Now showing on cable: “Devil”

“Devil” is making it rounds on HBO.

Dont let the stink of M Night Shaymalan fool you! This movie is actually pretty fun.

The premise sounds like the setup for a joke, or some kind of riddle. “Four people and the Devil get stuck in an elevator…”

Once the Devil starts killing people off, though (done as the lights sporadically go out so no one can tell who done it) the movie gets creepy and cool. Meanwhile, powerless cops and security guards watch the action unfold over closed circuit tv and try to figure out who the killer is. Its like a claustrophobic “And Then There Were None”.

There’s worse movies than this one… I give it a B- !
