Default 'Devil' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate Boss has reviewed 'Devil.' He says this isn't for everyone, but viewers may enjoy this simple but effective thriller. This Blu-ray features very troubled video, excellent audio, and some lame-o extras. Worth a look.

I really wanted to see this, and never got to the screening. I heard mixed things, but trust you Nate. I'll give it a look.

I want to see this as well, but I will wait for a price drop. Ridiculously priced for such a short movie, measly extras, and shoddy video.

I enjoyed this a lot. It's way better than I thought it was going to be. I'll wait for a massive price drop, though. I'm in no hurry.

I'm in the same boat with others -- really wanted to see it in theaters, but will now have to rent.

thanks for the review, nate!

A couple of years ago, like 6 now, youíd catch me singing his praises. 3 terrible movies later and Iíve given up on M. Night Shyamalan.

The trailer on this one just bores the hell out of me and the casting in looks horrendous.

Iíll still check it out though, one more round.

I wasn't the biggest fan of this movie -- it takes what should be a fun b-movie concept and turns it into a pretty boring experience. The movie runs roughly 1hr 20m and it felt a lot, lot longer than that. A lot of missed opprotunities for tension and intrigue, some pretty bland directing and a rather weak script overall.

Not terrible by any stretch but definitely rent it first.

I really liked the movie.
But man I was really hoping the home release would be a rated R version or something. They cut away on some of the kills in the movie to keep the gore down, though it might also be cause of budget contraints.

Also, the movie isnt directed by M night shymalan if thats what some people think.
