MUST WATCH TRAILER: M. Night Shyamalan And ‘Penthouse’ Pet Ryan Keely Face Off In ‘Escalation’!

From John C. Reilly and Steve Carell to Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, MTV News has been pushing the proverbial envelope lately (and perhaps standards of good taste) with our “After Hours” series.

Up next for us? From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan, the latest entry in the M. Night Chronicles, “Escalation.” And we’ve got your exclusive first look at the trailer!

Devil,” the first of the Chronicles, hits theaters on September 17. Being trapped in an elevator with a bunch of people — one of whom may or may not be possessed by a demon of some sort — is plenty scary. Now imagine being stuck on an escalator with a Penthouse pet, M. Night and a bunch of knives…watch below to see what we’re talking about.
