In Devil (2010), Why can't Anthony "Tony" Janekowski close the eyes of the dead body?

enter image description here

Every time he tries to close them they're opening back on their own.

    I haven't seen the movie, but closing a corpse's eyes is generally symbolic of laying their soul to rest. I'm guessing the fact that the eyes keep opening is meant to suggest that the soul cannot rest peacefully. – Steve-O Feb 2 '17 at 14:04

    I had my cat put down (she had cancer and was very sick). The vet injected her and she passed with her eyes open. I tried to close them and they would not close. Same as here. My guess is something in the lid muscles not relaxing immediately. – JonSG Feb 2 '17 at 15:19

My guess is that her eyes wouldn't close because

at the end it is revealed that she is the devil, and the one murdering everyone.

Plus it just looks creepy.
