Ahi has revealed the first-look teaser trailer for LATE NIGHT WITH THE DEVIL.
Written and directed by Colin and Cameron Cairns (100 Bloody Acres, Scare Campaign) and starring David Dastmalchian (Oppenheimer, Dune, The Dark Knight) alongside Laura Gordon, Ian Bliss, Fayssal Bazzi, Ingrid Torelli, Rhys Auteri, Georgina Haig and Josh Quong Tart.
Receiving its world premiere at SXSW 2023, the break-out horror is killing it with both audiences and critics alike, currently enjoying a 100% rating on review aggregator, Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s 31 October, 1977. Johnny Carson rival, Jack Delroy, is the host of ‘Night Owls’, a once hugely popular syndicated talk show. A year on from the tragic death of Jack’s wife, ratings have plummeted, and sponsors are getting nervous. Desperate to turn his fortunes around, Jack pulls out all the stops for his annual Halloween special, booking a psychic, a professional skeptic, a parapsychologist and a young girl allegedly possessed by the devil… What could possibly go wrong?
Writer-director duo Colin and Cameron Cairnes craft a suspenseful narrative that unfolds mostly in real time, as the ‘Night Owls’ broadcast makes surprising turns from the amusing to the bizarre to the deliciously sinister. In his first major lead role, Dastmalchian brings compelling charisma and gravitas to the character of Jack Delroy. At its core Late Night With The Devil is a tale about the cult of personality and the price of fame…with plenty of supernatural thrills along the way.
The film is produced by Future Pictures’ Mat Govoni, Adam White, and John Molloy, Spooky Pictures’ Roy Lee and Steven Schneider, and Image Nation’s Derek Dauchy, with the assistance of VicScreen, and development support from VicScreen and Screen Australia. Production investment from Maslow Umbrella Ahi Entertainment.
The nightmarish ode to the talk shows of the 70s is set to arrive in cinemas on April 11, 2024. The film will be theatrically distributed by Ahi.
