We have a brand new trailer for Along Came the Devil 2. This serves as a sequel to last year's Along Came the Devil, which didn't make much of a splash at the box office or really any splash at the box office but it must have done well enough on the VOD market to justify a follow-up. And by the looks of it, we've got some low budget possession horror goods on the way this fall, for those who need a fix in that department.
The trailer is a little tough to get a grip on at first. There's a spooky incident at a church and a reverend who seems determined to do away with this evil, whatever it may be. The meat of the trailer is one, single extended sequence that looks like the kind of thing we see at least once or twice a year in the mainstream horror realm, with a poor girl alone in a dark house when something creepy comes her way. The whole thing concludes with a seance that attempts to make contact with the devil, which seems like a very bad idea.
Director Jason DeVan returns for the sequel. He co-wrote the screenplay alongside Heather DeVan. The original movie centered on Ashley Sydney Sweeney who was sent to live with her estranged Aunt Tanya Jessica Barth. Upon returning to her old hometown, she has visions of her departed mother, which drives her to contact the spirit world. Ashley, as a result, accidentally unearths a demonic force, which leaves her loved ones fighting for her soul. The first movie wasn't exactly a critical darling, currently boasting a 38 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The filmmakers made quick work of the sequel, as filming kicked off in April, meaning we're looking at a six-month turnaround come time of release.
Along Came the Devil 2 sees several cast members returning and will further the angle of this unleashed demonic force. It centers on Jordan Laura Slade Wiggins who, after receiving an unsettling voicemail, makes her way back home searching for answers. Her journey leads her to discover her estranged father, leading to even more questions. We come to find a demonic force has attached itself to the town, meaning no one is safe. The only one who seems to know anything is the small town's Reverend.
A new poster has also been released, which leans heavily on the possession horror angle. The cast includes Oscar-nominee Bruce Davison, who returns as Reverend Michael. The rest of the ensemble includes Laura Slade Wiggins Shameless, Mark Ashworth The Magnificent Seven, Cassius DeVan The Girl, Tiffany Fallon Trade and Heather DeVan Mindless. Along Came the Devil 2 is set to arrive in select theaters and on digital platforms on October 11. Be sure to check out the trailer from the DeVan Clan Productions YouTube channel for yourself.
Quiver Distribution dropped the trailer for the Nicolas Cage-led thriller Running with the Devil today. The National Treasure actor stars alongside the Matrix's Laurence Fishburne in the drug trafficking flick where, "From the fields to the streets, everyone is running with the devil."
When a cocaine shipment is compromised, the drug cartel's CEO, known as The Boss Crawl's Barry Pepper orders his most trusted henchman, Cage's The Cook, to audit the company's supply chain. Or as Nicolas Cage says in the trailer, he has "administrative issues [he has] to attend to." Joining him on the dangerous journey is a master drug trafficker known as The Man Academy Award Nominee Laurence Fishburne.
The drugs are making their "perilous trek across international borders past gangsters, refiners, and couriers," but they're also being tracked by Federal Agents under The Agent in Charge played by Leslie Bibb Iron Man who, the trailer tells us, doubles the task force. Unfortunately, by the time The Cook realizes where the drug network is breaking down, it may be too late. He might not be able to keep the cartel and The Boss satisfied.
The film is written and directed by Jason Cabell. This will be his first solo directorial project and the second film he has penned. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cabell, a former Navy SEAL, pulled from his real-life experiences to create the film. He reportedly served in more than 100 countries, including a stint in which he worked closely with the DEA in Colombia.
Running With the Devil is produced by Patriot Pictures' Michael Mendelsohn alongside Jim Steele Vengeance: A Love Story and USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage. Mike Nilon, Etchie Stroh and Natalie Perrotta are executive producing. The film stars Nicolas Cage as The Cook, Cole Hauser as The Executioner, Clifton Collins Jr. as The Farmer, Laurence Fishburne as The Man, Leslie Bibb as The Agent in Charge, Barry Pepper as The Boss, Peter Facinelli as Number One, Adam Goldberg as The Snitch, Natalia Reyes as The Woman, Sarah Minnich as The Wife, and Tait Fletcher as The Collector.
Nicolas Cage has amassed a filmography of more than 100 films that range anywhere from romantic or family comedies like Moonstruck and The Family Man, cult classics like Face/Off and Gone in 60 Seconds, despised films like The Wicker Man and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and largely unseen movies like Pay the Ghost and Dying of the Light.
