New Devil poster shows evil lurking in the elevator

08.04.2010

People may groan when his name appears in trailers now, but M. Night Shyamalan's DEVIL might actually have a chance at not sucking, due to the fact that someone else is taking over directing and screenplay duties for him.

The concept of being stuck in an elevator with something evil is inherently pretty scary, even if one of those guys is the “snozberries taste like snozberries” guy from SUPER TROOPERS.

Empire has debuted a new poster from the film that I have to admit is damn cool looking. It’s a very subtle way of including the anti-christ devil cross, and hopefully the film is as smart as this poster. I’m all for Shyamalan’s original concepts, but it’s just the script that always makes them fall apart. Hopefully someone else can do good work with his story here.

I’m excited to watch this Shyamalan movie! Have you guys seen this trailer? [link] Devil is the first film from Shyamalan’s ‘the night chronicles’ and I'm pretty curious.

An upside down cross has no satanic meaning to it. In fact, St. Peter asked to be crucified upside down because he felt unworthy to die the same way Jesus did. The Pope even has it on his thrown. Way to be stupid Shyamalan!

dont be fooled, this movie will suck.

i dont even want M Night to make an Unbreakable sequel anymore, he will probably fuck that up too.

I'm sold, the same guys who directed Quarantine directed this movie. They definitely know how to create a sense of claustrophobia and tension with small budgets

Good poster. Liked the trailer, and love B-Horror movies like this one seems to be. For the extra tidbit, good for him.

Solid poster. They really got ditch Shyamalan's name though. I'll see it either way but I'd like to see this film succeed and the more his name pops up, it seems the less it will appeal to a mass audience.

Is that fair, since this film was conceived as a way to showcase Night's ideas through a different writer and director? Furthermore, he did produce and create the story, and this film wouldn't even exist without his involvement. I agree that the quality of his films have declined perpetually, but he did play a large role in this film. It should at least be mentioned (if only as a warning).

With some chicks, personality goes a long way. Try not being a judgmental douche for a while, & maybe you'll get lucky too.

The twist is that they're not on an elevator, but on a spaceship. And when that spaceship gets off on "level 6," they arrive on a strange planet where the aliens are actually village elders wearing costumes. And one of those village elders is Mel Gibson.

I like most of what M. Night has done over time, minus only 1-2 films, thus far. This looks really interesting to me.

I like the snozzberries guy . . .

. . . now I like him even more. I'm cautiously optimistic about this movie w/ M.Night's involvement. The premise along w/ the fact he's not DIRECTING keep my hopes up a bit. He wasn't involved in writing the script was he???

He has a srory credit. Brian Nelson, writer of Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night, wrote the script.

M. Night's billing gets a bit smaller everytime.

The poster looks decent enough, but I don't know if that's enough of an aid to get me to see this, knowing Shyamalan's hands have been all over this project.

That's a pretty fine poster.

The film, however, looks like it will probably free-fall straight to the bottom of the elevator shaft.

The problem with today's movie posters

They're too clean, steril and flat out boring. There's no energy behind it. Looks better painted also, like past movie posters.

Could be interesting

This could be interesting, haven't seen any trailers yet so I am holding off judgment. However to Paul: The upside down cross is not actually an evil symbol or the an "anti-christ devil cross". THe Apostle Peter was crucified on an upside down cross b/c he didn't feel like he was worthy enough to die the same way as Jesus Christ.
