Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Devil.

Other filmmakers also put characters in confined spaces and let the tensions play out. In Lifeboat, a group of survivors from a sunken passenger ship discover the best and worst in each other while surrounded by miles of empty ocean. A jury of 12 Angry Men cramped in a hot courthouse struggle against one another while trying to come to an agreement on the fate of an accused criminal. When a mother wakes to find her daughter missing while flying over the ocean, she determines to search every inch of the limited space in the airplane in Flightplan.

A more gentle and inspirational lesson on forgiveness is found in the made-for-TV movie Amish Grace, based on the true story of a close-knit community that puts their religious beliefs into practice when a killer murders their children.
