Watch: This New Horror Movie About the Devil Earned $666,666 Dollars On Sunday

A devilishly-themed movie that hit theaters this weekend  has raked in profits that seem fitting for its title.

Titled "Late Night with the Devil," this horror flick has secured the sixth  spot at the box office, pulling in a total of $2.8 million. But here's the kicker: on Sunday alone, the film pocketed $666,666. Talk about an eerie  coincidence, especially considering the movie's central theme revolves around the devil itself.

From Fox Business:

Produced by IFC Films, "Late Night with the Devil" stars David Dastmalchian as a fictional talk show host in the late 1970s who "plans a Halloween special like no other- unaware he is about to unleash evil into the living rooms of America," according to the film’s official website. 

"This weekend’s release of ‘Late Night With the Devil’ set fire to our old opening record," Scott Shooman, head of AMC Networks Films, which encompasses IFC, told Variety. "[It] continues to showcase that there is still potential for highly reviewed, intelligent auteur films in movie theaters across all genres."

"Late Night with the Devil" will also later release on the horror streaming service, Shudder, April 19.

Another religious horror film, the Sydney Sweeney-starring "Immaculate," opened in fourth place, with $5.3 million in ticket sales. In the film, Sweeney plays an American nun who joins a convent in the Italian countryside and discovers horrifying secrets within.
