The Devil's Business

The Devil's Business

Directed by Sean Hogan

Two hit men are sent to murder an old associate of their underworld boss. But things are not all what they seem in their quarry’s house and the discovery of a make-shift black magic altar - and its shocking sacrifice - sends the uncomprehending duo into the shadowy darkness of their own tortured souls and terrifying confrontations with their worst primal fears. Brilliantly acted, solidly crafted and exuding a palpable atmosphere of claustrophobic dread, this eerily effective gem announces the arrival of director Sean Hogan on the genre’s front-line. Contains strong language, violence and gore.

A pair of hit men find occult shocks at the home of their latest target.

Cast: Billy Clarke, Jack Gordon, Jonathan Hansler

It's alright. Not terrible, but not terribly memorable either. It has an interesting premise, but it feels more like a stage play than a film.

I picked this film based on the fact that it's just over an hour long. It actually really surprised me! I think the device of an unwilling protagonist makes you feel like you're being dragged along for the ride, no matter what, and that adds to the suspense and unease. I don't think the supernatural stuff was too overdone, just a sobering reminder that there are things bigger than a "big man."

I picked this film as a late-night watch based on the fact that it's just over an hour long.

So, so, so, so much longer than it needed to be. Tarantino length conversations with none of the character, suspense, humour etc. Just dreary, self indulgent and worst of all boring for almost all of it
