5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Man Walking, 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Devil's Business [DVD] (DVD)
!!!. WARNING. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. !!!

Two hitmen, the experienced, resigned Pinner and his naive, nervous accomplice Culley await the return of their target, named Kist, at his house, whiling away the time by bickering with eachother and Pinner relating a tale of terror to the increasingly scared Culley. However, it soon becomes apparent that Kist has been a bit of a devil, dabbling in the dark arts, as a pentagram and dead baby would bear witness to. Soon, the spider and the fly scenario is completely reversed as both men must face up to both their own inner demons and the very real ones that inhabit Kist's house......

Okay, 'The Devil's Business' could easily be summed up, and dismissed, as being a story about two grown men telling eachother scary stories as they await their grisly mission, but this excellent British horror has plenty of atmosphere and both gallows humour( 'Humunculus, is that Latin for bender or something?'), and genuine chills to ensure it holds the attention of its audience throughout the rather stately pace of its proceedings.
The most successful aspect of the story for me, is the dark tale that Pinner relates to his wet-behind-the ears colleague, a tale that will literally come back to bite him at the films climax. If Pinner thought he was just a cog in the machine at the start, it is only after a chat with Kist that he realises that he, like Culley, is merely a soldier ant.
Add to the great story some excellent use of light and shadows, an excellent music score and a top notch performance from Billy Wright as the haunted Pinner and the end result is a highly enjoyable foray into Satanic horror. Highly recommended.
