"The House of the Devil is the rare scary film that does not pander to its audience...
Establishing a rigorously naturalistic mood, which director Ti West (a thinking mans horror director)
details with the precision and care of the early films of Roman Polanski."
-- Jason Zinoman, VANITY FAIR
"West playfully subverts the horror film genre by insidiously setting up the mood
and letting it eerily and slowly play out before slamming home with a fiendish finale.
-- Dennis Dermody, PAPER MAGAZINE
Ti West’s “The House of the Devil” is a wet dream for horror fans…The classical structure slowly builds tension before erupting into
a decisively gory finish, harkening back to a smarter and more nuanced era of spooky storytelling...
Maintains a delightfully creepy aura throughout, while also functioning equally well as a low key study of youth alienation…
West’s style culls from the vibe of late 1980s horror (and subtly sets the movie in that period), but it’s his authentic filmmaking skill
that makes “Devil” such an enthralling experience.”
-- Eric Kohn, IndieWIRE
"Ti West has been pretty much the unofficial wunderkind of American horror since the arrival of The Roost a few years back...
“The House of the Devil” is by far the best thing to come from West so far
and I’d say also the very best of the recent output from Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix..."
Todd Brown, TWITCH
Set in the 1980s, The House of the Devil centers on cute college girl Samantha (Jocelin Donahue),
who responds to an ad for a babysitter to land some quick cash for a new apartment.
Her skeptical pal Megan (the charming Greta Gerwig) drives her deep into the woods
and deposits her at a big, creaky Victorian house lorded over by a creepy old couple
(the delectably fiendish Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov)
with big plans to celebrate the night's rare lunar eclipse. Desperate for the money,
Samantha agrees to stay even after she finds out there's no baby….
