About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 SXSW
Best Screenplay Winner, 2023 Sitges Film Festival

October 31, 1977. Jack Delroy’s syndicated talk show “Night Owls” has long been a trusted companion to insomniacs around the country, but a year on from the tragic death of Jack’s wife, ratings have plummeted. Desperate to turn his fortunes around, Jack plans a Halloween special like no other, unaware he is about to unleash evil into the living rooms of America.

Late Night With The Devil (2024) is the recently rediscovered recording of what went to air that fateful night.

“Captures the chaotic energy of a late night show… It’s a clever trojan horse for a surprising horror movie that goes full throttle on unhinged demonic mayhem.”

—Meagan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting

About the filmmaker:

Colin and Cameron Cairnes are brothers who frequently team up as a writing/directing duo. The Cairnes Brothers’ debut feature, 100 Bloody Acres, was released in 2013 to rave reviews with Matt Zoller-Seitz at calling it “the best low budget horror-comedy since Shaun of the Dead.” The film won the Midnight X-treme Award at the Sitges Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor at the 2013 AACTAs – Australia’s Academy Awards. The brothers’ second feature, Scare Campaign, was released in 2016. This fresh and frightening take on the “slasher” collected four awards (including Best Film and Best Director) at Monsterfest, Australia’s premier horror movie festival. In 2019 the Cairnes Brothers were executive producers on Dark Place (2019), a horror anthology film written and directed by an exciting group of young Indigenous filmmakers. Late Night with the Devil, the duos’ third feature film, premiered at SXSW and won the award for Best Screenplay at Sitges Film Festival.
