Devil in Ohio’ Is a Buckeye State Schlockfest Starring Emily Deschanel: TV Review1

As we strive for something greater, the lessons of the fire," a voice cries as pictures of swooping crows and blood spilling from a rose's prickly stem fill the screen.

This theme tune has a self-conscious silliness about it that, in a way, is finally merited by the series it introduces.

"Devil in Ohio" on Netflix isn't so good that its mistakes end up making sense, but it's so schlockily unafraid of both its excesses and its flaws that it feels hard to criticise.

Emily Deschanel plays Suzanne, a psychiatrist with the especially difficult new patient Mae in this movie.

Naturally, Suzanne brings her home, and naturally, Suzanne has three daughters (played by Xaria Dotson, Alisha Newton, and Naomi Tan), from whom Mae can quickly gain influence or learn how high school life works.

The initial question is whispered rather than spoken: "What happened to Mae in her upbringing, and what painful lessons she learned from her misfortunes?"
