The Devil's Business (Hogan, 2011): Rio Cinema, 11.30pm
This screening is presented by the marvellous Cigarette Burns team. You
can find out more about them and this evening's entertainment at their Facebook page here.
Here is their introduction to the night: Premiered at Film4 Frightfest last August,
THE DEVIL'S BUSINESS garnered praise from across the spectrum, cementing
writer/director Sean Hogan as an up-and-coming British filmmaker. Referred to as "The House of the Devil meets Kill List" THE DEVIL'S
BUSINESS concerns two hitmen who may just have bitten off more than they
can chew, as their latest target returns home early from a night out at
the opera, and what was meant to be an easy hit takes an unexpectedly
horrific turn for the worst. Following the screening we welcome critic Kim Newman and film maker Sean Hogan on stage for a Q&A.
Here's a teaser poster and clip from the film.
