We are in for an absolutely unique horror experience.

Imagine the '70s, a time when evening TV hosts competed for viewers' attention. Jack Delroy is one of those hosts, but he can't beat his competitor's show in popularity.

Searching for an idea that will put him on the top of the industry, Jack and his producers decide to host a Halloween special filled with mysticism and occult phenomena.

The show brings together guests representing different aspects of the supernatural: a medium, a skeptic, a paranormal investigator, and even a girl who was the victim of Satanists. But when Jack tries to use them to boost ratings, things spiral out of control and the show turns into a nightmare.

Late Night With the Devil Was Approved by Stephen King

This is the premise of Late Night With the Devil, a film that viewers have only seen at genre festivals. The screening was also sent to Stephen King, and this is how he reacted to the new horror:

"It's absolutely brilliant. I couldn't take my eyes off it. Your results may vary, as they say, but I urge you to watch it when you can."

Sounds intriguing, isn’t it?

Late Night With the Devil currently has an impressive 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is the first reason to pay attention to this horror movie.

Late Night With the Devil I Is a Unique Genre Example in an Unusual Setting

The second reason is the lead actor – David Dastmalchian. You may have noticed the actor in big hits like Dune, Oppenheimer, and The Suicide Squad, but he was mostly given supporting roles. And mostly villainous ones, which he handled brilliantly.

So we can expect that the role of a host who is willing to do anything for ratings will be another clear proof of the actor's talent.

Besides, how many horror movies have you seen in a talk show setting? Late Night With the Devil promises to be a unique experience where the audience will see not only what happens on stage, but also what happens behind the scenes, including candid moments and conflicts between characters.

And in the best tradition of modern horror, which avoids scaring the audience only with jump scares and creepy monsters, Late Night With the Devil (judging by the trailer) will provide a deep dive into the psychology of the characters and their desire for success at any cost.

When Will Late Night With the Devil Be Released?

Late Night With the Devil will be in theaters on March 22nd and will be available for streaming on Shudder on April 19th.
