Paramount Pictures has a new horror movie coming in January entitled The Devil Inside, and we have an interesting image from the film to share with you.

The Devil Inside centers around the plight of Isabella Rossi (Fernanda Andrade), the daughter of Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley), a woman who in 1989 confessed to the brutal murder of three people.  Fast forward 2o years and Isabella, sets out to find the real truth as to what happened that fateful night her mother was incarcerated.

The inquisitive daughter travels to The Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy, where her mother has been sequestered while the doctors try to determine if she is mentally ill or  demonically possessed.  Maria recruits two young exorcists played by Evan Helmuth and  and Simon Quarterman, in an attempt to cure her mother by using methods that are both scientific and religious.

Unfortunately, the group comes face to face with true evil embodied by the demons that possess Isabella’s mother.  Paramount is hoping that new marketing techniques will help freshen up the demon possession/exorcism genre – as demonstrated by their new “living image” below:


Now, we have seen one person possessed by a demon in the forever classic The Exorcist, and at this point we have seen numerous found-footage possession flicks, most notably The Last Exorcism.  The question is how to keep the sub-genre(s) fresh…

 The Devil Inside looks creepy enough (just check out the trailer), but will it succeed where other found-footage horror films have failed?

We’ll find out when the film hits theaters on January 6, 2012.
