RussellWhat happens at the end of The Devil All the Time on Netflix?

Whether you couldn’t make it to the end of The Devil All the Time on Netflix or need a breakdown of that bizarre ending, we’re here for you.

To put it simply, The Devil All the Time on Netflix is not for everybody! There are some movies that audiences will either love or hate, there is just no in-between, and this movie is one of them! When it comes to The Devil All the Time, not everyone will agree.

I take that back, I think we can all agree on the fact that Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson’s performances are incredible. Pattinson’s character’s story is a highlight, and Holland surprised us all with brilliant acting chops we didn’t know he had.

Holland skyrocketed to fame as Spider-Man, so it’s tough to shake off that role and take on others, especially a role so much more complex and different. But Holland makes a flawless transition between the two.

If you are still on the fence about the movie, we go into more detail (without spoilers) HERE.

That said, maybe you started watching the movie and couldn’t finish it because it slow and drags a bit. Or perhaps you aren’t interested in watching and just want spoilers. Whatever the case may be, we are here to provide.

Does Arvin Russell survive? Yes! He beats all the devils surrounding his family and crossing his path and audiences are given a sense of hope that Arvin will one day find happiness. But wow, what a journey!

Arvin goes after Preston Teagarden, the town’s preacher (Pattinson), first and shoots him dead, leaving evidence behind that the preacher was sleeping with a young girl.

Next, Arvin comes across that serial killer couple who go after young men and kill them in the most violent ways. It’s truly horrific. Their story is one of the most shocking. Arvin is sharp, though, and saw danger coming. He successfully shoots them both.

Finally, sheriff Lee Bodecker (Sebastian Stan) is after Arvin and,  as a corrupted cop, wants to murder him since one of the serial killers was his sister. Fortunately, Arvin shoots the sheriff first.

Arvin then hitches a ride and he ponders about the future. We’re happy for Arvin, but after all the violence he has seen and done, we wonder if it’s possible for him to ever be happy.
