The Restaurant – aka The Devil’s Restaurant – is a 2018 comedy horror film written and directed by Eric Ford Holevinski as Eric T. Ford. The Hayride Films / Playtime Aint Over production stars Mark Turner, Anthony Misiano and Byron Clohessy.


Andy made a deal with a demon. He manages a small but ambitious Italian eatery called Scoppa. The demon’s black magic lures patrons to the restaurant; in return, Andy feeds guests to the demon, who lives in the basement. It was all going smoothly, business was booming, reviews were glowing… Until the busboy found out!


“The little background touches are excellent and often as funny as any of the jokes, which, thankfully, flow naturally instead of being forced into the script every two minutes. In the end, it’s the story of a strange little man and his misguided dreams as much as anything else…” Laura MacLeod, The Movie Critic Next Door
