The Devil's Business

Production Year: 2011
Release Date: 10/14/2014
Studio: Mondo Macabro
Director: Sean Hogan



Mondo Macabro's second foray into high definition is a good one!  A bit different for a company steeped in older genre films, this time they're rollin' out the red carpet for a modern film, Sean Hogan's 2011 production The Devil's Business.  Two hit men break into a house to carry out what should be a relatively easy job; taking out one man.  But unfortunately for veteran hitman Pinner (Billy Clarke) this is no ordinary job, making matters worse is the inexperienced "new guy" he's stuck with (Cully; Jack Gordon) who doesn't seem to do anything right.



The two camp out in the quite house waiting for a man name Kist (Jonathan Hansler) to return, as the hours pass they confide in one another sharing various stories about the job.  Eventually Kist shows up and with a quick shot to the head business is done.  Or is it?  The bumbling Cully leaves his watch behind, when the two go back to retrieve it they find that Kist's body is gone.  Could this be the work of a rival gang or something a little more supernatural?  


The Devil's Business is a very moody film that relies on shadows, tension, and mystery to deliver the horror as opposed to the more common "jump scares."  Billy Clarke is PHENOMENAL in his role as the "been there, done that" aging hitman and Jack Gordon does his best to keep up playing the somewhat sympathetic (and slightly pathetic) Cully.  The direction is tight and the cinematography is very reminiscent of the Italian horror films of yore with a palette of lush reds blues.  The Devil's Business was a real surprise, it's a very atmospheric film with an extremely strange yet satisfying climax.


The Devil's Business looks and sounds excellent.  The film mainly takes place in a very dark house, as such you can image there's a lot of black.  Thankfully the black levels are right on target and there's a surprising amount of detail in the picture.  The audio available is a Dolby Digital 5.1 HD track.  The mix is nice and even with a solid balance between the soundtrack and the dialogue.
