Lives criss-cross and converge thanks to the most addictive drug in human history, Red Devil—which also happens to be the title of Savvas D. Michael’s tale of sex, drugs, and guns. An anonymous voice at the start of the film warns, “Once you’ve tasted the devil’s cum, everything else is dull and numb.” The current problem with the Red Devil drug is the supply has dried up. Addicts are so desperate for it they’re willing to kill for it…and they do.

There are a lot of characters in Red Devil to keep track of, and here are the important ones. Hugo (Ian Reddington) is a cannabis farmer and dealer, who is somewhat of a loner in life. He’s created a new strain of weed that he calls the Triple Cream Dream. It’s undoubtedly a better alternation of the demonic narcotic. Customers come for his pot, but never hang out afterward, except for the mysterious man in black feathers, Gabriel (Matt Lapinskas), who acts as Hugo’s only friend and confidant.

“…the Red Devil drug is the supply has dried up. Addicts are…willing to kill for it…”

Then there’s married couple, Ella (Fernanda Diniz) and Oscar (Jack Turner). Oscar is on the hunt for his Red Devil-addicted brother William. While they’re at it, the couple gets off on hunting down and murdering drug dealers, particularly while they’re having sex. The pair is on quite a killing spree that dealers are afraid the two will come after them and speaking of all that sex, Ella is pregnant.

Finally, there’s Riley (Jamie Crew), who’s hooked bad on Red Devil. His obsession/addiction has led him to kill anyone who has the drug, as well as kill anyone who’ll fight him for it. He goes through extreme lengths to score more. And that means going to his satanic witch of a mother, Queen Beelzebub (Nicky B).
