M. Night Shyamalan-produced Devil gets a trailer.

Devil is the first film from 'the Night Chronicles', which will hopefully be an ongoing series of M. Night Shyamalan-produced horror pictures. This is frankly just the sort of thing M. Night Shyamalan should be doing with his free time. Say what you will about his output in the latter half of the decade, but he has worthwhile ideas and tells stories worth telling. So, if he's not going to go full-Hitchcock and do a weekly TV series, why not use his name to give other filmmakers a boost and the chance to make an M. Night Shyamalan movie better than M. Night himself? It's not exactly Stephen King selling the movie rights to his short stories for $1, but it's worth celebrating. As for the preview itself, it looks like a sharp and satisfying little horror tale. And since my wife is terribly frightened of elevators, I'll be sure to drag her to this one.
