Bedeviled The Vang Brothers

Franck Khalfoun was ahead of the curve with his film I-LIVED. Like I said yesterday when writing about the dating app thriller GASP and the supernatural video game app movie /reddoor, it looks like apps could be the next big source of horror. As soon as my app movie article was posted, the trailer for another app-based horror film came online to prove my point – apps aren't only taking over the world, they're going to try to take over genre movies as well.

The trailer is for a film called BEDEVILED, which has been written and directed by The Vang Brothers. With a cast that includes Saxon Sharbino, Brandon Soo Hoo, Kate Orsini, Jordan Essoe, Carson Boatman, Victory Van Tuyl, Bonnie Morgan, Alexis G. Zall, Mitchell Edwards, Robyn Cohen, Matty Finochio, and Angelina Armani, this "supernatural thriller for the digital generation" tells the following story:

A group of friends download a Siri-like “App” which, at first, seems like a harmless way to get directions or a restaurant recommendation. But the sinister nature of the App soon reveals itself. The App not only knows each person’s deepest, darkest fears, but is able to manifest these fears into the real world to literally scare the kids to death.

One girl, Alice (Sharbino), survives, but what happens if the App goes viral? BEDEVILED is a terrifying tale of technological fiction which someday may become our reality.

See that last line? This film is a warning about a possible future, folks. Be careful out there in app land.
