Director John E Dowdle (Quarantine) and screenwriter Brian Nelson (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night) tackle the first instalment of The Night Chronicles, a film series in which up-and-coming film-makers bring to life stories conceived by M Night Shyamalan.
Devil opens as five Philadelphia office workers file into the lift of an office building.
A security guard - who can see, but not hear, what's going on in the suspended box - tries to convince the cop on the case (Chris Messina) that one of the passengers is the Devil, taking human form in his quest to collect sinners.
As emergency workers frantically try to open the lift, secrets are revealed and the five realise that their only hope for survival is to confess their darkest sins in front of the others.
