Nefarious: Speak of the Devil
by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman
It’s not often that Prophecy Watchers would ever recommend an R-rated movie. But this one is different. Gary Stearman recommended this film to me (Bob) so Mondo and I along with our video editor went to see it recently. My normal movie experience is to be sound asleep 5 or 10 minutes into the movie, only to be awakened by my wife’s elbow to the ribs to stop my snoring. Not this time. From start to finish I was RIVETED. I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen for all 98 minutes. The dialogue between the demon on death row and the unbelieving psychiatrist was Oscar-worthy. Just two men having a conversation, but oh what an eye opening conversation it was.
Jesus is known as “The Carpenter” and Lucifer becomes “My Master.” The hatred Lucifer has for God is crystal clear and soon it becomes obvious to the psychiatrist that this demon has been watching him from afar for a long, long time, knowing intimate details about his life. What starts out as a laborious “waste-of-my-time” interview quickly veers off into the supernatural. All three of us left the theater in silence, not knowing what to say. Every believer should watch this film. It teaches us that from a young age Satan and his cohorts are looking for our weak spots and finding ways to exploit them. It’s convicting. It’s biblical. It should open many eyes to the spiritual battle we all face with an invisible enemy every day. This is real life stuff.
The reason for the R rating? There’s an electrocution scene at the end of the movie that is gross and disturbing. Of course I’ve seen worse on network TV and its a necessary part of the film. I’ve read a few comments online about one of the filmmakers being Catholic. That has nothing to do with this film. Don’t let the naysayers scare you away. No profanity … nothing spiritually questionable … take my word for it … this film will change your life. I’ve given aw
Here’s the back cover description of the film.
In the battle between good and evil, we’re all participants, willing or not.
On the day of his scheduled execution, a convicted serial killer gets a last-minute court-ordered psychiatric evaluation. The killer surprises the psychiatrist with his claim that instead of trying to avoid his fate, he is a demon who wants the execution to go forward … and further claims that before their brief time together is over, the doctor will have committed three murders of his own.
