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.

it was pretty cool and short and the ending was pretty sick overall awesome!
I absolutely love this film. Ti West does such a great job with the 80's ambience and the score is subpurb. It is a little bit of a "slow burn" but honestly for me it didn't feel that slow. I loved all of it and have to respectfully disagree with the haters. If you're looking for a slasher, this ain't it. However if you want an 80's throwback with tense vibes, give this one a try. And check out some of Ti West's other stuff like The Innskeepers and The Sacrament.
Simply fantastic! Such a brooding creepy 80s-throwback movie!
Fell a bit short**
I enjoyed the movie, but as others noted, it was a bit slow and predictable. Good premise and well made, but feel a bit short.
