Michael (Devin Caldarone), his girlfriend Cathy (Jackie Falcon) and his
ex-con acquaintance Ted (Bryan Sapphire) plan to rob a bank that's for
some reason unguarded and has no security systems at all - which of
course sounds too good to be true ... but somehow it is, and their heist
goes without a snag. But already making good their getaway, their car
spins out of control, they hit a tree, the tow truck driver (Daniel Mendez
Campos) steals their loot, and eventually they find themselves in some
kind of wasteland inhabitated by demonic creatures. Coincidence?
Not at all of course, as the bank they've robbed was run by a couple of
witches (Sandra Rosko, Rose Wakesho), who together with their aunt and
mentor (Marjorie Kunigisky) have somehow taken control of their fate and
punish them quite to their own liking. Still, they're under pressure as
well, as their bank is the house bank of Lucifer (Mike Ferguson), and
should he decide to take his money elsewhere - because of a successful
bank heist for example - their little bank would be ruined ...
Horror regular Sheri Davis plays Lucifer's jealous wife Lilith.
One can't help but notice, The Devil's Heist was an a
bit too ambitious project for its modest funds, so some things on the
action and effects side of the project could have done with a little more
development (not the prosthetic work though, this is first rate) - and
that's a bit of a pity, but even as it is, this movie's actually a lot of
fun, contains some great and original story ideas, presents us with some
interesting to relatable, flawed characters, and keeps things flowing at a
high enough pace to keep one entertained throughout. In other words a
really cool blend of heist and horror movie sprinkled with some comedy
that might fall short of perfection but shows lot of promise.
