Greetings, and a look at Devil (2010)

Hello, fellow horror fans and WildClaw Blood Radio readers! My name is Anna, and I'll be contributing to this here blog with a hodgepodge of horror-related links, news, and musings, all with a touch of demented humor. So here goes:

The brothers Dowdle (of Quarantine and The Poughkeepsie Tapes fame) are bringing us a new horror film, based on a story by M. Night Shyamalan. Check out the trailer for Devil below:



Honest opinion: Based on the trailer alone, this movie looks mediocre at best. I do realize that it isn't fair to judge a film on its previews, but man, there is nothing here that looks tantalizing. And could it be that trailers these days do little to hide a film's secrets? I bet any of you twenty bones that I can guess who the devil is from watching the trailer again.

Also, and it pains me to say it, but M. Night Shyamalan hasn't been bringing the heat for a while now. His last film, ironically titled The Happening, in which nothing happened, did little to arouse filmgoers in any regard. So, we shall see if the Devil's in the details on this one, or if M. Night should be exorcised from Hollywood for good.

EDIT: My good friend Renee Knipe rightfully pointed out to me that M. Night's last film was not The Happening, but The Last Airbender, based on the popular animated series of similar name. This can only serve as proof that M. Night really isn't bringing the heat when I can't even remember the actual last film he did.
