I Trapped The Devil recently fell into my cross-hairs when I stumbled on the magnificent first poster. It had that old-school feel to it. I knew straight away that I Trapped The Devil could only be one genre, and that was ‘horror’.
My interest was tweaked further when I learnt of the simple, yet (if done right), highly effective concept. In my opinion, this is a great idea for a horror movie and one that could possibly get under our skin.
What’s it about?
A man becomes increasingly paranoid and unhinged after he traps, who he believes is Satan himself in the basement of his house.
Judging from the trailer, I think this looks damn interesting. We could have a really good psychological indie horror to look forward to. We live in a sorry world populated with repetitiveness and franchises. I take off my hat to those who are still trying to think outside the box. This, to me, looks like
There seems to be a lot of comparisons to a certain episode of The Twilight Zone. That episode was called The Howling Man.
IFC Films will release I Trapped The Devil on the 26th of April. I usually get some screeners from IFC for review consideration. I will get a review live ASAP if one arrives.
Looks like this is also the directorial debut from newcomer Josh Lobo. I am looking forward to seeing what creepiness awaits.
