Horror Goes Amish in The Devil's Hand [Trailer]

Devil possession and the Amish seem to go hand in hand so well that I'm a bit surprised this is the first time I've seen a horror movie with this setting and even more surprising, one that doesn't look like a total write-off.

Directed by Christian E. Christiansen (who previously made the terrible Single White Female rip-off/update The Roommate), The Devil's Hand (previously known as the equally generic but far more forgettable Where the Devil Hides) stars Rufus Sewell, Colm Meaney, Jennifer Carpenter and a slew of relative newcomers as the six girls at the center of this story. They were all born on the same night and according to prophecy, all but one will die and the last remaining survivor will become the titular Devil's Hand.

It's ridiculous stuff but [Continued ...]

New One-Sheet for The Devils Hand

A new one-sheet for Christian E. Christiansen's new demonic thriller 'The Devil's Hand' (previously known as 'Where the Devil Hides') has emerged. It's a tad uninspired I'm afraid to report and unfortunately has to rely on oversized text to give it some impact. It does however feature a number of the main cast members that includes Alycia Debnam Carey, Adelaide Kane (below) and Leah Pipes. Director Christiansen, who directed the Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly 'Single White Female' styled thriller 'The Roommate', helms from a script penned by Karl Mueller. Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Jim McKeny, Katie Garfield, Ric Reitz and former 'Dexter' actress Jennifer Carpenter also star. Check out the poster below....

Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter Involved In Satanic Devout Cult Film The Devil’S Hand; Trailer Online

The Devil’S Hand

(VOD/Theaters Oct.10)

With Dexter fans still feeling the sting of that finale (Why God Why?!!), fans of Jennifer Carpenter can now rejoice, as the debut trailer for Christian E. Christiansen’s The Devil’S Hand (hitting VOD/theaters on Oct.10th) has finally hit. Written by Mr. Jones director Karl Mueller, the film revolves around a devout village of religious fanatics who believe that six girls born on the sixth day of the sixth month are of Satan and need to be killed by their 18th birthday or else they’re bring forth the devil. I’m a sucker for Satanic horror, especially when it involves cults, and it’s about time that Carpenter is giving something fun to play with again.

Trailer for Lionsgate’s ‘The Devil’s Hand’

Lionsgate has released the new trailer for Christian E. Christiansen’s The Devil’s Hand. The film tells the story of an Amish community, New Bethlehem, which fears the potential that every girl may become possessed by the Devil on their eighteenth birthday. Several girls born on the same day are about to turn eighteen on the same day, June 6th, and of course people jump to the conclusion that they are Satan’s children. The film looks like a mix of M. Night Shyamalan’s awful The Villiage, Ken Russell’s incredible classic The Devils, Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible, with a few other paranormal horror films sprinkled throughout. Hopefully The Devil’s Hand doesn’t turn out as bad as The Village, but we don’t have to wait long to find out since the film will be released on October 10th. The film stars Colm Meaney (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,

Film Review: ‘On the Edge’

Film Review: ‘On the Edge’
Souped-up drag-racing drama “On the Edge” is a minor retread of standard U.S. fare, tricked out with a moralistic buddy scenario in the hopes of attracting a larger fanbase than adolescents and adult males developmentally stuck in high school. Marking helmer Christian E. Christiansen’s temporary return to Denmark, sandwiched between American entries “The Roommate” and the forthcoming “Where the Devil Hides,” the pic displays a questionable appreciation for trashy testosterone-based recreation in the form of well-handled but formulaic, screechy car chases. International sales are riding high, though audiences for this sort of actioner aren’t exactly the subtitle-reading type.

Remake potential for the project is high, though the seat-of-your-pants energy of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise is in short supply here. Best friends Nikolaj (Cyron Melville) and Martin (Jakob Oftebro) spend their off hours whooping it up at illegal racing contests, staged with the expected amount of alcohol,
