You probably have been in a similar predicament sometime or other, except of course you have never encountered a devil while stuck on an elevator. It does get spooky, not just the scenes, but the music too, there’s a lot of darkness, and you cannot but just wait for the next sequence of events, until your 90 minutes is up and you find all is fine.

Within a few minutes of the film you have a loud bang on the speakers that reveal a man who has jumped to his death from an anonymous Philadelphia office block. Detective Bowden (Chris Messina) is still recuperating from the loss of his wife and son who were killed five years ago, is called to investigate.
Just as he takes on the case, another tragedy occurs. An elevator is stuck between floors that has five strangers, a young mechanic (Logan Marshall-Green), a fashionable foxy young woman (Bojana Novakovic), an old woman (Jenny O’Hara), a mattress salesman (Geoffrey Arend), and one of the building’s temp security guards (Bokeem Woodbine). 

The elevator is monitored by two security guards Ramirez (Jacob Vargas) and Lustig (Matt Craven), who handle the CCTVs and keep in touch with the five trapped, through sign language, as the camera’s audio is malfunctioning. But every time the lights flicker and go out on the elevator, one of the strangers is killed in a brutal manner. Ramirez the Catholic guard warns of the devil’s work at hand and informs Bowden, who washes the idea away, not knowing that it could be true.

While investigating through the CCTVs, Bowden realises that all five strangers have guilty secrets, and one of them relates to his own traumatic past.

This chilling, supernatural thriller from M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs) will keep you on the edge of your seat with an anti-climax.
