A saga of scurvy redneck trash in the Southern Ohio and West Virginia regions, The Devil All The Time (9.16) is the first of two 2020 Netflix features that will explore the low-rent depravity of rural yokels over a time span of a couple of decades (in this instance the late ’40s to mid ’60s).

The second Netflix film in this vein is Ron Howard‘s Hillbilly Elegy, which explores three generations of an Appalachian family, spanning between the ’80s and the aughts.

Directed and co-written by Antonio Campos (Simon Killer, Christine), Devil costars Tom Holland (whom I kind of half-dislike for his Spider-Man bullshit), Bill Skarsgård, Riley Keough, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Haley Bennett, Mia Wasikowska and Robert (“RBatz”) Pattinson.

In his 7.23.11 review of Donald Pollock’s same-titled novel, The Oregonian‘s Jeff Baker said that it “reads as if the love child of Flannery O’Connor and William Faulkner was captured by Cormac McCarthy, kept in a cage out back and forced to consume nothing but onion rings, Oxycontin and Terrence Malick‘s Badlands.”
