A taut, expert and engrossing thriller with sense of visual restraint that is refreshing in this age of abhorrent overexposure.

The characters are unlikable and annoying but the suspense built up is very real, making "Devil" a thriller worth checking out.

An excellent and often intense peak in to the battle of good and evil...

For a small package, it conjures up some effective ideas and scares, as well as some terrific atmospheric moments.

A small scale but modestly effective broken elevator thriller that is more Agatha Christie than Alfred Hitchcock.

Devil is pretty obvious in its intentions, with not-so-subtle religious metaphors spread throughout, but the film delivers enough thrills and chills to keep audiences entertained.

Holy mother of god: behold the first M Night Shyamalan-associated film in the last 4 years that doesn't utterly blow.

M. NIGHT Shyamalan has churned out a few stinkers of late, but his new thriller Devil could mark his return to form.

Though the poster bravely boasts this movie as being ''from the mind of M Night Shyamalan'', Devil is actually not an over-long, near-unwatchable piece of badly directed high-concept dross, but a tight little killer thriller.

Entertaining, spirited mystery which mercifully avoids the grisly path, but loses its way in simplified sermons.

It's voyeuristic and compelling.

If there's a market out there for small-scale, efficient, moderately creepy thrillers, then a Night Chronicles series could work -- right up to the moment Shyamalan starts coming up with those lame twist endings again.

Tense, overheated but played rigorously straight, Devil is exactly what you want from a B-movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

When Devil tries to be scary, however, it more-or-less succeeds.

A few creepy ideas and excellent direction make this short, sharp horror flick reasonable entertainment for lovers of the genre.

...a better-than-average thriller that's ultimately quite a bit more effective than Shyamalan's last few directorial efforts.

A clever and dark little tale of horror with an entertaining 'whodunit' aspect to it.
