Malcolm McDowell Is The DEVIL!

Iconic actor Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombie’s Halloween 1 & 2, Star Trek: Generations) spoke with horror site Bloody Disgusting at the Saturn Awards about his role as Satan in the upcoming indie horror / comedy Suing the Devil. McDowell spoke to them about where his inspiration to play Lucifer came from and his perspective on the film and characters. The film was made by a Christian company called Mouthwatering Productions and is written and directed by Timothy A. Chey. It also stars Bart Bronson, Corbin Bernsen, Tom Sizemore, and Rebecca St. James. After the jump, you can check out what he had to say about the film, watch the trailer, and read a short synopsis of the film.
What McDowell had to say to Bloody Disgusting about the film:

“From my point of view – I play the Devil – [the film] is about a loser that can’t get his act together or his life together and blames everybody else for his loser-ness,” said the grizzled actor, sporting a pair of the most intense blue eyes I’ve ever seen. “He’s a big loser, and so he of course blames the Devil and he goes to court to sue the Devil. And I answer the summons. And so it’s really a comedy in a courtroom…You know, I’m not into the religious connotations of what good and evil are. In fact the Devil I played is not really evil. I mean, the Devil really is charming, seductive. I mean, it’s like Naziism…charming, seductive, all these things. It’s just the underbelly of angst…but it was really actually a terrific script and I had a ball.”

In the film Luke O’Brien, a washed-up janitor turned night law student, decides to sue Satan for $8 trillion dollars. On the last day before Luke files a default judgment, Satan appears to defend himself. On Satan’s legal team are 10 of the country’s best trial lawyers. The entire world watches on Legal TV to see who will win the Trial of the Century.
