The House of the Devil

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


In 1983, financially struggling college student Samantha Hughes takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse. She slowly realizes her clients harbor a terrifying secret, putting her life in mortal danger.

Talk on the phone. Finish your homework. Watch T.V. DIE!

The House of the Devil


Clearly a well-made homage to 70s/80s horror genre. The costume design and makeup are on-point, the camera work is deliberate and the cinematography has that very grainy look. However, like movies of that era, it is woefully slow to its detriment.

The last twenty minutes felt like a completely different movie.

Not my type of movie although I can appreciate the craft.
