Review Of : DEVIL

Bookmark and Share

Yes, I know DEVIL is shown in September 2010 & I'm late. :P
 But I missed it , so I watched it on VCD. :)

Directed by John Erick Dowdle but Written by M.Night Shyamalan.

Acted by Chris Messina, Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Logan Marshall-Green, Jenny O'Hara and Geoffrey Arend. 

Supernatural thriller "Devil" (also known as "The Night Chronicles: Devil") is the first of three features that M. Night Shyamalan will produce through The Night Chronicles. The first instalment surrounds a group of people trapped in an elevator, which then strange, paranormal events start to happen to each of them. They soon realize that the devil is among them in human form.


psychological thriller. 

Well, when I first read a review last year saying that this movie was one of the best movies by M.Night Shyamalan since "The Sixth Sense", I thought to myself that I should watch this movie. And this film did not fail me.

The simple straight foward storyline.
But the plot was suspense from start til the end. 
It was like a cross between Final Destination & a little of those kind of "claustrophobic thriller".
At the end of the movie, it really comes to a lesson & makes the audience think. 

If you love physchological thrillers & suspense films, I suggest you to watch this. It's out on DVD & VCD. :)

My Rating?

Plot : 4.75/5
Storyline : 3.5/5
Scoring** : 3.75/5
OVERALL : 8.5/10.
