Five people get stuck in an elevator. One of them is the devil. Sounds like a great set-up to a joke. Unfortunately, the only joke here is the movie. The acting was fine and some moments had me near the edge of my seat, but those few things were overshadowed by sub-par writing, cardboard cut-out characters, okay but rather loud music, Inception-like "waa"s, and a morality tale so strong that it could knock someone out if it was liquor. It wasn't even scary. Good thriller for people who don't want to have emotional attachment to the characters.

The story is about a group of people trapped in an elevator come to believe the devil is amongst them. I actually did not hate this movie not like other people did. The movie has it's creepy moments and it's stupid Moments.

Just how good do you think a movie about a bunch of people trapped in an elevator with the devil can really be? If you think it's going to suck then you're right! This movie SUCKED & I think the only reason I watched it from beginning to end was so that I didn't waste the $1 I spent renting it from Redbox

A decent, if a little predictable, thriller. A group of 5 are trapped in an elevator and find that they have to battle what may be the devil. While technically a horror film, it's not very scary at all, and it is predictable, however it is still worth the watch to see how things end up. There are a few cliches that you have to get past, but overall, it was an enjoyable 90 minutes. I have to admit, I wasn't too excited to get into an elevator the next day.

"Devil" by Yojimbo

Five strangers are trapped in a lift and when one of the occupants is attacked it becomes increasingly obvious that there is a killer in their midst. Based on a story by M. Night Shyamalan, Devil is a hokey supernatural chiller that successfully uses paranoia and suspense to beef up a rather slight and silly premise. A little like a satanic Phone Booth, the occupants are coached by a watching detective as he desperately tries to save them before time runs out and at 75 minutes, it's economically told with a minimum of fuss. It's the kind of film that could've been a total dud in the wrong hands, but thanks to some deft direction and creative photography it's actually an entertaining slice of Twilight Zone inspired nonsense that doesn't outstay its welcome.

The devil likes elevators

Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. What should be a really great movie turned out to be just 'okay' mainly because the direction. The direction was decent at best, there was too much explaining of the plot and not enough letting it unfold naturally. Plus, the twist at the end wasn't even there. Don't waste your time seeing it in the theatre, this is definitely a rental.

One thing I don't get is why they named the movie devil? The movie would have been better if you didn't know right off the bat that the devil was in the elevator with them.

On a personal note, I hate narration in movies when it isn't needed. This movie narrated things that didn't need to be there and may have been better if it wasn't for that aspect. Also the very end was fairly predictable and dis...

I'll'll definitely give it a look. Knowing Shyamalan, it'll turn out that the actual elevator or someone's briefcase in the elevator is the Devil. Something crazy and assinine.
