Must Watch: First Trailer for Dowdle Brothers' Thriller Devil
Step aside Buried, it's time for M. Night Shyamalan to try his hand at a stuck-in-one-room thriller. Apple has debuted the first official trailer for Devil, directed by the Dowdle Brothers (of Quarantine). Devil is the first movie in Shyamlan's The Night Chronicles, which is a series of three films where he comes up with the idea and hands it off other filmmakers to complete. The concept in this is that a group of people end up trapped in a elevator learn that the devil is among them. I love the way this starts, and the whole trailer is just Twilight Zone-esque, with some extra intensity and lots more. Definitely a must watch - check it out!

Devil is directed by Minnesota-born filmmakers/brothers Drew and John Eric Dowdle, of The Poughkeepsie Tapes and Quarantine, the remake of [Rec], previously. The screenplay for this was written by Brian Nelson, of both David Slade's Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night previously, and is based on a story conceived by M. Night Shyamalan, who also produced the film. This is the first in Shyamalan's The Night Chronicles series of thrillers. The second film in the series will be called Twelve Strangers. Universal Pictures is bringing Devil to theaters starting on September 17th this fall. What did you think of that trailer? Is it worth seeing?
