The Devil - Movie Thoughts

While I haven't seen it, I recently watched a trailer for the new film "The Devil" out in theaters and I couldn't help but think how different the film would be if the characters, at least one of the characters, had one simple tool. Can you guys guess what it is? I'll give you a hint... it's in the Blog title.

Yup, that's right, a flashlight. I'm actually surprised that one of the characters, a security guard, doesn't have a flashlight on his person.

Even the humble FOURSEVENS Quark Mini MA
can take on the Devil.
From what I understand, the movie is about 5 people who get on an elevator. While they're going up, the elevator gets stuck and weird things start to happen. The power goes out on the elevator, leaving everything pitch black, and then people start getting hurt, some of them even dying. Judging by the name of the film, one of the characters is the Devil or some other monster and attacks the people while the lights are out.

Just think how silly the movie would be if one of the characters had a Quark Pro QPL (formerly the Quark 123), or even a simple little Quark Mini MA (formerly the Quark Mini AA). There would be no movie, at least it wouldn't be as suspenseful.

Imagine this: The lights go out in the elevator and the security guard busts out his Maelstrom MMS (formerly the Maelstrom G5) on Max mode, illuminating the whole place with 420 lumens of light. The elevator is now brighter than it was with the lights on. The people quickly tackle the "Devil" and in 15 minutes, the movie is over.

It's the same thing that would happen if one of the victims in a slasher movie had a 12 gauge.

So, the moral of the story is, always carry a flashlight with you. You never know when you'll have to scare away the Devil.
