I Saw The Devil

As forecasted earlier this past week when the first poster (here) and the first photos (here) from Antonio Campos' film The Devil All the Time appeared -- this is the Netflix movie starring (real deep breath now) Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Sebastian Stan, Haley Bennett, Bill Skarsgard, Mia Wasikowska, Riley Keough, Eliza Scanlan, and Jason Clarke, that's out on September 20th -- we have now gotten the first trailer! Watch it here:

First thought is yes, yes I would follow Robert Pattinson as a snake-oil selling preacher-man, I would follow him anywhere. Don't you see how grimy everybody else is? He's got that beautiful powder blue suit and ruffled shirt? To hell and back, Rob.

Other thoughts -- is this another movie where Riley Keough is terrorized? I love Riley but I think I've hit my breaking point, after Under the Silver Lake and The Lodge and Earthquake Bird and especially especially The House That Jack Built... I am for the time being over, of seeing her get terrorized. This might be especially keen for any of y'all who follow her on Instagram where her very real grief for her brother, who you might be aware just committed suicide this past month, has been ongoing -- I just really need only good things for Riley Keough for awhile now.

I love her so much. And I'm sure those of you who've read the book already are shaking your heads for me as I type -- this will not be the movie for good things for Riley Keough, that much is clear. Anyway it looks like a movie worth seeing -- like I keep saying, that cast that cast THAT CAST. Holy hell that cast. We will see on September 20th.
