Compelling as troubling. Congratulations to everyone on making such a powerful film. The cast were outstanding and setting familial bias aside, special plaudits to Michael Banks Repeta as young Arvin and Kristin Griffith as Emma - both brilliant. And on behalf of the whole cast, Antonio Campos, take a bow. Bravo,” Holland’s dad replied. You can view the post below:

"In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters — an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) — converge around young Arvin Russell (Tom Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos’ THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted."
