any attempt at authenticity. Her character sounds like she's from Rhode Island. That's just lazy.

You could hope that the series would be another "so bad it's good" premise. Maybe inject a little humor into this hopeless flush down the genre toilet, but the whole series was dumped out all-at-once on Black Friday. It forced me to consider, "WEtv must have wanted to get rid of this as quickly as possible." ... as no second season is expected.
