(Also out this week, check out The Town, an Oscar hopeful directed by and starring Ben Affleck [Gone Baby Gone], about a Bostonian bank robber trying to change his ways after he falls in love. The film also stars Jeremy Renner [The Hurt Locker], Jon Hamm [Mad Men], and Rebecca Hall [Vicky Cristina Barcelona]. Looks to be one of the better dramas out this season.)

Is the devil among us? Apparently, as evidenced by the new horror movie being released today, called... Devil. Evidently the king of all evil likes to reside in crowded elevators, playing on people's fears and suspicions and driving them to terrible acts. It's even worse than when someone farts. The story follows five strangers stuck in an elevator as weird things start happening and they come to the conclusion that one of them must be the devil himself. It's being advertised as an M. Night Shyamalan film, but the famous director really just writes and produces this piece. The director is a no-name, as is most of the cast, which is smart- it allows the viewers to focus on the story, which promises suspense and mind-bending intrigue. Whether or not it delivers has yet to be seen.
