Over the course of my festival-goings, I've been fortunate enough to check out Once Upon a Time in the Midlands, Dead Man's Shoes, and This Is England. Those films have two things in common: They're all damn good, and they all come from filmmaker Shane Meadows. The second flick is a pretty rough revenge tale that comes pretty close to horror terrirtory, so this news from DC and Empire makes me pretty happy indeed: Looks like Mr. Meadows is about to jump into the occult with a new film called Beware the Devil.

Based on the book by the same name, the story has to do with skeptics, Ouija boards, and exorcisms. Combine that with Meadows' track record ... suffice to say we'll be covering this project again once some more details arise.