He's found moderate success in a couple of his recent projects, however. He lended his voice for a small role in the hugely successful, both critically and financially, Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. Cage played the noir version of Spider-Man in the uniquely animated film. His recent trek into surrealism and violence found solid reviews. Mandy follows a couple who find tragedy during a run-in with a hippie cult and demon-biker henchmen in a secluded forest. In other words, we don't know what to expect from a Cage film these days, but the new trailer has us curious.
Running With the Devil hits theaters on September 20. The trailer comes direct from Quiver Distribution.

One of the most anticipated horror movies is Rob Zombie's upcoming sequel 3 from Hell, and the director has finally released the official trailer online. Leading up to today, Zombie had been releasing sneak peek photos of the different characters in the movie as he counted down towards the trailer's release. Now, fans can finally see some actual footage from the movie in all its horrific glory, and though we can only see so much, it's clear 3 from Hell will certainly be living up to its hard R rating.
Starring in the movie as the sinister Firefly family are Sheri Moon Zombie as Baby, Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding, and Bill Moseley as Otis. Barring Michael Myers, the Firefly family are defintely Zombie's most popular horror movie characters. They first appeared in the director's debut movie House of 1000 Corpses back in 2003, instantly breaking their way into pop culture as some of the horror genre's most dastardly antagonists. This brought about their return a couple years later when The Devil's Rejects was released in 2007. This time, Baby, Spaulding, and Otis are even more horrifying than before, leaving masses of dead bodies behind them on a deadly murder spree.

It had previously been presumed the Firefly family members were all killed in the end of The Devil's Rejects. The movie culminated in a fierce showdown between the Fireflys and a large group of police officers, as each of them appeared to be struck with bullets multiple times. As we know now, it turns out we haven't seen the last of the Firefly family after all. This time, will the story again conclude with all three Fireflys finally getting their comeuppance, or might we see a happy ending from their point of view, of course with the three murderers riding off into the sunset as a free family? Either way, one thing is for sure - there's going to be a high body count.
In addition to the returning Firefly family members, there are other familiar faces appearing in the movie fans might recognize. At this point, some of the other confirmed cast members include Danny Trejo Machete, Dee Wallace Cujo, Richard Brake Game of Thrones, Daniel Roebuck The Fugitive, and Jeff Daniel Phillips Halloween II. Zombie has also teased plenty of "bizarre" celebrity cameos as well, noting that Chaz Bono is one of many odd appearances fans can spot when watching 3 from Hell.
Rob Zombie originally wrapped filming 3 from Hell fairly early into 2018, but postponed the editing process until after completing his concert tour as a musician. Now well over a year since shooting the movie, it's so nice to finally see what Zombie has in store by way of the trailer, even if the wait getting here was a bit painful. Because he's bringing back his most popular characters coupled with years of experience as a filmmaker, Zombie has the potential to make 3 from Hell his most successful movie yet. We'll see how it does at the box office once it finally hits theaters.
In a strange way, watching a mediocre Korean thriller is almost as exhilarating as watching any of the legitimately great ones the country's film industry continues to churn out — it's wild to see how standards have gotten high enough that even a rambunctious serial killer saga with an ingenious premise and a swaggering Ma Dong-seok performance can still feel like something of a disappointment.
Such is the case with Lee Won-tae's “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil,” a giddy little bruiser that might feel like more of a refreshing kick to the chest if not for how much tamer it is than “The Good, the Bad, the Weird,” or how poor the plotting is when compared to a recent crime saga like 2013's riveting “New World” to name just two of the many superior movies that also happen to boast Ma's barrel-chested charm. So while it's tempting to go easy on this frequently electric film, and forgive it for not living up to its full potential, the most satisfying thing about Lee's spotty underworld adventure is the sense that we've been conditioned to expect better.
If would help if the first 20 minutes of “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil” didn't make you brace for a modern classic. Set in the summer of 2005, and sort of based on some actual murders that took place around that time, Lee's script reassembles the disembodied scraps of this morbid history into a conceit that cleverly blurs the thin blue line between cops and criminals. On one side of things we have Jung Tae-suk Kim Moo-yeol, a trigger-happy police officer in a country where even the long arm of the law isn't allowed to hold a pistol in its hand. Young, restless, and always looking to get ahead — think Martin Riggs meets Lupin III — Jung isn't quite crooked, but he's willing to bend a little when the mood strikes or he gets bored in traffic.
