''Devil'' is a 2010 {{film}} {{inspired by}} the novel ''AndThenThereWereNone'' by Creator/AgathaChristie. It's the first part of ''The Night Chronicles'' trilogy, a series of films created and outlined (but neither written nor directed) by Creator/MNightShyamalan that deal with the supernatural in a modern-day urban setting. Advertisements for the film played up Shyamalan's involvement at first.

* TwistEnding: As usual for Creator/MNightShyamalan. The lights come back on to show [[spoiler: Tony standing among the bodies and staring at the camera while Sarah chokes on her own blood...and then he drops to his knees to try to save her, and the [[FakingTheDead "dead"]] old woman gets back up, her eyes [[BlackEyesOfEvil pitch black]].]]
