Good movie with an unexpected ending. The characters are all well-written and I think the plot was worthwhile. It is not a landmark film by any means, but still an enjoyable horror film.

A surprisingly solid film, Devil delivers tense psychological sequences aided by atmospheric story-telling created by John Erick Dowdle of Quarantine fame and producer M. Night "What a Twist" Shyamalan. Like most, I was skeptical at best when this production bore the name of the former golden boy of Sixth Sense and Unbreakable fame more recently known for his blunders "The Last Airbender" and "The Happening." Whether the overall product of this film resulted in any combination of a production restriction of M. Night, an impressive directorial showing by Dowdle, a creative collaboration between them and their staff, or, in all seriousness, a glowing light in a spiraling, dark tunnel redemption by Shyamalan, cinephiles can appreciate the polished result as a splendid supernatural tale of suspense and intrigue. What really fueled this film from the moment the individuals entered the "car" was the constant high level of urgency that helped create the thick layer of tension laid over the course of the film. While the very ending of the film may leave something to be deserved, I enjoyed the "twist" for what it was - a formulaic connect-the-dots surprise. This is a film to see, especially if you think you have derailed the M. Night Express for good.
