A top cast gets low down playing various menacing roles in the movie version of Donald Ray Pollock’s award-winning novel.

Netflix has announced a global premiere date of September 16 for THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME, which was directed by Antonio Campos (TV’s THE SINNER) from a screenplay he wrote with Paulo Campos. Tom Holland (SPIDER-MAN), Bill Skarsgård (IT), Riley Keough (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD), Jason Clarke (PET SEMATARY), Sebastian Stan (CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), Haley Bennett, Harry Melling, Eliza Scanlen, Mia Wasikowska (CRIMSON PEAK) and Robert Pattinson star; the synopsis: “In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters–an unholy preacher [Pattinson], twisted couple [Clarke and Keough], and crooked sheriff [Stan]–converge around young Arvin Russell [Holland] as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam War, director Antonio Campos’ THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted.”
