Not a single review of M. Night's Devil

What's going on? I don't see a review anywhere. No one's even talking about it. I was considering going to see it, today, but after discovering this blackout of discussion, I've changed my mind.

Those reviews weren't there, when I posted. Thanks.

Just a quick note, in case anyone is unaware: While the trailers are trying to sell the film on his name, Shyamalan did not direct this film. He wrote the story & produced, Brian Nelson wrote the screenplay, and Drew Dowdle directed.

Well, marketing people screwed up big time by trying to use M. Night as selling feature of this movie. He was already being perceived as a two hit wonder, so I wouldn't have bet on the Last Airbender working out and getting him back into the public's graces.

Re: Not a single review of M. Night's Devil

I love how people are really enjoying tearing down Shyamalan lately. Has he made questionable movies the last several years? Yes.

However, after The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs...a trinity of films that any director would be blessed to have made...the guy's got my viewing for anything he'll ever make.

They can't all be brilliant.

Not screened for critics, huh? Only movies that absolutely suck balls don't get screened.

Re: Not a single review of M. Night's Devil

The movie wasn't screened for critics, meaning any critic wanting to write a review for it had to wait until it was released and watch it with the public. Any reviews that there will be should be hitting the press this weekend but it's doubtful that many will do it. The movie wasn't getting good press to begin with and when a movie isn't screened critics are less-likely to pay (their own money or money from the paper) to see a movie to write a review.

I thought the trailer looked pretty decent, but it's not a movie I would pay to see on the big screen.

Re: Not a single review of M. Night's Devil

I am going to see it tonight at the drive-ins, along with The Last Exorcism. There's no way I could justify paying full price for either of these in the theater, but at half the price of a theater ticket for two movies, I think it will be a fun night.

"Two hit wonder"? What was the other one?
