DEVIL

For as long as it stays in the cramped confines of a stuck elevator
car, this Shyamalan-produced thriller has a nifty, scary-story-by-the-
campfire feel. Then it morphs into a morality play, and it's here
where M. Night's loftier pretensions keep the movie from being simply
a great cheesy scare. TV actor Geoffrey Arend makes the most notable
impression in a cast of nobodies. There are no scares and not much
gore to speak of. The best violence is audio only, carried out in the
dark. And that message-y ending goes down more like medicine than
satisfaction. — Jeff Schultz
