Product Description

Five seemingly ordinary people become trapped in a skyscraper elevator. Each has a dirty secret, a tainted past. All seems well until the lights go out … and the screaming begins. With no way to escape, the horrific truth dawns that one of them is the Devil … and only then do they realise that very bad things happen for very good reasons. From the mind of M Night Shyamalan (Sixth Sense, Signs), the director of Quarantine and the writer of 30 Days of Night, Devil is an unforgettably scary movie that will leave you breathless!

Extras:
  • Deleted Scenes
  • The Story
  • The Devil's Meeting
  • The Night Chronicle

From Amazon.co.uk

Five people trapped in an elevator, and one of them is the Devil--it's an intriguing launch pad for a movie, and in the hands of producer M. Night Shyamalan, it has all the makings of a first-class supernatural thriller. Unfortunately, Shyamalan's concern is more with the mechanics of the story--how to pull off that celebrated final-act switcheroo--than in presenting flesh-and-blood characters or dialogue that reeks of pulp. There's a moral high-handedness to the proceedings that's also off-putting--there's a reason why these five strangers are trapped in the lift, and why Detective Messina (the very likable Chris Messina from Julie & Julia) is summoned to rescue them, and why every character is set in motion in Shyamalan's Skinner box of a plot, but it hinges on very well-worn territory, which bites deeply into the story's novel conceit. The cast is uniformly fine--in addition to Messina, there are fine turns by such underrated actors as Bokeem Woodbine, Jenny O'Hara, Geoffrey Arend (in the elevator), and Matt Craven and Caroline Dhavernas (outside)--and the direction by John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine), who coproduced with brother Drew and Shyamalan, does an impressive job of keeping the action fluid in the confines of the setting. But the central conceit of Devil is comic book material tarted up as an event picture, which doesn't elicit much hope for the rest of Shyamalan's Night Chronicles trilogy, of which this is the first entry. --Paul Gaita

Format: DVD
The two genres I generally dislike are westerns and horror flics. Therefore I'm not entirely sure how I got to watch this horror outing, but my goodness me did I enjoy it. OK, it was more suspenseful than gory, but it had me gripped, even though it's all pure hokum.

The film starts spookily well with aerial scenes of Philadelphia but with the camera turned upside down. This creates an unsettling sense of other worldliness that sets exactly the right tone for the events ahead.

The cast is good, the acting believable enough and the whole affair trundles along at just the right pace.

It has all the enjoyable fun of reading a cracking good short story and if you're prepared to not over analyse the daftness of it all, this movie makes for good flat-lining entertainment. Highly recommended.

After reading other reviews I almost didn't buy this film. I would have missed out! better than I expected with an original story line, good acting and not too bad an ending. Its not a scary as many films I have watched but does keep you guessing. Well worth ignoring the bad reviews for

Devil is about, well, um, the Devil (in case the title didn't tip you off) and how he likes to mess with the bad people destined to join him in hell for all eternity. And, in this case, he chooses five people with dubious pasts to trap in a lift and then generally mess with in the most grisly way he can think of.

The first thing I should say about Devil is that it's quite a short film, therefore talking about the plot may give away a few twists that might spoil the enjoyment. It doesn't need to be too long. Not all the action takes place inside the lift (as there is a team working on getting them out of there), but it's still quite a condensed atmosphere that doesn't lend itself too much scope to expand. Therefore, in this case, less is more.

It's actually quite good. Oddly enough, despite being a horror film, it's rated 15 (or even PG13 in some places), meaning there isn't an awful lot of blood and entrails floating about the place. What `scares' come are largely jumpy and `atmospheric.' However, that doesn't seem to matter. It's a condensed little film that should appeal to horror buffs with some decent performances and enough twists to hopefully surprise you.

Probably not a classic up to The Exorcist's standards, but entertaining enough in what it gives you.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 24 Sept. 2013
Format: DVD
The movie starts out with an a priori that the devil exist and takes human form. Part of the movie is narration. His gateway is a suicide, which happens early, as a man falls on a Bethel Bread truck. (Bethel is Hebrew for house of God.) An investigator, who lost his family in a hit and run 5 years ago is talking in a restaurant to a man we never see again. He tells him that "the ability to forgive determines the quality of the rest of your life." While investigating the suicide, another murder happens with 5 people trapped in an elevator.

We don't know much about these people, or for that fact we never get to know any of the characters. We do know from all the narration chatter that one of these people is the devil. It is up to us, the audience, to figure out who it is. I won't tell you who it is, but I was able to nail the person right off, having seen "10 Little Indians." There is a fleeting clue in the film too. For someone who is new to horrors with twists, this might be a good beginner. For seasoned viewers, you might find the movie a bit slow and predictable.

The acting was good and did what it could to save the script, a solid three and a half stars overall. I will say one thing, the Philadelphia Fire Department was never that slow when Rizzo was mayor.

Format: Blu-ray
I'd heard some bad things about this film so I was rather sceptical when I watched it. However, it held my attention from start to finish and I found it to be very entertaining. The basic premise that there are five people in an elevator and one of them is the Devil is fairly fresh. And in spite of the fact many of the bad reviews I read said it was obvious who the Devil was from the start, I'd have to be honest and say that I suspected each of the characters at one time or another during the film. At the end it would have been easy to say I knew it was X all along, but it would be a lie to say I was absolutely 100% certain, and that's what gives the film its tension, you can never be entirely sure you know what's going on. Devil has an interesting premise and some decent twists and at around 90 minutes it doesn't hang around long enough to get boring.
I definitely recommend giving this film a chance.

To describe Devil as simply another horror movie would be to give you almost entirely the wrong impression. This tense, nerve-shredding thriller relies on almost relentless, edge-of-your-seat, storytelling rather than gore. In fact, there is very little overt gore anywhere in the film, what little does occur is critical to the story and its effectiveness is massively improved by this choice to only use it where it truly matters.
To compensate for the unexpected lack of this 'traditional' horror element, the story has been tightened to the extent that there is little in the way of breathing spaces. Wisely expanding the plot beyond those five trapped in the elevator, effective use is made of a selected group of characters drawn from the police, security and building maintenance. Their stories help to bring variety and colour, with each dramatic moment adding to the peculiarity of events already occurring in the two-metre square of death. And every time they think they finally have a handle on what is going on and a rational explanation presents itself, the game changes and the questions keep coming:
Who is killing these people?
How are they doing it and why?
Who will survive?
And who will be next?

The largely unknown cast are uniformly excellent, each giving their part real life and character, a particular achievement as they are rarely referred to by name (a deliberate plot device). The crew also do well, the camera-work, editing and music all helping to provide an astonishingly overlooked gem. It is, however, worth mentioning that, like some other Shyamalan films, this will be a substantially different experience on a second or future viewing: the denouement is excellent, but it will make you reappraise the rest of the film.

Maybe I'll start taking the stairs...
