Synopsis of Devil Movie:

‘Devil’ is a clever and creepy story about good, evil, fate and faith. The movie begins with Ramirez is a security guard and storyteller during the movie and saying that when he was a boy his mother told him a stories about the Devil’s Meeting while the Devil appears and tortures sinners before taking them to Hell, and that it would always start with suicide.
At the end of the stories is that the detective solves the case. The case is about a guy who lost his wife and kid after a drunk driver hit them.

In this movie, one is a contract killer, one is a thief, one is a black widow scam artist, one is businessman who stole from people and one is the drunk driver that killed the cop’s family which is the big twist of the movie.

Actually, the old lady is a Devil in this movie who fakes her death in the middle of the film and reveals herself at the end (a predictable twist).

The moral of the story is that if there is a Devil then there is God. They both are at work bringing these people all together – the devil wants the souls of the sinners and god want them to redeem themselves. The drunk driver guy is thе last tο gο and аѕ thе devil comes fοr hіm hе confesses hіѕ sins аnd accepts hіѕ punishment. God accepts hіѕ repentance аnd ѕο thе Devil саnnοt take hіm. Thе cop (whο lost hіѕ faith) comes face tο face wіth thе man hе’s hаtеd аnd accepts god back іntο hіѕ heart bу forgiving thе man. Faith restored. The main point in this story, that no one is the “Devil” іn thе elevator.
