Grimmfest 2014: ‘Devil’s Mile’ Review

16 September 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: David Hayter, Maria del Mar, Casey Hudecki, Amanda Joy Lim, Adrienne Kress, Frank Moore, Samantha Wan, Shara Kim, Craig Porritt | Written and Directed by Joseph O’Brien

A gang of psychotic convicts take a dangerous and ill-advised detour after brutally kidnapping two young girls. As the captors speed away, events quickly turn out to be much more dangerous and gruesome than they had planned for. While driving down a long and dark stretch of deserted highway, the car becomes surrounded by mysterious sinister spirits, forcing the captors and young girls to work together in hopes of surviving the deadly evil force.

Well done to Devil’s Mile for being the first of the last few horror films I have reviewed to actually make me shout out in fear. I’m sure it was some kind of a battle cry, drawn from some baser human instinct to fight the scary »

Devil's Mile is a Winding Road to Nowhere? A Movie Review

19 August 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by Phase 4 Films. Director/writer: Joseph O'Brien. Cast: David Hayter, Maria del Mar, Casey Hudecki and Frank Moore. Devil's Mile is the first feature film from writer Joseph O'Brien (Fresh Meat) as director. Both, Devil's Mile and Fresh Meat (2012) blend genres, with this one going for more mystery and horror, over comedy. Devil's Mile is the second film this reviewer has seen, recently, which deals with a circular curse. Characters go in circles, with no obvious way out of a complex trap. Still, one character manages to square off with Satan, late in the picture. Earlier, O'Brien brings some Japanese horror influences to the film as seen in the antagonist's awkward movements and sounds. Pacing issues slow down the middle portions of the film, while lighting effects amplify the horror elements. Devil's Mile is a slow-burning indie production that offers a mostly entertaining time. »

David Hayter Talks Devil’S Mile, Creature Movie Magic, A New Sci-Fi Franchise He’s Developing, Black Widow and More

12 August 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With writing credits like X-Men and Watchmen to his name, it can be easy to overlook the fact that David Hayter has also kept quite busy in the acting and voice acting realms as well.  He’s still pushing forward as a writer/director and has his latest directorial endeavor, Wolves, due in the fall, but Hayter also abides by one very important acting rule; if someone asks him to take a part, he’s going to do it, and that’s how Devil’s Mile came up. Hayter steps in as Toby, a henchman of sorts to an evil crime boss named Mr. Arkadi who orders him and his cohorts, Cally (Maria del Mar) and Jacinta (Casey Hudecki), to kidnap two girls.  They manage to get them, but delivering them becomes the problem due to the rather sinister nature of the route home.  With Devil’s Mile hitting DVD and VOD on August 12th, »

Review: Set Your Gps to Avoid Devil’s Mile

10 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Say you’re a criminal, and you’ve kidnapped two teenage girls for your deranged boss, who you are very frightened of. You need to safely and swiftly transport those girls to him. Wouldn’t it make sense to know where you are going and take the most direct way possible? Apparently not if you are the dimwit trio of criminals in Devil’s Mile.

Toby (David Hayter, writer of X-Men among others), Cally (Maria del Mar), and Jacinta (Casey Hudecki) are the aforementioned trio. For some reason they take a desolate road in the middle of nowhere, and of course they quickly get lost (does that still happen in 2014, what with Gps and Google maps?). They stop at a gas station for directions, and the weird dude behind the counter tells them to turn back. They don’t listen. Guess how that works out?

Joseph O'Brien Talks Walking the Devil's Mile

14 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Forget Route 666. The Devil’s Mile is an even more evil stretch of road in this new horror thriller starring David Hayter and directed by Joseph O’Brien, with whom we recently had a chance to chat about the film.

Devil's Mile follows a trio of kidnappers who take an ill-advised detour (is there any other kind?) en route to deliver their hostages – a pair of teenage girls - to their mysterious employer. When one of the girls dies along the way, the trio’s slowly-boiling mistrust explodes into chaos.

But what they thought was their worst day ever is only beginning as they are engulfed by the hellish forces that haunt the road - a road they may never escape.

Dread Central: This is one of the few indie horror movies that really lives up to the promo material. I'm curious to know how much the story evolved »
