PG-13 | | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
A group of people are trapped in an elevator and the Devil is mysteriously amongst them.
To promote the movie, director M. Night Shyamalan made a humorous parody video for the Internet, taking the premise of the movie, but instead having it take place on an escalator.
When I was a child, my mother would tell me a story about how the Devil roams the Earth. Sometimes, she said, he would take human form so he could punish the damned on Earth before claiming their souls. The ones he chose would be gathered together ...
9 minutes into the film, as the elevator door closes, the last Passenger puts his arm in the way to stop it, but it is not visible in the mirror. This reveals that, to avoid revealing the camera in the mirror, they superimposed video into the scene.
Upside down shots from a helicopter of a city as the opening credits roll.
