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.

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.

There's an old belief in TV series production circles that if you're doing a stuck-in-an-elevator episode before Season 4, it's a telltale sign you've run fresh out of ideas.

This is the sort of cut-rate cinematic Cheez Whiz that gives religious horror movies a bad name. Still, at least it's not The Last Airbender.

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.

At best a cheesy, unsatisfying thriller and, at worst, a waste of time.

Devil is guaranteed to keep you on tenterhooks from beginning to end -- and without much gore.

Devil's low-grade hokum would be hard enough to stomach without the spiritual component; confining half the action to a small space where everyone's a suspect mostly results in characters looking shifty and shouting accusations at each other.

Its overall slightness as a chiller only stresses that this was material unworthy of a notorious control freak filmmaker's undivided attention.

Devil is nothing very special or original, but it gets the job done briskly and economically.

A pocket-size supernatural thriller that plays a bit like Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians retold by an unstable Sunday School teacher.

Moves over the line from kind of creepy to kind of stupid. It never recovers, and the last act is sadly unsatisfying.
