Payment Poster

PAYMENT is the latest short film from Smucky Productions, completed in May 2018.

After 10 years of hiding, Stephen faces his fate as the Salesman comes to collect his soul; unaware that the demon has fallen in love with him.

Deals with the devil, hellhounds baying, contracts signed in blood – this is familiar iconography throughout Christian culture. PAYMENT takes these folkloric tropes, which have almost become parodies of themselves, and places realistic characters within them: STEPHEN, the nomadic client who only thinks of survival; and the SALESMAN, a demon who develops an attachment that goes beyond his inhuman nature.

More information, including festival premieres and trailers, coming soon.
