On christmas eve, 3 young guys meet 2 gorgeous girls who invite them to spend the weekend in the country. They arrive and meet the maniacal housekeeper joseph. As the weekend progresses, joseph's behavior only gets more erratic and the friends realize their host has made a demonic pact. All hell is about to break loose.
Vincent Cassel (LA HAINE) plays a psychotic groundskeeper who welcomes in the daughter of his employee after she has enjoyed a hard night of partying with her friends (whom she also brings along). After Cassel's character spooks the visitors with a tale about Satan things really get spooky as strange events start to beset the house.
A foxy young temptress, a trio of horny guys, a creepy rural manse and a slightly demonic caretaker are the classic building blocks that get reassembled French-style in Sheitan. Humor-laced creepfest, co-produced by and co-starring Vincent Cassel, got the ultra-rare 16-and-over rating in Gaul, although its quotient of sex and gore isn't excessive for the genre. A must for Cassel completists, mostly handheld horror flick is competently made and boasts a multcultural spin that puts it squarely in the 21st century.

...[Cassel] gives the movie a spark of hedonistic life whenever he's on screen...
As a black comedy, Sheitan is a very entertaining movie...
