The Devil’s Hand is an oft times trite supernatural-horror film with some so-so acting from actors I normally love watching including Rufus Sewell and Colm Meaney. It’s easy to see why this was a quick dump job by Lionsgate and offers no bonus material while the video/audio transfers are serviceable enough, however.

PLOT SUMMARY

In the small, devout village of New Bethlehem, six girls are born on the sixth day of the sixth month, setting in motion an ancient prophecy–on their 18th birthday, one of the girls will become the Devil’s Hand. As the day nears, the young women begin to disappear. Threatened by the town’s fiery religious leader (COLM MEANEY), the remaining girls, Mary and Ruth, join with Mary’s father (RUFUS SEWELL) to uncover the chilling truth behind the evil that grips New Bethlehem.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5

This release comes with a matted slip cover and inside is a redemption code for the UltraViolet Digital Copy. Outside of the Theatrical Trailer, no features have been included.

VIDEO – 4.0/5 | AUDIO – 3.5/5

The film is presented with an anamorphic widescreen (2.40 AR) transfer which looks pretty good with stark black levels for the darker scenes and decent colors for those daytime shots.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is mixed where the (hokey) score and subwoofer kicks in well enough but dialogue tends to be flat and tops out at times. It’s a fine track that is adequate for a film of this type.

OVERALL – 2.25/5

Overall, The Devil’s Hand is an oft times trite supernatural-horror film with some so-so acting from actors I normally love watching including Rufus Sewell and Colm Meaney. It’s easy to see why this was a quick dump job by Lionsgate and offers no bonus material while the video/audio transfers are serviceable enough, however.
