Devil — from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan — snuck into theaters today without advance critic screenings. Was there something to worry about, or does it deliver decent B-movie chills? Reviews are all over the map.
"On paper it's a ridiculous premise, but in execution works surprisingly well. At the very least, you've never seen another film quite like it."
— Luke Y. Thompson, E!
"...nothing very special or original, but it gets the job done briskly and economically."
— Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A serviceable burst of high-end hokum..."
— Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's not great, but it's not bad, and the fellow who foisted the The Happening, Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender on the faithful would take that praise any day."
— Roger Moore, Chicago Tribune
"...a silly horror-thriller about a group of people trapped in an elevator with Satan incarnate."
— Scott Tobias, Onion AV Club
