After the massive success of Paranormal Activity and its sequel, Paramount has decided to launch a smaller, micro-budget division that would act similar to how Insidious was put together for under a million bucks. I thought this idea would be a unique move on the studios part. A chance to let young filmmakers make something that might actually be seen by a bigger audience, but it looks like Paramount is looking for some simple cash grabs. The Devil Inside looks like an exact mix of The Rite, The Last Exorcism and Paranormal Activity.
I wouldn’t even bring Insidious into the equation because if this trailer is any indication of what The Devil Inside is all about then I’d rather pass on it and watch Insidious again, which is easily better than all of the films The Devil Inside is trying to copy.
The film has been done before, very recently none the less. The Devil Inside opens on January 6th, 2012.
