While M. Night Shyamalan is getting bashed for his work on The Last Airbender, he’s actually staying pretty close to his roots with another project called The Night Chronicles, a series of films that he helped get started, and a few that he even created, while also letting other filmmakers have a crack at it.
The first in the lineup is Devil, which is about a group of strangers that get stuck in an elevator and one of them “is not what they seem.” Sure, the film is a little bit like a Tales From the Crypt episode, but that’s not a problem since there hasn’t really been a good horror anthology in a long time.
Devil is filled with relative unknowns, with a few C-listers. Geoffrey Arend may be the most recognizable face, and you may know him best as Christina Hendrick’s husband. Also along for the ride are Chris Messina, Caroline Dhavernas, and Bokeem Woodbine.
Directed by the team that brought you Quarantine, you can expect to see plenty of technology-based scares in the film, and the trailer does it some justice.
Check it out after the jump. Catch M. Night Shyamalan’s Devil in theaters on September 17th.
