Forgot all the “from the mind of M. Night Shymalan” nonsense and just look at the evidence that’s been presented to date. Based on the promotional material, the trailers and clips produced so far Devil is setting all the right tones. Creepy and atmospheric Devil looks like an above average psychological thriller.
Based on an idea by Shymalan, but fleshed out by 30 Days of Nights writer Brian Nelson and directed by Drew and John Erick Dowdle (who made Quarantine), the movie sees a random group of strangers trapped in a lift where something sinister is only a heartbeat away.
A new clip has arrived today giving another chance to see the occupants of that now famous lift, and again it look good.
The movie is out September 17th, here’s hoping it’s a winner.
