Late Night with the Devil

Feels like something you might have stumbled upon while flipping channels five decades ago, only a lot scarier and laced with potent black humor.


Late Night with the Devil

October 31, 1977. Johnny Carson rival Jack Delroy hosts a syndicated talk show ‘Night Owls’ that has long been a trusted companion to insomniacs around the country. A year after the tragic death of Jack’s wife, ratings have plummeted. Desperate to turn his fortunes around, Jack plans a Halloween special like no other, unaware he is about to unleash evil into the living rooms of America.

"Late Night with the Devil employs a very clever real-time, found footage format, unfolding like you’re watching an old episode of ‘70s TV... taking us back in time, locking us in a single set, and unleashing Hell, sometimes quite literally."

"Although I’ve loved numerous performances from Dastmalchian, his work as Jack Delroy might be the most intricate and impressive performance of his career." -Blood Brothers

"The Cairnes have created an endlessly intriguing and beguiling gem of a film that not only is a hauntingly joyous watch, but also is a cerebral exercise leaving us with much to think about in our roles as consumers of media. Late Night with the Devil is smart, funny, and challenging, everything the typical and palatable, kitschy late-night talk show isn’t, and what a blessing that is!" -Film Daze
