Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Circling wildly within the film's main set -- a stalled elevator car -- or hurtling up and down an empty shaft, Mr. Fujimoto's camera is as giddy as a tween at a Justin Bieber concert. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Sep 13, 2011

Fresh: Devil is nothing very special or original, but it gets the job done briskly and economically. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Sep 20, 2010

Rotten: Its overall slightness as a chiller only stresses that this was material unworthy of a notorious control freak filmmaker's undivided attention. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Sep 21, 2010

Fresh: The great cinematographer Tak Fujimoto has the time of his life on this low-budget horror feature, playing with dolly shots, abrupt zooms, and negative space inside the widescreen frame, and the fun is infectious. – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Sep 21, 2010

I know what you're thinking. M. Night wrote it, and it's only an hour and twenty minutes. How can it be good? Well it was a good movie. It had everything it needed. A Simple but good plot, a mystery, good actors. WHat more could you ask for?
