Psychological Three’s a Crowd Thriller, “THE DEVIL’S BARGAIN” Online TomorrowMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
UK-based director Drew Cullingham seems to have taken the old-fashioned “three’s a crowd” thriller and filtered it through a psychedelic, frenzied haze in THE DEVIL’S BARGAIN, a film that wants to let you know up front(al) about its bare skin. Available to rent/stream online as of Friday, January 17, you can see a trailer for this end-0f-the-world period piece below.
In THE DEVIL’S BARGAIN, “It’s 1974 and Earth is about to be obliterated by a massive asteroid. Adi (Jonnie Hurn) and his young wife Ange (Chloe Farnworth), haunted by memories of the death of their son, journey to the idyllic rural setting where he was conceived, determined to shed clothes, inhibitions and psychological traumas before the planet is destroyed forever. But the arrival of Luca (Dan Burman), a charismatic and mysterious young photographer, turns what’s left of their world upside-down and the horror to come is of biblical proportions.”
Shot almost entirely with a pinhole technique that looks to really up the out-there vibe, THE DEVIL’S BARGAIN is certainly a curiosity and looks to be one of the first intriguing horror films of 2014. You can see THE DEVIL’S BARGAIN beginning tomorrow, Friday, January 17 at Distrify for $6.69, or £3.99 in the UK.
