Devil's Night unlocks a gate to Hell on iTunes

Devil's Night Todd Bishop

The new film DEVIL'S NIGHT came out of writer/producer Derek Rethwisch's desire to make a movie in the vein of HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH. He chose a notable date - Devil's Night, October 30th - and built a "suspenseful, character-driven" story around that date. Within that story is a character Rethwisch describes as the film's own "Michael Myers", a character named Evan Lesky.

To make the film more relevant to modern audiences, Rethwisch put Lesky up against a very 21st century sort of protagonist; someone who is desperate to achieve fame and fortune through viral videos.

The resulting story has the following synopsis: 

Daniel, a charismatic teen from a broken home, wants nothing more than to get out of the trailer park. After scraping together just enough money to buy a video camera, he begins making YouTube videos in the hope that his antics will lead him to a better life. But when his videos fail to catch on and all his friends leave for college, Daniel's left all alone. Undeterred, he discovers an old documentary about a serial killer who brutally murdered seven people in a Satanic sacrifice not too far from his hometown. Thinking this might be his last chance for success, he decides to film a video in the killer's house, only to summon an evil worse than anything he could have possibly imagined...

Directed by Todd Bishop, DEVIL'S NIGHT stars Adam Forrest, Elizabeth Peterson, Alex Ho, Nolan Freeman, Kristina Cohen, Shani Atias, and Kevin Grossman.

The film is now available exclusively through iTunes, and a trailer has been released online to help you decide if it's something you would like to rent or own.

Rethwisch's hope is that DEVIL'S NIGHT

is both an homage to those iconic movies (HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH) but also unique in its portrayal of modern life."
