Today, March 9th 2017, we’re having a 24 hour FLASH SALE on our amazing horror documentary The Devil’s Music!
For those who need no further persuading, head straight over to the VOD page and use the code devilsmarch to get 50% off your rental or purchase. You’ll be happy, I’m sure.
For those who need any more persuading, here are some reasons why you should grab the flash deal. And why you should tell everyone else about it. AND why you should go and phone someone you love who you haven’t spoken to in a while. But we’ll get to that later.
The Devil’s Music is a (whisper it) fake horror documentary about an extreme rock and roll singer called Erika Spawn. She horrifies the tabloids with her blood-drenched stage shows and lyrics, getting loads of tabloid coverage and shifting loads of CDs. Her touring band include awesomely sarcastic bassist Adele, stoned drummer ZC and a mysterious extra guitarist in a gas mask. All goes well, until Erika’s music starts getting blamed for real-life atrocities, and then her world and mental state both start to collapse. She becomes obsessed with a squeaky-clean boy band singer called Robin Harris, believing that he’s got a darker secret than anything in Erika’s gory stage shows. And she might just be right.
When we shot The Devil’s Music back in 2007, we were trying to do some fairly big things on almost no money. We relied on the efforts of our wonderful cast and crew to pull off something cool, and I’m incredibly grateful to all of them and always will be. The movie got the best reviews we’ve ever gotten.
The mighty AintItCoolNews saying “The buildup of tension and horror that takes place in here is outstanding and Higgins makes the entire thing feel like the real thing. Highly recommended”
In his fantastic book Urban Terrors: New British Horror Cinema 1997-2008, MJ Simpson called the film “Magnificent”
Want more? OK, then.
Horror Cult Films called the movie “One of the best indie pictures I’ve seen in ages, The Devil’s Music is a unique and disturbing experience that will haunt you for weeks.”
HorrorTalk (which, for my money, is still one of the best horror destinations on the whole damn internet) described The Devil’s Music as “A master class in engrossing story telling.. keeps the viewer not just engaged, but completely riveted”
And we won the Best Independent Feature award at the Festival of Fantastic Films, going up against movies with many, many times our budget.
I should probably mention the flash sale again at this point, shouldn’t I? 50% off! With the code devilsmarch but ONLY TODAY!!!!
But here’s the real reason that I recommend you go and buy the movie today. We worked our asses off on a bunch of incredibly cool special features for the movie, including the most bizarre director’s commentary I’ve ever been involved with. We put all this stuff together for a DVD release on the movie that we built up for (in fact, it’s STILL listed on Amazon as a pre-order) but never happened due to circumstances beyond our control.
All of these special features (including the commentary, deleted scenes, astonishingly embarrassing easter egg and more) can ONLY be obtained with the version of the movie that I keep linking to. So if you’re interested AT ALL in our odd little slice of cult horror history, this is the only place you’ll get to see the complete story.
Better do the damn link again, hadn’t I? Flash Sale Today Only!! Use the code devilsmarch
So. That’s our movie. It’s dark and smart and odd. A little rough around the ages, but I’m still fiercely proud of it a decade later. It is NOT your run-of-the-mill horror movie. It’s something different. If you don’t like different, stay away.
If you liked the movie, or if you support indie horror in general, please forward this page to everyone you can. We’d love to keep making movies like The Devil’s Music. Movies that are weird and quirky and take risks. Because they’re the kinds of movies we enjoy watching, and we hope you do to.
Oh, and what was that bit at the beginning about phoning someone you love but haven’t spoken to in a while? Well, that’s a great idea too. Sometimes it takes a stranger to tell you to do it. Let us be that stranger. Go phone someone. Restore connection. Rekindle friendships.
And you don’t even have to plug The Devil’s Music while you do it.
