The MFF podcast is back, and this week we’re talking about the underappreciated 2010 film Devil. I love this film, and think it came out at the absolute worst time as producer M. Night Shyamalan was coming off of Lady in the Water, The Happening, and The Last Airbender. Critics and moviegoers were wary of the John Erick Dowdle (As Above, So Below, Quarantine) directed film, which resulted in mediocre reviews and less-than-stellar box office returns ($34 million).

That lack of interest is a shame because Devil is a neat little one-off film that features a claustrophobic vibe and singular story. The 52% Rotten Tomatoes rating is better than the standard horror film rating and it is light years ahead of the 25% average of Shyamalan’s prior three films. Devil features one of the coolest openings of recent memory and I loved the grey and off-kilter vibe it established. In this episode, we discuss jelly toast, movie devils and the Night Chronicles. Enjoy!

If you are a fan of the podcast, make sure to send in some random listener questions so we can do our best to not answer them correctly. We thank you for listening, and hope you enjoy the episode!
