I watched this movie on 01/28/2011 at/on/via Blu Ray.
Devil got a bad rap because if its relationship to M. Night Shyamalan, who wrote the story (but not the screenplay) and produced this film.
Thats too bad, because it was a nice, concise, tense little horror movie that I enjoyed a lot.
Taking place mostly in a stuck elevator in a downtown Philadelphia office building, the scenes are well shot and the pacing is spot on, keeping you engaged enough but not straying into heavy exposition. The audience is given enough background on the characters to move things along, but not so much that it bogs everything down.
Very well done.
