AGC International will launch AFM sales next week on Sitges award-winner and supernatural thriller Late Night With The Devil from Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Spooky Pictures.
Australian genre mavericks Cameron and Colin Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres, Scare Campaign) were awarded the best screenplay prize for the film at Sitges earlier this month.
The narrative unfolds virtually in real time as the 1977 live broadcast of a late-night talk show unexpectedly turns from amusing to bizarre to deliciously sinister, unleashing evil into the nation’s living rooms. David Dastmalchian (Oppenheimer, The Suicide Squad) stars as the talk-show host. Umbrella Maslow Ahi is distributing the film in Australia and New Zealand, and Cinetic represents US rights.The filmpremiered at SXSW and has screened at Fantasia Festival in Montreal, Sydney Film Festival, Bifan in South Korea, Sitges, BFI London Film Festival, and Toronto After Dark, among others.
AGC head Stuart Ford said, “ Late Night With The Devil
is one of the freshest, most innovative lower budget scary movies I and the team have seen in many years and it’s been exhilarating to watch the film rapidly gather critical and audience momentum at major festivals over the past few months. We’re confident that distributors around the world are going to gobble this one up after its Halloween market screening.” The sales title marks the latest collaboration between AGC, Image Nation Abu Dhabi, and producer Roy Lee and Steven Schneider’s Spooky Pictures following Chloe Okuno’s 2022 Sundance breakout
