Sounds scary right? Well, not really.
Think back to the summertime when you first saw the preview to this movie. You remember where you were. You were sitting in the theater, getting ready for Inception to start.
(Side note: if this doesn't ring a bell, there is something disturbingly wrong with you)
Anyways, you were probably a little intrigued until you saw the phase, "From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan"
Then you probably laughed, or as I said, "Next"
It's true, Shyamalan is pretty awful....but the good thing is, he only wrote this movie, he did not direct it.

Okay, okay, on to the review. Basically, this movie involves 5 people who end up on the same elevator at an office building. We soon learn that all of them have a shady past. As we hear a narrator explain, every now and then, the Devil takes the form of a human to torment those that are not living right. All kinds of craziness happens in that elevator, but for me, it wasn't that scary. It was interesting in parts and creepy in others, but overall, not the scariest movie I've seen.

In the end, there is a good message to this movie, although you wouldn't catch that from the previews. The movie moves quickly, and at only 80 minutes, you won't be in the theater for too long. Overall, I would say that you should see this movie...but maybe just rent it. It's definitely better than Shyamalan's last 3 movies, but it's not quite like his first. Oh, and watch out for the devil.

you know, i loved "the sixth sense" and thought the look of "the village" was great, but the long and painful decline of shamylan is just depressing.

we saw a trailer for "the last airbender" the other night and the hubbers said: "everything about this trailer makes it seem like this would be the awesomest movie ever, but you just know it won't be."

Night Syamalan has come up with a strong and interesting story. The plot looks so simple at the beginning, but it moves on, suspense unveils in a scary, yet logical fashion. The linking between all characters is portrayed in a very effective way. Nice blog provided.
