The Devil Inside – 2012 Movie Trailer

 

In general I don’t enjoy horror films. Simply because they rarely frighten me. I blame that on The Exorcist, which affected me profoundly.

To be blunt… it scared the living crap out of me.

It terrified me to the point where other horror films just pale in comparison. Ever since I watched The Exorcist as a child, I’ve been waiting for a film to effect me in the same way. Lots of films have tried to duplicate the terror of The Exorcist. Few even remotely approach it for me. It’s almost as if the filmmakers caught lightening in a bottle. The latest attempt to try to capture the magic of that film is The Devil Inside from Paramount Pictures. (Not to be confused with the video game.) Besides being just generally creepy overall, the plot of The Devil Inside seems to mix science with faith. It’s something that The Exorcist did so well. When science fails where else is there to turn to but faith?

I’m still not completely sold that the film will be comprable to The Exorcist. The invisible hard push from an unseen entity, (featured in the trailer) seems to be a horror film staple now. (We know it’s stunt wires filmmakers, please think of something else.) The clever use of a contortionist is interesting though. I’m also not crazy about yet ANOTHER  fake documentary style film. But this movie does look creepy and disturbing and Paramount is poised to make it a franchise and  are willing to throw some serious marketing support behind the film.

Could this be the next great horror film franchise?

The Devil Inside stars Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quaterman, Evan Helmuth, Suzan Crowley, William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman. The Devil Inside is directed by William Brent Bell. The film is scheduled for release January 6, 2012.
