SRTV @ The London Premiere of RED DEVIL

It was a great evening, meeting great people and watching a great movie in Leicester Square London as SRTV graced the London Premiere of movie “RED DEVIL”

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 film also feature talented Black actors including Abdul Popoola, Shanice Grant-Barnett and others
