Story: M. Night Shyamalan
Starring: Chris Messina, Logan Marshall-Green, Jenny O'Hara, Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Geoffrey Arend, Jacob Vargas and Matt Craven


In Philadelphia, Detective Bowden is still grieving for his wife and son, killed in a hit-and-run accident five years ago. When someone jumps from a skyscraper onto a truck, Bowden is sent to investigate. Meanwhile, five strangers are trapped in an elevator in the building where the jumper committed suicide. The communication radio in the elevator is broken but the guards, Lustig and Ramirez, observe the individuals via CCTV as events unfold.

Tensions run high among those trapped, so Lustig calls the police and Detective Bowden assumes the case. Without being able to contact the individuals, he tries to work out who they are but he can only account for four of them. Time is running out for the occupants of the elevator, as Bowden realizes he has to get them out quickly.

Richelieu and Rex van Rijn rescue Simon and another young initiate, Tanith Carlisle, from a devil worshipping cult. During the rescue they disrupt a ceremony on Salisbury Plain in which Satan himself appears. They escape to the home of Richard and Marie Eaton, friends of Richelieu and van Rijn, and are followed by the group's leader, Mocata, who has a psychic connection to the two initiates.

Myles Clarkson is a journalist and classical pianist on the rise who interviews and befriends a famous concert pianist Duncan Mowbray Ely, who's at death's door.

Unknown to Myles, Ely is a satanist, who arranges to have their souls switch places at his death so that he can be young again and continue to play the piano - thus needing a skilled pianist like Myles to exchange bodies with.

Further complications ensue when Myles' wife Paula discovers the change in her husband's behaviour and she is pulled deeper into Ely's twisted circle.

there's 3 childhood horror movies who gaved me the creeps as a youngster the 1st The Haunting (1963) at 7 or 8 y.o., 2nd The Last House Of The Left (1972) when i was 11 or 12 and The Devil's Triangle (1975) at 14 or 15 but i don't know if you will like it like i did but i can assure you that the two 1st one are good especially The Haunting but for the 3rd one i'm not sure because the last time i saw it was in the early 80's. : )
Edit: 4 years, 5 months ago

DW: The remake of The Haunting is on my Ghost Stories list. I haven't seen the original yet or the other 2 films you mentioned but I will try to do so. Thanks for the suggestions. :)
