"Simon Killer" and "Christine" director Antonio Campos return for his greatest psychological thriller to date.
Antonio Campos has proven in his indie endeavors "Simon Killer" and "Christine" that he has what it takes to create annoying psychological character studies, and now the 36-year-old filmmaker is getting his biggest screen ever thanks to Netflix. The streaming giant is behind Campos' new feature "The Devil All the Time", which is based on Donald Ray Pollock's award-winning novel of the same name. Set between the Second World War and the Vietnam War, the film includes a cast with Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Jason Clarke, Riley Keough, Sebastian Stan, Eliza Scanlan, Bill Skarsgård, Mia Wasikowska, Harry Melling and Haley Bennett.
The official Netflix “Devil All the Time” synopsis reads: “In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring woods, weird characters arrive – an unholy preacher (Pattinson), a twisted couple (Clarke and Keough) and a crooked sheriff (Stan) – together The young Arvin Russell (Holland) fights against the evil forces that threaten him and his family. "
"It was a difficult book to adapt, also because we loved so much," Campos told Entertainment Weekly earlier this month about the adaptation of Pollock's novel with brother Paulo Campos. "I'm a big fan of Southern Gothic and Noir and this was a perfect marriage for the two of them. Sometimes you might adjust a bit and think, 'This is a good idea and I'll just throw it all away and start over." In this case it was like this, we love everything! "
While leading actor Robert Pattinson has had a varied career outside of his blockbuster endeavors thanks to the collaboration with the Safdie Brothers, Claire Denis and Robert Eggers, among others, Holland is still at the beginning of his career and "Devil All the Time" marks an exciting opportunity to seeing the actor work outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Both Holland and Pattinson last appeared together in James Gray's "The Lost City of Z".
Netflix will release "The Devil All the Time" on September 16th. The film is one of several high profile titles on deck for Netflix this fall movie season, along with Charlie Kaufman's "I'm Thinking of Ending Things" and Aaron Sorkin's "The Trial" of the Chicago 7. ”Watch the trailer on video below.
