Could that person just be the devil? The trailer, which adopts the more-is-more approach when it comes to sharing narrative information, seems to say so. Devil, adapted from a story by M. Night Shyamalan and directed by John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine), tells the story of a group of people trapped in an office building elevator. Using some disorienting upside-down arial shots, the film looks promising. Could this be M. Night Shyamalan’s redeeming project following the critical slaughter of The Last Airbender? The film premieres in theaters September 17.
