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!

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 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: DVD.

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.
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.
An ordinary day. 5 people enter a lift only for it to stop dead. They have all done bad things, and the Devil has come for them.
By rights this should not be enough material to make a movie but somehow it does, and an absorbing one at that. The claustraphobia, creeping distrust, rising panic, blackouts and and effective switch between those trapped in the lift and those trying to get them out.
Suspend sceptisism, relax and enjoy a decent horror story with a good dose of suspense and jumps.
The best type of horror movie to me is one that keeps you guessing. One that has small frights and big frights, a film that builds up fear/suspense/suspicion and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering when the next scare will come.
I like movies that are spooky, thought provoking and this is one of them. It is one of the best horror movies I've personally seen in a long time. I watched it with my mum, we were sat there both with terrified expressions on our faces. I felt on edge and shivery throughout the movie. It was genuinley terrifying.
Its a simple premise, people stuck in a lift. Honestly? I wasn't going to bother watching it, I thought 'Really, a whole horror movie where people are in a life, how boring' But it really isnt!
I'd recommend giving it a watch.
Obviously the storyline is not intended to be particularly believable, but it is handled well. I found myself going in mental circles over who was the "bad guy" - an unusual whodunnit! It's also interesting to see the different characters' reactions and how they start to suspect each other. As there were no major stars, you very much had the sense that anything could happen to anyone, and the suspense built up well. A fairly straightforward tale overall really - if you tend to like M Night Shamalayan's films then it's one to watch. May prove a bit slow going/too far fetched for some though - probably a 3.5 out of 5.

Suspenseful and entertaining enough but nothing special. Easily the best thing to come out in ages which has Shyamalan's name on it, even if it was only as executive producer.Published 4 months ago by Joshua McGregor
