In this crime drama, an East Coast gangster comes to LA and sets up operations in an abandoned mansion where he and his cohorts plan a caper involving the box-office at the Hollywood Sports Arena. To make the job easier, the handsome gangster pitches woo to the pretty, but lonely arena cashier who becomes the sole witness to the crime. After the robbery, the nefarious villain kills his helpers and dissolves their corpses in a bathtub full of stolen acid. After disposing of them, the murderous crook heads for Brazil and spends all of the loot. Eventually he decides to return and that is where he makes his fatal mistake. Right Hand of the Devil was shot on a low-low-budget and is essentially a vanity film for director Aram Katcher who also wrote, produced and starred in the picture.
