Another fan was in agreement, writing: "How do film makers get money for movies like #TheDevilBelow? When the script sounds like it was written by a child? Like. Really."

A third added: "#TheDevilBelow is easily the worst movie so far this year. Just horrible!" Ouch!

However, others were impressed by the movie, which was released earlier this year. One positive response from a fan read: "Ok that was a good movie it reminded me of Descent when those women went into that cave and all those creatures was in the depths like it was hell #TheDevilBelow."

Another wrote: "Watched this on @netflix last night wow what a movie, in fact one of the best movies I've seen on there for ages - it's a sort of base under siege thing including nods to Alien - The Quiet Place - loads of John Carpenter! #TheDevilBelow check it out!!" As a third agreed, adding: "This one is interesting so far! #TheDevilBelow."

The Devil Below stars Alicia Sanz, Will Patton and Jonathan Sadowski, as well as X-Men and Narcos star Adan Canto.
