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.

Have watched this a few times now. It's all about the last 25 minutes! One thing leads to another...
Slow burner with heavy 80's influence and a huge payoff at the end. A couple of cool jumpscares that were well done but for the most part this was full of intense creepy atmosphere and some excellent moments. 'You're not the baby-sitter?' was a personal highlight and given I'm also a dance around the house with my headphones on kind of girl, this creeped me the hell out.
Yes to Tom Noonan. Yes to dancing to your tapedeck. Yes to "You're not the baby-sitter?".
Love it! Loved the 80's vibe and campiness, just really fun. A bit predictable, like a lot of 80's movies, but worth the watch if you enjoy those older slashers. Plus Dee Wallace!
I started watching this movie last night 08/03/2019 and I was going to finish it tonight 08/04/2019 and the movie is no longer available. I would have given it a higher rating but I only saw less than half. I need to finish watching this movie!!!!
