Two contract killers, a veteran and a rookie, are on their way to their next target, an old relative of their boss. As the eldest recounts one of the most twisted events of his career, their mission suddenly takes an unexpected turn. With its efficient dialogues and sharp directing skills favoring the atmosphere to cheap in-your-face effects, Sean Hogan manages with little means to deliver a very effective movie, oscillating between film noir and occult horror. His plot, reminiscent of the excellent «Kill List» (2011) by Ben Wheatley, has a unique and British personality that is emphasized by the unity of time, place and action. Sean Hogan directed his debut «Lie Still» in 2005 and then shot one of the segment of the anthology film «Little Deaths» (2011). «The Devil's Business» is his second feature film.

«[...] smart, capable, low-budget British horror, providing a lesson in doing more with less» Philip French, «The Observer».
