‘Breaking in was easy… breaking out is going to be hell.’
The Good Things Devils Do is a 2020 American horror feature film about a gangster and a family man forced to join forces to fight a vampire.
Written and directed by Jess Norvisgaard (The Resurrection of Kryst short), the Suttle Film production stars Linnea Quigley, Kane Hodder, Bill Oberst Jr., Bobby Pimentel, Kelley Wilson Robinson, Mary Katherine O’Donnell and Veronika Stoykova.
Richard, a small-time gangster is retiring. Before he can, he must take one last job: to steal money from a rival gangster’s house.
Miles apart, Melvin (David Rucker III) is a reluctant family man who has dreams of becoming a famous curator for his Museum of the Macabre. His newest acquisition? The remains of the notorious Masquerade, a vampire born from the embers of Hell itself, slain centuries ago.
On Halloween night, their paths will collide and they’ll be forced to work together to fight centuries-old evil with everything on the line…
“The gore effects look great, and it’s always nice to watch a horror movie that has some Halloween atmosphere to it. I had a fine viewing experience sitting through The Good Things Devils Do, but if the elements that were in place here had been handled just slightly differently, it could have been more entertaining.” Arrow in the Head
“The Good Things Devils Do is shallow and not particularly scary. But, the actors are good, the action is furious and cool, and the vampire lore presented here is compelling. This means that those who don’t mind some cheese with their horror will have an enjoyable time with this title.” Film Threat
“If you are looking for a quick, little romp that features some legendary names in the genre, then The Good Things Devils Do is a good place to start. While it’s nowhere near the heights other indie horrors are doing this year, there’s still enough admiration for the genre as well as gore to satisfy fans.” Flickering Myth
“This kind of lazy, nasty experience is chock-full of abrasively idiotic characters, vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake, choppy and inconsistent filmmaking, and I couldn’t think of anything at all worth recommending here. If for whatever reason you decide to subject yourself to The Good Things Devils Do, be it masochism or a lost bet, know the first 10/15 minutes are a clear indicator of the kind of movie you’re in for…” Horror Buzz
“Good Things Devil Do is a really entertaining, shoestring budget independent horror film that has an excellent cast featuring Kane Hodder who absolutely kills it! Along with the forever cool Bill Oberst Jr. who delivers a really solid performance once again […] Good Things Devil Do isn’t without flaws however, the effects are fun but not that great…” Infamous Horror
” …The Good Things Devils Do is a chaotic, ichor-drenched romp full of screeching demons, dripping entrails, and squelching blood and guts. Unlike many anthologies, the three stories told here dovetail perfectly into a streamlined yet tumultuous story that delivers. Do yourself a favor, and check this one out. Recommended!” Pop Horror
“With a tone that is evenly split between the humorous and the horrible, The Good Things Devils Do delivers the demonic goods with a high body count, unexpected team-ups, and lots of Evil Dead-like moments of bloody and body terror.” Reel Reviews
” …The Good Things Devils Do feels a bit disjointed and suffers from plot holes at times. But the film’s pace and frequent bouts of action kept them from being a serious distraction. On the other hand Masquerade’s Evil Dead style taunting got on my nerves after a while. But they’re minor complaints for an unheralded indie film with a solid plot…” Voices from the Balcony
