Robert Pattinson's New Netflix Thriller Will Have You Utterly Hooked
Taking inspiration from the Donal Ray Pollock novel of the same name, The Devil All the Time is described as a "finely woven Midwestern gothic tale" set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia.
The thriller is currently scheduled to hit Netflix in September 2020, though the streaming service stresses the date is still to be confirmed - so, stay tuned for more updates.
Directed by Antonio Campos, and based on a screenplay adaptation of Pollock's novel written by Antonio and Paulo Campos, the movie stretches from the end of World War II up to the 1960s.
The cast of characters who reside in Knockemstiff, Ohio and its surrounding backwoods are as bizarre as they are sinister, all of them suffering from the psychological damages of war.
Robert Pattinson plays Preston Teagardin, an unholy preacher who is new to the town, and a nephew of the dedicated Reverend Sykes. Preston is nothing like his uncle - and also has a wandering eye.

There's also tormented veteran Willard Russell (Bill Skarsgård) unable to save his wife, Charlotte, from cancer, no matter how hard he prays.
There's twisted couple Carl and Sandy Henderson (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), a husband-and-wife serial killer duo, who cruise America's highways on the hunt for potential models to "photograph and exterminate".
Meanwhile, spider-handling preacher Roy and his guitar-playing cripple Theodore are on the run from the law.
At the centre of it all is Arvin Eugene Russell (played by Tom Holland), son of Willard and Charlotte, who grows up refusing to be corrupted by an unjust world.
Jake Gyllenhaal is a big influential on the film, serving as exec producer, alongside Riva Marker, Gretchen McGowan, Randall Poster, and Max Born.
Anyone else very ready to see R Patz as a less-than-holy preacher? September can't come soon enough!
