M. Night's Devil Gets a Date





M. Night's Devil Gets a DateIt's been a few months since last we heard anything about John Erick and Drew Dowdle's (Quarantine, The Poughkeepsie Tapes) latest horror-thriller based on an M. Night Shyamalan story entitled Devil, but finally there's a bit of progress to report.

According to Deadline Hollywood Universal Pictures has slated the film for release on February 11th, 2011. Just in time for Valentine's Day!

Devil is being produced by Shyamalan and Sam Mercer. It is the first pic in a deal between Shyamalan and Media Rights Capital to create Night Chronicles, a banner that will hatch one genre film per year for the next three years.

Chris Messina, Logan Marshall-Green, Jenny O'Hara, Jacob Vargas, Matt Craven, Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Geoffrey Arend, and Caroline Dhavernas are all set to star.

The only thing that we know about the plot as it's heavily under wraps is that Messina plays the lead role of Bowden, a sobered-up homicide detective. Keep it here for more soon.

NEXT STORY

Craven's whole comic relief in movies present a certain cowardice from the man. "Last House" is a gritty disgusting movie and we have to sit through the Keystone Cops trying to get to the victims in time? Lame as hell. At least Shyamalan knows how to work his stories (save for LItW).

In the case of Last House, yes; the Keystone Cops stuff is stupid. Not cowardly, but stupid. On the other hand, the humor he put in Elm Street and Scream works pretty well, in my opinion. As far as stories go, what stories? It's just a series of confusing images and stiff dialogue scenes capped off with a twist ending. That's all Shyamalan knows how to do anymore.

Confusing? You found Signs confusing? A man regains his faith when he defends his family against aliens. The Sixth Sense? A boy is counseled by a man who helps him with his ability to see the dead. Unbreakable? A man comes to grip with his past when he learns he may have super powers?

And stiff dialogue? Are you serious? What about the scene in Signs where Mel Gibson is telling god he hates him? Or in the Sixth Scene where Toni Collette tells that woman to keep her goddamn son away from hers? Come on, now.

He's not David Lynch, you know.

Well, I watched "The Village". I just sat and stared at my tv as the credits rolled thinking "WTF? That's it? Are you f ing kidding me?" However, I gave him another chance with "Lady in the Water". After that, I just shook my head and thought "That's it, I'm done with him". BUT, "The Happening" came out and I was like YES, looks good, I'll give him one last chance. At the end,I thought"You cocksucking motherfucker" "I should have known."

Thats because he couldn't turn out a decent story if he wanted to, with the exseption of The 6th sense, which was a decent movie but could have been much much better...

Is lady in the water worse then The Village?

Oh please, Sixth Sense was excellent and had one of the best surprise endings of all time. And he's become consistently better with every movie.

If I HAD to sit and watch ONE of the two again after watching both,I would watch "The Lady in the Water".That's really the best answer I can give to that question.

I would choose any other M. Night movie over "LAdy in the Water."

M. Night's one of the few good directors out there, so there's plenty of room for the man. "Avatar: The Last Airbender" looks really quite good.

You guys don't think The Last Airbender looks good? I'm looking forward to it myself. I'm really interested in seeing what he does with so much CGI.
