A 1970s late night talk show goes to hell in this fiendish horror-thriller.
Following their 2012 horror comedy 100 Bloody Acres, The Cairnes brothers return with a diabolically sharp satire honed with scares and pitch-perfect period style. It’s the seventies, and suave late night talk show host Jack Delroy (David Dastmalchian) ambitiously chases Johnny Carson in the ratings race. On the anniversary of his wife’s death, he presents a Halloween special featuring a clairvoyant, a paranormal investigator and a satanic cult survivor. The show steadily and literally goes to hell. Framed within the episode broadcast and behind the scenes glimpses, Late Night with the Devil opens a portal directly to the inferno of mass entertainment.
“It’s absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.” (Stephen King)
“An exquisite study of human folly, both individual and collective, Late Night With The Devil makes its audience complicit but finds tragedy, and room for sympathy, in the fall.” (Eye for Film)
