What are your thoughts on the new horror movie coming out called 'Devil'?

Based on the television commercials, there are scenes of people trapped in an elevator in a high rise building and the lights go out, and there's like a demon in there with them terrorizing them.

It looks scary. But what I'm curious about is whether you think such a movie entitled 'Devil' could actually have a negative impact on people?

I heard someone on a radio show before say that if a movie was made with the name of a demon being made known to a large enough audience, then it could give that demon power in the physical world. Do you think that this movie 'Devil' could be spiritually harmful?

I'm usually okay with horror movies, but I'm not sure I want to see this movie.

Update:

Mother Superior - the radio show was Coast to Coast.

    "I heard someone on a radio show before say that if a movie was made with the name of a demon being made known to a large enough audience, then it could give that demon power in the physical world."

    That's a metaphysical concept known as thoughtforms.

    I don't agree with it myself, and I'm left wondering what radio show even contemplated such rubbish.

    *edit*

    Ah, thanks for letting me know.

    Movies are only fiction created by playful minds of people. Movies sometimes leads us sometime disturbing our faith , but the purpose of this is not to put our beliefs on it. They just want to entertain people in the wrong way.
