The release is expected to arrive on the U.S. market later this year.

Synopsis: Two hit men, veteran Pinner (Billy Clarke) and the fumbling new guy, Cully (Jack Gordon), are ordered to take out one of their former associates. While the target is out on the town, the two stake out in his house. As boredom kicks in, Cully requests Pinner tell a story of his past. Pinner chooses a dark and haunting one. He tells Cully about Valentina, a stripper that he and his associates were ordered to take out - and not to dinner. Pinner brings out the demons - first figuratively, then literally - as he unfolds the story of a love affair gone awry. The supernatural suggestions of Pinne''s story put Cully on edge and when they see occult symbols on an investigation of the rest of the house, their imaginations turn towards the sinister. They slowly realize their target isn't exactly who he seems to be; this job isn't going to be as easy as they first assumed; and their perceived upper-hand in the situation begins to quickly reverse. The Devil's Business marks the second directorial feature from writer/director, Sean Hogan (he also directed the opening segment for 2011's Little Deaths horror anthology).

It's great that they're getting into blu ray, but the fact that it's a new film means its kind of an empty gesture. If they release something like Silip - Daughters of Eve or Alucarda, then I'll be impressed.

Granted it's only a DVD and there is no BD, you can buy this movie for next to nothing on Amazon UK right now...

Doesn't seem to be much middle ground in those reviews; either they love it or they absolutely hated it.

I cherish the Mondo Macabro I have, so I'm guessing I'll be in the "love it" column. I'll give it a blind buy.

I'm glad to see that their first BD will be more in line with the majority of the movies they put out on DVD, instead of a newer movie. The Slave is a sure buy for me. The Devil's Business, not so much. Picked up that UK DVD and really wanted to like it, but it sucked. :/

GIRL SLAVES is a lock, definitely happening. But ALUCARDA is still in the early stages; we are looking into getting access to the negative. If we can get our hands on that, and if they are still in good condition, then we are a go for a BD upgrade for sure.

Hopefully,there will be a couple of other things we can announce in the not-too distant future as well.
