Must-See Horror: David Dastmalchian Dominates in Late Night With the Devil!


The Late Night with the Devil is being shown in cinemas:

David Dastmalchian has long been one of the most adorable little”freaks’ in movies and even although his name appears first on the credits for The Late Night With the Devil however, he has not lost his charm as actor. Incorporating films like Ghostwatch from the past, Ghostwatchand the recent popular The WNUF Halloween SpecialLate Night with the Devil will reveal the Halloween-themed broadcast of talk host Jack Delroy (Dastmalchian), who is determined to achieve stardom. Prior to that, he was the subject of an astronomical rise on the late-night scene, the film presents itself as the tape master of the specific show, in which Delroy is not the only one to bring psychic and skeptical characters to the show, but also psychologists and young women she’s working alongside who claim to be possessed by a demon. The savage introduction to the film’s entire plot explains the entire story in a short manner. It is helpful to know that Michael Ironside is the voice in the narration to ease some of the jarring parts.

The strength of the story that is evident within “Late Night With the Devilis the way in which the structure of the script/broadcast is able to balance making fun of the supernatural while also portraying the supernatural as credible. In a sense the film is left up to the viewer decide what’s happening until it suddenly goes full gas and has without brakes. With a small ensemble cast, The Late Night With the Devil is an ensemble film that flits between the supposed supernatural, the character of the show who’s quick to prove it wrong and the host of the show who is trying the best he can to get on up the TV ladder and make all the pieces work together for his advantage.

Dastmalchian’s Delroy portrays the best qualities of late-night comedians like Conan O’Brien, maintaining a hilarious self-deprecation, while being a bit unpredictable. The character proves Dastmalchian continues to work on his acting skills while anchored to the entire the narrative as the main character. He’s hilarious and charismatic and wit, but he also knows the right moment to show his dramatic skills. This is a fantastic performance from who we’ve come to see in bite-sized portions, but this time he’s presenting us with a the experience of an actor who’s alive and multi-layered.

Other standouts with Dastmalchian include Ian Bliss as Carmichael the Conjurer, a hypnotist who has become a skeptical, who has a solution to every trick that is on display and Ingrid Torelli as Lilly, the little girl who might or might not be possessed by a demon. Bliss is a distinct anchor to Dastmalchian’s character in that he keeps the audience on their toes about the truth behind what’s happening. Torelli plays the tangled waters of a girl who is forced to behave in a sexy way. It’s easy for one to go to the extreme when looking at that, however Torelli can deliver distinctive appearances and movements while performing her two parts.


If there’s one area in which The Late Night With the Devil is lacking (beyond the unintentional recourse to AI to create video images that would certainly have been designed by an artist who was human) it’s in interstitials that are found in each master’s “commercial breaks.” The most frequent problem with found-footage video of this sort is that the concept of why the camera’s operating is a question that hangs over the plot throughout the film and it’s virtually impossible to ignore the question when these scenes happen. Character beats that are significant do occur in these scenes, and they’re not completely devoid of value or plot However, they take viewers out of the whole movie, making it mostly fluid, making these sequences quite unique.


One thing is certain as with the additional “broadcast” horror movies you’ll discover in the world, Late Night With the Devil encourages repeat watching. Once you’ve watched it entirety, any further viewing of it will only improve it in the sense that it will prove that the majority of pieces fell into place exactly where they did due to reasons and that a certain images are more frequent than you thought and is woven into the whole DNA of the movie. Similar to Twin Peaks, the owls don’t look as they appear to be.

For those who love horror, there is a pattern that is familiar in the midst of Late Night with the Devil The execution is what makes the film interesting and in the majority of cases intriguing. Although some scenes defy the overall illusion but it is the case that the vast majority of film focuses on the aesthetics of a certain type and production value that makes it appear real. When it’s needed, Late Night with the Devil strikes a perfect harmony between old-fashioned prosthetic effects as well as some contemporary CGI that is properly adjusted to remain of the time and works in concert to give viewers something fresh and original.
