Watch the trailer for Devil, from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
With all of the hating that’s been projected towards M. Night Shyamalan, I’ve had to change my excuses for him a few times. After LADY IN THE WATER, I said that his problem was that he insists on putting himself into all of his movies and he can’t act at all, so that makes his movies less. But then THE HAPPENING came out and I had to change it by saying that the problem with his movies is that he just can’t write a great script anymore. But then THE LAST AIRBENDER came out and since all he did was direct it, I’m struggling to find something he’s still good at. Maybe producing? We’ll find out with upcoming thriller DEVIL in which a group of people are trapped in an elevator and the devil is among them. On paper, I like the idea, but in the trailer I’m not sure the intensity of the situation came across properly.
The film stars Caroline Dhavernas, who some of you may remember from the wonderfully quirky but short lived series ‘Wonderfalls’. It also stars Geoffrey Arend, Chris Messina, Bojana Novakovic and Logan Marshall-Green. Drew and John Erick Dowdle are directing. Watch the trailer here.
