Exclusive Interview: The Devil Inside's William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman Talk Controversial Endings, Sequel Potential and Upcoming Projects
It pretty much goes without saying that The Devil Inside's co-writer/director William Brent Bell and co-writer/producer Matthew Peterman are having one hell of a week. After seeing their independently made film open to a staggering $33.7 million, the pair have witnessed some passionate debates heat up online surrounding it, and they've also been announced as attached to two other upcoming horror projects. Of course we have the scoop on it all!
Hey, kids! It's time to fuel your disdain by bringing you some newly released clips for Paramount's The Devil Inside! Incidentally I'm appearing daily at the Del Mar Rubio's restaurant from 5-6 pm in San Diego in case you wanna show up and blame me for everything else that's gone wrong in your life because I'm one of six people in the world that was entertained by this flick. Be warned, though... if you spit at me, you're likely to end up having a really bad day!
In my ten years covering the genre, I don't think I've ever seen a harsher backlash toward one film as I have with Paramount Insurge's The Devil Inside. Despite the jeering, spitting, throwing of garbage, and my own public text-based crucifixion for daring to think it was pretty good, the film managed to pull in $34.5M during its opening weekend. Given its success, a sequel is a no-brainer, right? Maybe, maybe not.
The wait is nearly over. Pretty soon you'll be able to sink your teeth into the unrated and extended cut of Paranormal Activity 3, and we have the first look at what's new and spooky right here waiting for you.
Alrighty then! Get out your planners, kids. It's time to change a couple of things around. Don't forget to use pencil instead of pen because you just never know. Ready? Good! Let's begin.
It's almost time, kids! We're just weeks away from the extended cut of Paranormal Activity 3 hitting Blu-ray and DVD, and the big question on everyone's mind is: What's going to be different? Anyone familiar with last October's ad campaign knows that there was footage in the TV spots and trailers that did not make it into the theatrical cut so guess what? We're ready to lift the veil on which excised bit of footage is definitely included in the new unrated version!
After being in a slump for most of 2011, the horror genre roared back to life with The Devil Inside’s surprising $34.5 million box office take thus far. The bad news for Paramount, however, is that their hit has been reportedly getting booed off screens all over the country, has received the ultra-rare “F” Cinemascore, and has pretty much been universally reviled by everyone that doesn’t go by the moniker “Uncle Creepy”.
If I have any complaints about movie-going in general, it's the nearly all of the spectacle is gone. In the days of the great William Castle (who pretty much created viral marketing), there would be all manner of gimmicks associated with his films from seat buzzers to insurance policies to flying skeletons sailing over the crowd. What a fun time to have been a fan! As a tip of the hat to those golden days of cinema, Paramount had a little surprise in store for those who attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Devil Inside.
Paramount's The Devil Inside has horror fans divided. Some loved it, some liked it, and some hate it on a level that's borderline irrational. We fell into the liked it category, and to further help you make your decision about whether or not to go see it this weekend, we have another new clip and a way for you to continue the demonic journey of Maria Rossi!
Last night Dread Central was on hand at the Regal 14 Theaters in Los Angeles for the premiere celebration of Paramount Pictures' latest genre effort, The Devil Inside, which is set to terrify audiences everywhere today.
Here at Dread Central we pride ourselves on only giving you rock solid news on the Paranormal Activity franchise as rumors and other silly things have a strange habit of popping up around it. That being said, in terms of the director(s) for Paranormal Activity 4...
Ever been curious about what goes on inside an exorcism school? Well then, this new clip from The Devil Inside should be right up your alley. Read on to watch a group taking courses at The Vatican School for Exorcism in Rome.
The trailer for Paramount's The Devil Inside has sent a collective shiver down the spines of many a horror fan since it debuted in October, and we've all been hoping that the film itself delivers the kind of scares promised by the trailer. Our verdict is in. Read on for the first review of the film along with a pretty intense "reactions" video from the first few screenings.
