Angry Movie Lurker Review 29: Devil (3 STARS)


Didn't have a great vibe before sitting down to watch this movie but ended up pleasantly surprised by been entertained and the movie fulfilling the 3 STAR rule, you've all heard about 5 people trapped in a lift in a building and I thought that was the whole 80mins but no there is other stuff happening outside of the elevator, they are been monitored after security (my profession) call the police after CCTV viewing of the elevator requires them to do so. No real stars in this but that doesn't matter as everything is quite quick paced and hurtles towards a conclusion that the people trapped in the lift were meant to be there, at the very least you can place a wager with family or friends at the beginning to see who is the devil is. Don't want to give too much away but it's worth a watch late at night and may make you think twice about taking the elevator.

As usual the rating guide is at the bottom of the blog.

  6. Sounds like a good premise, bu the devil's always in how the thing gets developed. I'll keep an eye out for a chance to see it.

  11. A simple premise. Maybe the execution can turn it into something though. A devil in an elevator huh.

  16. I have to admit I thought that 5 people in an elevator seemed not to be worth 80 minutes of film, but I was surprised by how good this film actually was. Three stars seems fair, I might have gone as far as four given they did a lot with an elevator.
