Guaranteed to keep you on tenterhooks from beginning to end - and without much gore. Dowdle and company trade in the usual trappings of the genre for a tantalizing blend of tension, suspense, and mystery.
From the master of the modern day dark thriller, M. Night Shyamalan, comes Devil. Going into a Shyamalan movie, you know you're going to see a tragedy, a hero, and an amazing twist at the end. Coming off two absolute bombs, Shyamalan needed a good film to get back on track, and Devil is it! This is one of those movies that's hard to describe without giving stuff away, so let me just say, it's Shyamalan at his best! It's a great story, a young unknown cast, and the ending will just blow your mind. Unlike most Horror/Thriller writers, Shyamalan doesn't use gore to shock you, but rather has a story that will just scare you to your core, and by the end of this one I was rattled! This is a top notch film that fell way under the radar, because of its unknown cast, but if you like scary movies or edge of your seat thrillers, you have to see this film!
In the end, Devil feels like an ingenious short film pumped up for theatrical release. Shyamalan's story is sound, but the execution dragged me to hell and left me there wondering if his much-rumored sequel to "Unbreakable" was ever going to arrive.
This movie was absolutely fantastic ! It kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Great script, lots of twists, superb acting. I clapped my hands when it was over ! Congratulations, filmmakers !
Divertido. Assisti pela segunda vez com meus amigos, e mesmo assim me mantive preso em grande maior parte do filme. Claro que ele não serve como terror, e sim mais como um suspense onde tu quer saber de uma vez por todas quem é o demônio - mesmo que o filme jogue na cara tudo que está acontecendo, principalmente com o personagem imigrante inútil, prejudicando o suspense e chamando os espectadores de burros.
Devil has to be one of the most stupidest but funniest movie's I've ever watched. The movie tries so hard to be "scary" but it ends up being too funny and also there's too many characters throughout which aren't that interesting and they are pretty pointless characters.
Overall, Devil's a movie that tries too hard to be scary but ends up being hilariously stupid.
