LATE NIGHT WITH THE DEVIL

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HE SACRIFICED TO GET HERE

THEATRICAL REVIEW
By Charlie David Page
7th April 2024

31 October, 1977. Johnny Carson rival, Jack Delroy, is the host of 'Night Owls', a once hugely popular syndicated talk show. A year on from the tragic death of Jack's wife, ratings have plummeted and sponsors are getting nervous. Desperate to turn his fortunes around, Jack pulls out all the stops for his annual Halloween special, booking a psychic, a professional sceptic, a parapsychologist and a young girl allegedly possessed by the devil... What could possibly go wrong?

Writer-director duo Colin and Cameron Cairnes craft a suspenseful narrative that unfolds mostly in real time, as the 'Night Owls' broadcast makes surprising turns from the amusing to the bizarre to the deliciously sinister. In his first major lead role, David Dastmalchian brings compelling charisma and gravitas to the character of Jack Delroy. At its core Late Night With The Devil is a tale about the cult of personality and the price of fame...with plenty of supernatural thrills along the way.
