Universal Pictures is doing a superior job in teasing Devil (watch the trailer), the first of “The Night Chronicles” franchise. Inside you’ll find the second one sheet that sheds some unholy light on the audience. Can M. Night Shyamalan produce better than he directs? I’m rooting for this one, especially since it’s coming from the Dowdle brothers, the duo behind both The Poughkeepsie Tapes and Quarantine. Chris Messina plays the lead role of Bowden, a sobered-up homicide detective who is involved with a group of people trapped in an elevator — when they begin to mysteriously die one by one. Devil arrives this September 17th!
