    Release Date: 09/17/10

    From Universal, produced by M. Night Shyamalan. Apparently Universal kept the lid tight with little or no info. No trailer at the moment yet either even though Devil opens wide in September.

    "A group of people trapped in a elevator realize that the devil is among them."

    Looks decent. I'm not getting my hopes up, for one because it's a trailer and two because Shyamalan hasn't directed a decent flick in decades. Reminds me of Carpenter's The Thing meets Event Horizon. Will be a Netflix DVD for sure.

    Wouldn't be the first time the smell of brimstone filled an elevator.

    Cool trailer, but...

    It's like the studios have not realized that Shamalamadingdong is not really a name to get people rushing into the theaters. I mean, that is a major roadblock for me even to consider purchasing a ticket.

    I'm on the fence with this one. Shyamalan hasn't done anything worth a fuck in ten years... trailer is promising, but I won't get my hopes up.

    Isn't Shyamalan producing this? The plot sounds interesting enough for me to want to check it out, although it does sound like something more suited for a short than a feature.

    And after watching the trailer, I can't help but think this is the kind of film that goes nowhere fast ... We'll see. I'll wait for some word of mouth before I see it.

    Correct, he's producing and he came up with the story idea, but that's all. Drew and John Erick Doddle are directing. It's their first directing job, but they do have some horror background as they wrote the [REC] remake Quarantine and The Poughkeepsie Tapes.

    I actually think this one looks interesting and could have potential.

    I can't seem to get excited about anything with Shymalan's name attaced, it's the kiss of death for me.

    So then it's no different than any of his other films?

    Actually I liked the Village even though many people seem to hate it.

    that was the movie that broke shyamalan for me. it was a big wet fuck-you in the face to horror fans everywhere. i have no doubt that Devil will end up the same. much like the village, im guessing the "haunted" elevator is, in reality, only the work of stupid hippies in disguise.

    While I will admit to truly hating Shyamalan at this point. (The Village was the turning point for me as well) I have to admit that I think this does look pretty cool. The fact that he's not directing it makes it even more appealing.

    if the movie ends up ok, this will be exactly the reason why. my expectations are zero, but i'm willing to have that changed by positive reviews.

    Devil - New M. Night Shyamalan

    To those who saw Inception, I take it yall saw this trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's new film (well he's producing) Devil.
    I thought it looked pretty odd and when M. Night's name flashed across the screen, My friend turned to me and said "I wonder what the twist ending is...?"
    I've read that a lot theatre audiences gave out a collective groan when his name came on screen, now my theatre didn't do that, but did yours?

    It looks pretty strange to me and I didn't know what to think.
    What did yall think?
