Bad Things Happen For A Reason

Devil also known as The Night Chronicles: Devil is an upcoming supernatural thriller based on a story by M. Night Shyamalan and will be the first of The Night Chronicles trilogy which involves the supernatural within modern urban society. Recently M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender may very well be the worst movie of his career but that does not mean he cannot come up with an interesting original story. The film which is based on a his story, revolves around a group of five individuals who are trapped in a skyscraper elevator.

One of this people is not who they appear to be

Set in an office building in New York City, the film follows five strangers who become trapped in an elevator and after several terrifying and inexplicable events occur, they begin to turn against each other as they come to suspect that one of them is in fact, the Devil. If you think that sounds interesting, just wait until you see the trailer.

The light suddenly went off and then she realize something  just bit her.

and then they begin to turn against each other

I am very sure that some people may not give this film a chance simply because they have been disappointed by Shyamalan’s more-recent films. You know what I'm talking about don't you? The Last Airbender obviously. Luckily this time he will not be directing instead the job were done by Drew and John Erick Dowdle. The Dowdle brothers have already proven their horror movie chops as the writers of Quarantine. John Erick also directed the film.

This is the close that i can get. Seriously, is that the devil? Kinda look like a bare-chest mummy to me. 

This movie will be offering a mix of psychological and supernatural horror and will keep audiences guessing which one of them is the devil himself. Be sure not to miss this. I cant wait to see this. Keeping finger crossed hoping it wont suck just like The Last Airbender.

Piranha 3D

Don't Scream...Just Swim!

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the areas new razor-toothed residents.

Fisherman Matthew Boyd is fishing in Lake Victoria, Arizona when a small earthquake hits, splitting the lake floor and causing a whirlpool. Boyd falls in and is ripped apart by a school of piranhas that emerge from the chasm and ascend the vortex. That night, Sheriff Julie Forester searches for the missing Matthew Boyd with Deputy Fallon, who has found Boyd's boat. They find his mutilated body and contemplate closing the beach down.

The next morning, a lone cliff diver is attacked and consumed by the marauding fish. Julie takes a team of seismologist divers to the fissure. They speculates that the rift leads to a buried prehistoric lake. Two of the seismologist went scuba dive to the bottom, discovering a large cavern filled with large egg stalks. Both are killed before they can escape or alert the others. That left Julie and the other seismologist divers, Novak. They pull the corpse into the boat, capturing a lone piranha.

They brought the piranha to a marine biologist, Mr. Goodman and he explains that the piranhas are a prehistoric species, long believed-extinct and must had been trapped underground for over two million years. So they warned the tourists to evacuate the beach but their warnings are ignored until the piranhas attacked. Mr. Goodman calls Julie on the radio, telling her that the glands on the piranha they obtained were not mature meaning that the piranhas they've been fighting are babies. The babies? So where are the parents? I'm not gonna telling you guys! See it for yourselves!