That makes him a huge pain in the ass for mob boss Jang Dong-soo Ma, who can't pay off a cop who's only interested in getting a promotion. Jang is a rusty tank of a man who has his own ideas of justice — the scar-faced don is introduced in a scene where he beats on a punching bag with a guy inside of it; he later squashes an underworld squabble by ripping out a henchman's teeth with his bare fingers and forcing a rival to drink them — and his power is tethered to his well-known penchant for violence. The only person in town who hasn't been taught to fear a guy like Jang is K Kim Sung-kyu, a handsome young serial killer who drives behind his random victims, nudges the bumper of their car, and then shivs them to death when they get out to inspect the damage.
When K runs into Jang, it's hard to say which of them is having the unluckier night. Jang's body survives the attack — he's too beefy and boisterous to be felled by a little shard of scrap metal — but his reputation is suddenly on life support. The other gangsters in the area falsely assume that Jang was the target of a mob hit gone wrong, and they can smell the wounded don's weakness from a mile away. The only way Jang can reassert his strength is to catch K, kill him dead, and scatter his body parts around the city for all to see. But he can't do it alone. He'll have to team up with Jung, the only local cop who's actually convinced that all the recent murders are the work of one man. Jung wants a collar, and Jang wants a corpse, but they both know they need to catch K before they can decide what to do with him. “It's a filthy world,” Jang says, and there's no use pretending the stains won't smudge together.
In broad strokes, this premise has already been explored to death, but “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil” breathes new life into it by elevating at least two of its three major characters far above their archetypes. The wet and neon-washed city streets might reek of Michael Mann, and the cheesy guitar licks of Jo Yeong-wook's annoyingly intrusive score might sound like a hot mess of sub-Duran Duran power chords that have clodded together a rare misstep for the genius composer responsible for “The Handmaiden”, but Lee's film is able to muscle its way through most of its aesthetic shortcomings on the power of its personalities.
“The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil”
Ma is ultra-lovable as the gangster with a heart of ...well, not gold, but perhaps a blood-tarnished bronze. The burly Korean-American star, so good in the crossover hit “Train to Busan,” is a rumpled force of nature as a mob boss who's forced to become a caricature of himself in order to save face in front of his rivals; you almost expect that you'd find pinstripes tattooed along his skin if Jang ever took off his “Guys and Dolls” costume. All it takes is a twitch of Ma's upper lip or a puff of his cheeks to convey the fragility of Jang's power, and how threatened he feels by the oblivious serial killer who's put his empire in jeopardy. Not since “Heat” has a movie so implicitly understood that the robbers have more skin in the game than the cops; that crime is an existence, but police work is just a job.
And Lee is smart enough to let Jang outshine Jung — just enough to show how urgent this is for the crime lord. Both men put themselves in harm's way and get involved in all the chaotic fisticuffs that come with the territory of being in a Korean thriller, but only Jang kicks down a karaoke bar door, traps someone under it, and then beats the shit out of them by punching directly through the wood. On a related note: It's worth noting that movies are often a lot more inventive when they can't rely on guns to shoot their way out of a scene.
It's the less animated moments where “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil” struggles. Lee's inexplicable focus on inter-office squabbles distracts from the rich dynamic between Jang and Jung, and the fun of forcing their respective lackeys to interact the film peaks when the gangsters bond with the cops by explaining that “our dicks may be many, but we have one heart!”. And while it's bad enough that the convoluted bureaucratic element sucks the life out of things between set pieces, the worst part of it is that it leaves “the devil” with nothing to do but skulk around and wait to get caught.
Kim cuts a menacing presence in the role of K, but there's nothing under his sharp homicidal scowl — no rhyme or reason or anything else. K is just an excuse to pair Jang and Jung together, but Lee does everything in his power to keep them apart before ending things with a Hail Mary pass for meaning something about the mutability of moral codes in the final moments. The only meaning here is the meaning that Ma provides, and the message that he's a major star comes through loud and clear. Just ask Sylvester Stallone: His company is currently producing an American remake of “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil,” and Ma has already been hired to reprise his role. Best of all, the standards for crime thrillers are a hell of a lot lower on this part of the planet.
“The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil” will be released in theaters by Well Go USA on June 7.
