In her four-star review, Emily Von Seele called I Trapped the Devil "cerebrally charged psychological horror at its best," and Scream Factory is looking to bring IFC Midnight's Christmas horror movie home well ahead of the holidays with a Blu-ray and DVD release on August 20th.
Written and directed by Josh Lobo, I Trapped the Devil stars AJ Bowen, Jocelin Donahue, Scott Poythress, Susan Burke, Chris Sullivan, Rowan Russell, and Josh Marrott.
No special features for the Blu-ray & DVD have been announced at this time, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on future announcements, and you can check out the official Blu-ray cover art below.
From Scream Factory: "We are proud to announce that we have a new IFC Midnight title planned for release on Blu-ray & DVD on August 20th!
I TRAPPED THE DEVIL – 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 Steve's 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 the embodiment of evil incarnate? Either way, the stage is set for a true Christmas from hell in this provocative holiday horror.
