The Film



Spawning from the hit comic, THE DEVIL'S HANDSHAKE, this short horror-adventure romp features the title's two main characters, Basil and Moebius. Basil (Ray Park) is a street tough brawler while Moebius (Zachary Levi) plays a dashing cat burglar playboy. The partners-in-crime, who work for the mysterious and supernatural Collector, pull a daring heist during an illegal gambling party thrown by an underworld kingpin (Malcolm McDowell).

Reviews

01

“When I first heard about the concept for the heroes in Devil’s Handshake, I thought it was going to be very cool. It is. In the best tradition of the buddy comedy, Devil’s Handshake combines derring-do and witty repartee to create a team that the reader wants to join. Think Artemus Gordon and James West, or Fritz Lieber’s Fafhrd and Gray Mouser. Now tweak the setting and have a blast.”
