Just before everyone turned off their computers for the weekend, Paramount’s Insurge Pictures provided us with a viral teaser, one sheet and “living” poster for their micro-budget franchise starter, The Devil Inside, which comes from director and co-writer William Brent Bell (Stay Alive).
Opening in theaters January 6, 2012, the studio is using Paranormal Activity 3 as a launchpad and has now released the first full trailer for the found footage chiller that stars Bonnie Morgan, Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Preston James Hillier, Evan Helmuth, Suzan Crowley, D.T. Carney, and Ionut Grama.
The trailer is pretty awesome as it follows a girl who is scared that she may have the “crazy” gene where, like her mother, she’ll eventually go insane thinking she’s possessed. It looks like a mix between The Rite, The Exorcist and The Last Exorcism — but we all know how hard it is to deliver a truly scary possession film. ([REC]2 and The Exorcist are the only two extraordinary ones that pop into my head.) And as good as the trailer is, it gives away way too much. Hopefully, much like Paranormal Activity 3, none of the trailer footage is actually in the final version of the film…
“Her entire life, Isabella Torelli believed her mother brutally murdered three people because she was clinically insane. After being told the murders occurred during an exorcism she sets out to discover the truth. While documenting her experience with a film crew in Italy, she becomes involved in a series of unauthorized exorcisms.”
