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
didn't catch my interest one bit
Them some noisy goddamn hitmen hey... movie was ok at best, could have been ALOT better...
Admittedly the special effects at the very end don't really stack up, but the journey was interesting and original enough that this one has stuck with me.
Really liked this one, was a new premise, not the tired old same stories. Ending was a little strange but still enjoyed it overall.
The premise over promises and the final product under delivers. Even with its slim runtime, The Devil’s Business is a tough slog. The lifeless patter between the two hit-men does its damndest to tranquillise, and given the pervading lack of quality, succumbing is probably for the best.
