M Night Shyamalan…damn you.

You are a master of temptation…a damn good one.

I actually believed this movie would get you back on the road to redemption and respectability in my eyes. I was wrong.

Devil wasn’t a bad movie. It was actually decent. Good premise. Decent dialog. Good thrill moments. So far so good right…?

Like I said, it was a bad movie. HOWEVER, it was a good movie either. And the reason it wasn’t good…typical Shyamalan. Just tempting, never fully delivering the goods.

And thus why I can’t blame Mr. M Night for this one…I blame myself. I should have known this was going to happen. Build the movie all up and tempt me with juicy clips. Then drop the ball by not giving visibility to any of the key moments within the film. By that I mean, every time something critical was going to happen, M Night made the scene completely dark. WTF!!! Show me the action man!!!

That’s it…I can’t do it any more. No more M Night…no more. I am banning myself from your films until I hear from close, trusted confidants who might happen to watch your films that its worth it to give you another shot.
