‘I Trapped the Devil’ Trailer Combines the Magic of Satan and Christmas

Jason McDonald

While I may not love everything that IFC Films puts out, I have to say that just about everything they do sounds damn interesting.  And their next film has definitely caught my attention.

“I Trapped the Devil” comes by way of writer and director Josh Lobo who is marking his feature film debut with this movie.  Here’s what you can expect from the film:

Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace and joyful family reunions. But when Matt (AJ Bowen) and his wife Karen (Susan Burke) show up unannounced at the home of his estranged brother Steve (Scott Poythress) to celebrate the holidays, they are instead greeted with a horrifying surprise: trapped in the basement is a man. But not just any man. Steve believes that his hostage is none other than the devil himself. As shock and skepticism turn to fear and paranoia, Matt and Karen find themselves facing a terrifying quandary: is Steve dangerously unhinged? Or could the mysterious stranger really be evil incarnate? Either way, the stage is set for a true Christmas from hell.

“I Trapped the Devil” will release on April 26th.  Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

        Based on an old One Step Beyond episode where a stranger spends a night at a monastery in which the monks say they have imprisoned the Devil. Of course the stranger lets the prisoner out. Bad move!
