A feature comedy about a small Aussie town’s only metal band that summons Satan – unknowingly derailing the Devil’s plans for Armageddon – and have just 18 hours to get him to the end of the world on time.
The Devil’s in the Details is a fiendishly funny apocalyptic satire on fundamentalism of all stripes, written by five-time AWGIE Award-winning comedy writer Warwick Holt.
A small Aussie town’s only metal band summons Satan to get the fame they think they deserve, but unknowingly, they derail the Devil’s plans for Armageddon, and have just 18 hours to get him to the end of the world on time.
Bloody black comedy hits like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead have reinvented the zombie genre, and The Devil’s in the Details looks at a more traditional apocalypse through similarly skewed eyes. This battle for the future of the universe is distinctly down-to-earth, with the ultimate evil forced to rely on mundane humanity to get what he wants.
With action, music and mayhem in a buzz-worthy road movie, it’s a youthful, diabolical comedy with mass appeal to believers and unbelievers alike.
This daring, dark comedy shows that the way to a better world is by working together through our common humanity. It shows that the way forward is not to foist your beliefs on others but to accept that everyone has their own unique way of seeing the universe.
