With the news that Shudder and Vertigo Releasing confirmed the release of the upcoming horror, Late Night with the Devil, in UK Cinemas on 22nd March, we took the chance to check out what looks like a terrifying movie.

In 1977 a live television broadcast goes horribly wrong, unleashing evil into living rooms across the United States.

The film stars David Dastmalchian (Dune, The Dark Knightas Jack Delroy, host of a late-night talk show. On Halloween night 1977 havoc unfolds when Delroy interviews a parapsychologist and the subject of her recent book, a young teenager who is the sole survivor of a Satanic church’s mass suicide.

Late Night with the Devil starts with an introduction to a bit of back story about Jack Delroy (Dastmalchian) and his TV show, plus the loss of his wife. Delroy returns to his late-night slot and we are told that what we are about to see is a recording of the show.

The production of Late Night with the Devil is very nicely done from the introduction section of the movie to the show itself which feels and looks like the time it is based on, Dastmalchian is great in the role of Delroy bringing the character to life on the screen perfectly.

The movie is certainly no run-of-the-mill horror and it certainly sets you up with some of the best scares that I’ve seen in an indie movie for a long time and they are so nicely done. I’ve been watching a lot of horror releases in the cinema lately, but I have to say that Late Night with the Devil is the one that has made the hair stand up on the back of my neck and make me jump from the edge of my seat.

The slow build-up is what sets you up for the shocks, there are some comical moments that you would see on a chat show of this type, such as the medium that the host and audience ridicule until he comes upon two women in the audience and touches on their loss, then shortly after things start to take turn for the worse.

As the movie moves along it gets more and more into the realm of strange and horror, once we get to the parapsychologist and the young teenager you are feeling at unease with the way the movie is going and now if you are on the edge of your seat already you start edging closer to the screen and the sense of fear rising.

As I mentioned earlier Late Night with the Devil has some great shocks and this is a movie that any horror fan will want to see and to see on a big screen in a cinema with plenty of other horror fans to enjoy the superb jump scares that don’t just rely on those loud bang noises that others seem to overuse lately.

I’m hoping now that my local Cineworld will be showing Late Night with the Devil when it is released in UK Cinemas on the 22nd of March.

Late Night with the Devil stars David Dastmalchian, Laura Gordon, Ian Bluss, Fayssal Bazzi and Ingrid Torelli. The movie is directed & written by Cameron Cairnes and Colin Cairnes.
