Last week, we announced that I Trapped the Devil will be arriving in select theaters and VOD platforms beginning April 26th via IFC Midnight. Now, we have a trailer for the film and it looks like psychological horror of the highest magnitude! Does a seemingly ordinary man actually have Satan locked away in his basement? One thing’s for certain: This is a Christmas no one will ever forget!
Give the trailer a spin at the top of the article and read the synopsis below.
Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace and joyful family reunions. But when Matt (AJ Bowen) and his wife Karen (Susan Burke) show up unannounced at the home of his estranged brother Steve (Scott Poythress) to celebrate the holidays, they are instead greeted with a horrifying surprise: trapped in the basement is a man. But not just any man. Steve believes that his hostage is none other than the devil himself. As shock and skepticism turn to fear and paranoia, Matt and Karen find themselves facing a terrifying quandary: is Steve dangerously unhinged? Or could the mysterious stranger really be evil incarnate? Either way, the stage is set for a true Christmas from hell.
I Trapped the Devil is the debut feature film by writer/director Josh Lobo; the film stars Chris Sullivan, Jocelin Donahue, and AJ Bowen.
