      Peter Bradshaw Guardian Pretty successful on its own terms, this modestly conceived feature has the feel of one of the twist-in-the-tale short stories Roald Dahl used to produce for adults. Rated: 3/5 Aug 16, 2012 Full Review Leo Robson Financial Times Things takes an unexpected swerve into occult territory - a bizarre and tiresome development that leaves you longing for when the film was just derivative and flat. Rated: 2/5 Aug 16, 2012 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts I really think that the story was quite clever but the way it was paced out into the film really didn't make much sense to me. Rated: 4/10 May 11, 2021 Full Review Naila Scargill Exquisite Terror With a hell that breaks loose quietly, The Devil's Business metes its tension effectively to insidiously creepy result. Feb 28, 2019 Full Review Cleaver Patterson CineVue A film infused with subtle shocks and old-school horror, which uses stealthy inference rather than blatant, crass visuals. Rated: 4/5 Feb 2, 2019 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) Genuinely resonant and scary. Aug 19, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Creepy, atmospheric little thriller. It's a slow-burn, but with such a slender runtime you don't really feel it. The mix of Hitman story with the supernatural elements was really well done. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Great dialogue, atmosphere, and story. THIS is the way a horror movie should be made. Creepy as all hell..... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member The Devil's Business has taken some of the best ideas from the far superior Kill List and made a duller version of that film. I'm not familiar with the actors but the lead kept the same concerned expression on his face all the way through and the other guy just came across as annoying. Any attempt at building tension or suspence was a big failure. When the lead hitman is telling his scary story at the start I nearly fell asleep, it went on forever and had no point to it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Similar to the excellent Kill List. Sean Hogan's flick is centered around two hit man hired to kill an old friend of their boss. A decent score and some excellent scary moments are let down by its weak climax. Nonetheless an enjoyable effort. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member the movie turned uphill terrifying when the older hit man told the story, as the silence pictures an eerie and disturbing surroundings. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review troy k Starts off interesting, but fizzles about 30 minutes in. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
