New star-studded psychological thriller, The Devil All The Time, is now available to stream on Netflix.

Starring man-of-the-moment Robert Pattinson as well as Tom Holland and a raft of other A-listers, the movie is based on the Donal Ray Pollock novel of the same name.

Described as a ‘finely woven Midwestern gothic tale' set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, it tells the tales of a cast of intriguing characters from the end of World War II through to the 1960s, who are struggling with the psychological damage caused by the war.

Pattinson takes on the role of Preston Teagardin, a not-so-holy preacher with a wandering eye, while the rest of the characters are brought to life by a whole host of familiar faces.

Appearing alongside Pattinson and Holland will be the familiar faces of  Bill Skarsgård, Riley Keough, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Haley Bennett, Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, Harry Melling and Pokey LaFarge.

Clarke and Keough play husband-and-wife serial killer duo Carl and Sandy Henderson who cruise US highways hunting for potential models to ‘photograph and exterminate’ while Holland takes on the role of Arvin Eugene Russell, who refuses to be influenced by the corruption surrounding him.

Skarsgård, who plays Holland’s father Willard Russell in the thriller, spoke to Digital Spy about the film’s ‘complicated’ and unflinching violent streak.

He said: “I was lucky enough to shoot pretty much all of my scenes consecutively… 

“That was very helpful to finding where Willard is in any given moment and how he changes, what he goes through, and when does he become more desperate.

“And in becoming more desperate, more manic and potentially more dangerous for Arvin (Holland).”

Early reviews describe the film as ‘haunting’ and ‘unbothered by comfort’, suggesting it might not be the most easy-going watch, but it will almost certainly be one that will get your spine tingling.

The Devil All The Time is available to stream on Netflix now.
