review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mickey (Ben Silver) has been working as a hitman for most of his adult life, and has gotten quite good at it, too - but now that he's got a wife and kid, that's all behing him now ... or so he thinks, because Mickey's a bit of a gambler, and over time has ammassed a healthy debt with ruthless bosswoman Chaofeng (Crystal J. Huang), who eventually sends her right-hand man Carlos (John Altman) over to strike a deal: Mickey has to perform one more hit, and then he's free of all debt - and frankly Mickey hasn't got much choice but to accept. However, when he arrives at his intended target (Jack Easton), he finds the man already murdered. But at his house, he also stumbles across a woman, Teri (Amanda Himsworth), who promptly threatens him with a gun - but not because she's in any relation to the murdered man, just because she thinks he's one of "them" - them being a group of Satanists she claims have the house under siege. Mickey doesn't believe her, however she forces him to stay the night at the house. Eventually, she's even joined by her husband (Jimmy "The Bee" Bennett) ... and then they're both killed by the Satanists. Enter Charlotte (Amber Doig-Thorne) who promptly threatens Mickey with a knife - but she also fills him in on some of the details regarding the Satanists, basically that they're in the business of raising demons. Not that Mickey believes any of this - but plenty happens between then and sun-up that convinces Mickey otherwise. But will he live to tell the tale?


Now here's quite an original take on genre filmmaking, as it starts out like your typical (well-told) gangster flick and only gradually enters horror territory, but without ever loosening in tension of make the genre shift in the least feel forced. And a suspense-heavy directorial effort sure helps here, as it keeps things tight even when things turn a little ridiculous - ridiculous in comparison to the down-to-earth beginning of course. Plus a strong ensemble cast really makes things relatable, making this one pretty cool genre effort.
