Top critics gave new ‘Devil’ movie mediocre reviews so far. Universal Pictures released their new horror/thriller flick “Devil” into theaters today,and the top critics have given it pretty mediocre reviews so far. Only three critics have reviewed it at the moment.
It looks like they were shut out from early reviews of the film. It’s garnered a few C ratings from the top critics,and stars: Chris Messina, Geoffrey Arend, Logan Marshall-Green, Bojana Novakovic, Jenny O’Hara, Bokeem Woodbine,and Jacob Vargas.
John P. McCarthy at Box Office Magazine gave it a C+. He said, “There are a sufficient number of jolts thanks to quick edits and sound effects, plus the script’s efficient structure.” Adam Markovitz over at Entertainment Weekly gave it another C+ rating. He stated, “A pocket-size supernatural thriller that plays a bit like Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians retold by an unstable Sunday School teacher.”
Roger Moore from the Orlando Sentinel gave it a C rating. He stated, “Devil is the sort of story Rod Serling would have taken for a spin in The Twilight Zone, back in the day. Shyamalan came up with the idea, produced it and got others to script and direct this 76 minute exercise in movie minimalism.”
