M. Knight Shyamalan has been on a downward trend for a while. I almost wrote him off after I saw The Last Airbender, so I had very low expectations for Devil when I heard it was written and produced by him.
I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised and thought this movie was actually quite entertaining. Devil is a suspenseful movie about 5 people who are trapped in an elevator together and one by one they are killed by supernatural forces.
This movie is a decent horror/mystery and it keeps you guessing. It has the usual plot twists and surprising developments you might expect from M. Knight. I give Devil 7.1 stars since I'm pleased he appears to be on an upswing again.
