What is it about? Devil in Ohio

Netflix’s Devil in Ohio will be based on the 2017 novel of the same name by author Daria Polatin. It’s based on a true story and Polatin originally wrote a version of it as a TV pilot, so this limited series kind of comes full circle. Polatin commented on this in an interview with Book room reviews

I was interested in writing about what happens to people when they’ve been in isolated communities, and wrote a TV pilot about a cult. When I heard the true story of a teenage girl who escaped from a satanic cult and moved in with her psychiatrist’s family, I had to tell. A novel seemed like an exciting way to write that story, and the true events became the inspiration for Mae, Jules and the Mathis family. Devil in Ohio explores the timeless struggle between good and evil, and the strength it takes to overcome the adversity of your past.

Here is the summary of the story for Devil in Ohio as seen on Polatin’s official website

When fifteen-year-old Jules Mathis comes home from school to find a strange girl in her kitchen, her psychiatrist mother reveals that Mae is one of her patients in the hospital and will be staying with their family for a few days. But soon Mae is wearing Jules’ clothes, sleeping in her bedroom, pushing her out of her position on the school paper and flirting with Jules’ crush. And Mae has no intention of leaving.

Then things get weird. Jules enters on a half-dressed Mae, startled to see: a pentagram carved into Mae’s back. Jules gathers clues and discovers that Mae is a survivor of the strange cult embedded in a nearby town. And the cult is doing everything they can to get Mae back.

When asked about the details of the origin of the story, Polatin replied:

The book is based on a true story, the background of which I will keep a secret, but much of what happens in the book actually happened. I took artistic freedom to fill in the blanks and flesh out the story in a way that worked for a book.
