We see dead people

Last night, we went to the movies, and the small crowd in the theater watched a really good trailer. People trapped in an elevator. Lights out. A shriek. Lights on. Someone’s been wounded. A confrontation. A flash. The elevator jerks. A sudden noise. Cool. The trailer completely shut off the pre-show banter around us.

Then a title screen came up, simple white lettering on a black background: “From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan.” And the entire audience let out a soft “Oooh” of disappointment … followed by a loud laugh at our collective response.

Mr. Shyamalan, your focus group results are in.

(The movie is Devil and you can see the trailer here.)

  1. I saw the trailer too, just before settling in for Scott Pilgrim with our teenage son. Elevators are a “leap” of faith, all those strangers, cramped quarters, a monster, etc.

    Don’t be hatin’. M. Night is writer-producer, Brothers Dowdle directing. I’ll give the pic a “wait and see.”

  2. I know. But M. Night is a TERRIBLE writer. He’s actually quite a good director. They’ve got his talent inverted on this.

  3. I must admit I’m responsible for some of those groans.

    The truth is, we’re just protesting it because James Franco isn’t in it.
