“Five people stuck in an elevator, and one of them is the devil.” Obviously a catchy hook, although it should have ideally been shot 50 years ago as a half-hour Twilight Zone episode. Although produced by M. Night Shyamalan and based on a Shyamalan “story,” the screenwriter of Devil is Brian Nelson, and the co-directors are Drew Dowdle and John Erick Dowdle.

I feel good about this because I’m down with the leading cast members — Chris Messina (Vicky Christina Barcelona, Julie & Julia), Geoffrey Arend (husband of Christina Hendricks) and Bojana Novakovic.
