Review: Devil

Dir. John Erick Dowdle
Year: 2010
Aus Rating: M
Running Time: 80mins

M. Night Shyamalan is a man whose next film used to elicit gasps of excitement, and now it’s laughs of mockery. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse than Mark Wahlberg having a therapy session with a tree in The Happening, he turns around and makes The Last Airbender and he’s now handing over the reins of his stories to other filmmakers – in this case writer Brian Nelson and director John Erick Dowdle. Devil is the first in a series of “Night Chronicles” and when they’re all complete they will make a nice DVD box set, but you should perhaps reconsider planting your hard-earned cash over to the box office.
