A poster has been unveiled for the 1977-set horror film Late Night With the Devil, starring David Dastmalchian
Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Spooky Pictures have teamed up to produce the horror film Late Night With the Devil, headed up by the Australian writing and directing duo of Colin and Cameron Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres) and starring David Dastmalchian – whose previous credits include The Boogeyman and The Suicide Squad. The film is currently making the festival rounds, and while it’s not yet known when a wider audience will have a chance to see it, our friends at Bloody Disgusting have gotten their hands on a poster for it. You can check it out at the bottom of this article.
Late Night With the Devil is a “supernatural chiller” that tells the story of the live broadcast of a late-night talk show in 1977 that goes horribly wrong, unleashing evil into the nation’s living rooms. Dastmalchian plays Jack Delroy, the host of the show Night Owls.
Colin and Cameron Cairnes provided the following statement: “In the ’70s and ’80s there was something slightly dangerous about late-night TV. Talk shows in particular were a window into some strange adult world. We thought combining that charged, live-to-air atmosphere with the supernatural could make for a uniquely frightening film experience.”
Spooky Pictures was founded by It producer Roy Lee and the Paranormal Activity franchise’s Steven Schneider. They are producing Late Night With the Devil alongside John Molloy, Derek Dauchy, and Future Pictures’ Mat Govoni and Adam White. Dastmalchian serves as an executive producer with Rami Yasin and Lake Mungo director Joel Anderson.
I’m a big fan of Dastmalchian, so Late Night With the Devil is one of my most highly anticipated horror releases of the year. Cinetic Media holds the North American distribution rights, while the worldwide rights are in the hands of AGC International.
In addition to the films mentioned above, Dastmalchian’s credits include The Dark Knight, Prisoners, Ant-Man, The Belko Experiment, Gotham, Twin Peaks, Blade Runner 2049, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Bird Box, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, MacGyver, The Flash, Batman: The Long Halloween, All Creatures Here Below, What If…?, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Dune. He is also the creator of the Count Crowley comic book series and plays a horror host character called Dr. Fearless.
