New Poster For Shyamalan's Devil
The M. Night-produced, lift-set horror

04 August 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

Lifts* are pretty bad - slow, unreliable, sometimes a bit overcrowded and smelly. Lifts that are stuck are even worse - slower, smellier and more overcrowded by the minute as the walls close in. But at least you don't usually have Satan in there with you, putting you ahead of the cast of upcoming horror Devil - for which we have an exclusive new poster below.

Rather stylish, eh? The film comes from the twisted mind of M. Night Shyamalan, who wrote the story on which Brian Nelson's screenplay is based. It's directed by Quarantine director John Erick Dowdle, and stars a cast comprised mostly of people you've never heard of and those you recognise from that thing on TV, whadyacallit, on the top of my tongue. Which, in horror movies, can be an advantage because it's harder to figure out who to trust.

Devil is out on September 17, at the very beginning of the autumn horror season. In the meantime, may we recommend taking the stairs? Better for your heart on any number of levels.

*Or "elevators" for our American brethren.

RE: carpenter is king long live the king
L: hi charlie I wish people would actually watch his entire ouvre before they make statements about him that don't hold true, because they've ussualy heard some other equally ill informed phillistine say the same. ike what? More

RE: The John Carpenter Parallel.........
L: boredbluekoala Shyamalan's movies, like Carpenter's, started out brilliantly. But after a brief flirtation with success both have lost relevance and quickly became hacks for hire. They were great while they lasted and will be remembered for the classics. rm, I think that's stretching things just a wee bit. Carpenter had way more home runs than Shyamalan.  Aside from the tv movies he did in between, he did Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, The Fog, Escape From New York and More

RE: The John Carpenter Parallel.........
I see what you're saying and I don't massively disagree, but I think you're being overly generous. The Sixth Sense will be remembered because it received such huge attention. His other films (even the kinda OK Signs) are a mixture of forgetable and Oh-My-God-Awful. I think that such unbelievably bad and arrogant film-making (Lady in the Water anyone?) has not only damaged Shyamalan's reputation, but also the reputation of The Sixth Sense. Let me put it this way. Even with all of More

RE: what an arse
L: richithekiller The Night Chronicles? Pretentious much? Is there no one around to tell this guy how annoying and talentless he's become. sp; Given the subject matter, don't you think it's just possible that it refers to that period after sunset rather than a name check? As for your last question, I thought that was what the internet was for - once you've viewed enough porn of course! More

RE: M Night, please don't let us down again!
The Village wasn't the start of the decline, it was Lady in The Water, a film that didn't seem to have a story at all despite being a story about stories (from what I remember). He's made four fantastic films that I greatly admire, it's painful that Lady in The Water and The Happening exist. The Last Airbender is now the first M Night Shyamalan film I haven't seen on the big screen. More

M Night, please don't let us down again!
Has ever a director plunged so much in public affection as Shyamalan?  After a trio of great movies (Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and, yes, Signs), we should have been wary that The Village was the start of the decline.  But nothing could have prepared us for just how quick and far that decline would come, with the unholy trinity of movies that were The Happening, Lady In The Water and The Last Airbender.   Every time the pitch for the latest movie is released, I get a little exc More
