I Trapped the Devil

I Trapped the Devil


A man descends into paranoia after trapping what he believes to be the devil in his basement, but things take a dark turn when his family unexpectedly arrive for Christmas.

Deck the halls with fire and brimstone. Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace and joyful family reunions. But when Matt (YOU’RE NEXT icon AJ Bowen) and his wife Karen (SOUTHBOUND’s 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. Steve has trapped a man in his dark, dusty basement. But not just any old man. For Steve truly believes that his hostage is none other than the devil himself.

I TRAPPED THE DEVIL is a clever and claustrophobic horror thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end…
