Scott Derrickson may be the most consistently undervalued director working in Hollywood today. He made a legitimately good direct-to-video horror sequel with Hellraiser: Inferno. He remade Day the Earth Stood Still and didn't botch it. He even made exorcism movies cool again with The Exorcism of Emily Rose. And last year he delivered one of the most sophisticated and satisfying horror films in recent memory with Sinister, which as far as I'm concerned makes whatever he's working on next a must-see. In this case it's Beware the Night, a crime thriller starring Eric Bana. Time to get excited.
