Reviews

A terrifying blend of twisted occult horror and hard-as-nails British gangster.

The hitman's working day can often be a dangerous affair. But when two hardened East End assassins find themselves embroiled in the dark, deadly mysteries of the occult their job gets that much harder.

I have to say that when this film got glowing reviews on the prime website splattered all over the cover, I was excited at another character-led film like Kill List (which was a great film) so looked forward to settling down to some good psychological and unsettling horror.

At only 70 minutes long, it seemed a good bet....

Then I watched it and quite honestly it's one of the worst films I've ever seen for a number of reasons:

a) Acting - whereas Kill List had the two leading characters very well portrayed, the acting between the characters in this film is dire - the dippy one is so dippy that you wouldn't ask him to make a cup of tea (in case he spilled it), let alone send him to kill someone. Also the 'Mr Big' criminal who sent them is so cliched as a gangster, it's cringing to watch.

b) Script - Much of the film is taken up by a completely pointless back story about a girl in a nightclub and goes on and on and on and on...yawn. When the 'action' begins and I use the term loosely, the film is on such a shoestring that they can't afford special effects and so it's all shot from outside with Dippy acting as though he's being terrorised by something but not very convincingly.

c) Ending - The ending is hilariously bad with such poor special effects and poor acting throughout.

Summary - Devil's Business?? Dog's Business more like - I'm only writing this review cause I'm gobsmacked people have given this 5 stars...

Tedious, dry and very very s-l-o-w. To be honest, this movie was so poor I dont have the will or the strength to even write a review about it - that's how disappointed I feel. Once again, I am very suspicious of the rave reviews which are now common for these micro-budget independent films where the makers stand to gain a lot from views on Amazon because they stand no hope o DVD sales or Cinema releases.

I can't write a great deal about this little gem of a horror movie as the film is very short but i shall write a bit of how good this is.
The story is about two hit men who wait at the house owned by their target but while their in the dark house things start to happen as odd things occur.We hear the older of the two tell the younger a creepy story which is the highlight of the film.As the film goes on towards its conclusion they venture out the house when they hear something outside,different horror genres are mixed into the plot and there is a spectacular ending which i won't give away but it is a nerve wracking last few moments i can tell you.
The acting is truly top notch and even though there is only five actors in the whole film it is very good.The chemistry between the two leads actors is magic with the older hit man very sarcastic and very funny whilst the younger guy even though he is put down by his mentor and is a bit dumb he does care about his older friend and they do get on even when strange things begin to happen,i really do think they are a great double act and there are plenty of laughs.
As a horror film it takes a while into the film to get scary but believe me it is chilling when it arrives and as i said the last 10 or so minutes is gripping stuff even if a bit gory and i'm not a huge fan of gore and works better as a jumpy film than a gory one.
I really can't think of any negatives apart from too much blood and gore and maybe could be a bit longer as it crams it all in in a short time but its such a cracker its just small niggles really.
A underrated British horror gem.

Please will people stop writing 'that's minutes of my life wasted that I won't get back', it is a bit childish. If you hate a film that much, turn it off. If you get tuned in to this movie, its a little cracker, but if you don't then it may well be a turn off. I would not compare Devils Business at all with Hit List, this is something very different. Yes it has a lot of dialogue, and maybe not much action, but I found it rippling with tension, and the trade off with the 2 leads was great. The tension was built nicely, and although a couple of scenes were a bit off the wall, this was a good watch for me.

This is a film of unrealised potential. In print, it sounds compelling.. but watching it.. it was so bad I've given up after 50 minutes. Absolutely terrible character design.. the "novice" oh my good what can I say? I MADE myself watch it until he got killed, and even it was atrociously enacted. dont bother with this one, seriously. A better screenplay, better dialogue better characters.. then it may of been ok. Like I said, the most compelling thing about the movie is the premise. It all goes down hill from there. Sorry to have panned this film, I dont like to do so.. but.. there you go.

Some good acting and a pretty good story make for a fairly creepy movie.Comes with a directors commentary which is always welcome.Worth a view if it comes down in price.

This is surprisingly involving, quite theatrical in parts as has been said, bit a well observed and executed piece of horror. It is intrinsically British, intelligent, and a triumph. The horror effects are left to the imagination, and the final scenes were albeit predictable but nonetheless unsettling, in all rather reminiscent of late 60s to mid 70s psychological movies of this genre such as Don't Look Now, or indeed Rosemary's Baby as previously suggested. Shlock horror fans won't like this, but it is worth a watch.
