The Devil in Me introduces a group of film makers who venture to a modern-day replica of serial killer H.H. Holmes’ ‘Murder Castle’. The Oscar nominee, Jessie Buckley is featured as one of the main characters.

The Devil in Me is the fourth game in the series of The Dark Pictures Anthology developed by Supermassive Games and published by Bandai Namco . It is announced as the Season One finale of the iconic series. 

The story follows the same formula as the previous Dark Pictures Anthology games, Little Hope , House of Ashes, and Man of Medan , followed: A group of adventurers in an unknown location, not realizing how close to death they really are and the player being presented with difficult, game-changing choices.

A group of documentary filmmakers take a trip to the modern-day replica of serial killer H.H. Holmes ‘Murder Castle’ upon receiving an invitation through a call.

They found it to be an opportunity that was too good to pass up and could just be the thing they needed to come out on top and become the bigshot moviemakers they've always wanted to be.

The hotel is the perfect set for their documentary, but things aren’t quite as they seem. As the crew explored the castle, it became pretty apparent that everything did sound too good to be true and that they’re not only being watched but also toyed with and manipulated.

Soon they realize that their lives are in grave danger and that their documentary has just turned into a horror.
