The House of the Devil
Directed by Ti West
A stranger lures a babysitter to a house with an unusually large sum of money. But when she arrives, Samantha doesn’t find any kids. Just a large and very creepy house, that may not be as empty as it seems. Indie horror director Ti West (THE INNKEEPERS) made his mark with this terrifying ‘80s throwback, featuring cult horror legends like Dee Wallace (THE HOWLING), Mary Woronov (NIGHT OF THE COMET), plus Greta Gerwig - before she hit it big. You’ll never bop around listening to headphones in an empty house again after watching what happens to Samantha. Contains violence and gore.

...great payoff. Extra points for Mary Woronov and for *nailing* that horrible 80s vibe lol
Not for gore hounds or jump-scare babies—this is a long slow burn, creepy from the beginning and with a
Awesome movie. This is a good example of a slow paced movie that is never boring. The last half hour really delivers. Highly recommend
Very slow burn with an ok ending. I enjoyed it as it was a good homage to 70's/80's horror & there were some good scenes, bur could have been a bit more thriller/action content for me. Pretty good at building tension though & a good score.
