The House of the Devil

(2009)

In the late 1980s, 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; they plan to use her in a satanic ritual.

‘The House of the Devil’ Returns... on VHS?!

With vinyl making a comeback and almost every franchise from the 1980s finding its way to remakesville, one has to give credit to Magnet Releasing, the studio behind the sleeper, spookfest of 2009, The House of The Devil.

Not only does The House of The Devil look like an '80s film. From the opening credits which have a pulsating soundtrack behind them, to the film's measured pace, to the clothes the characters wear and even the film's one sheet!

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Ti West Resides in ‘The House of the Devil’

If this past weekend's box office was any indication horror fan's appetites might be changing. The type of films that fans have been gravitating towards over the last few years, the so-called "torture porn" genre, was well represented this past weekend with Saw VI but fans chose to see the The Blair Witch Project-style movie Paranormal Activity instead, which goes more for scares than gore. This could be a good sign for director Ti West whose new film The House of the Devil, which opens in theaters on October 30th, is a throwback to classic horror films like Halloween and When A Stranger Calls, and should give real horror fans a run for their money this Halloween season. We had a chance to speak with director Ti West and his leading actress, Jocelin Donahue, about their new film and the fate of Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever. To watch our exclusive interview click on the video clip below.

Sam (Donahue) is a pretty college sophomore, so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job even after she finds out there is no baby. Mr. and Mrs. Ulman (cult actors Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov) are the older couple that lures Sam out to their creepy Victorian mansion deep in the woods, just in time for a total lunar eclipse. Megan is Sam's best friend, who gives her a ride out to the house, and reluctantly leaves her there despite suspecting that something is amiss. While, Victor at first seems to be just a creepy guy lurking around the house, but quickly makes it clear that Sam will end this night in a bloody fight for her life. Also starring Tom Noonan, Mary Woronov, Greta Gerwig, AJ Bowen and Dee Wallace and directed by Ti West, The House of the Devil opens in theaters on October 30th.

The life of an anonymous assassin takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Thailand to complete a series of contract killings.

He hires Kong (Shahkrit Yamnarm), a street punk and pickpocket, to run errands for him with the intention of covering his tracks by killing him at the end of the assignment. Strangely, Joe, the ultimate lone wolf, instead finds himself mentoring the young man while simultaneously being drawn into a tentative romance with a local shop girl. As he falls further under the sway of Bangkok's intoxicating beauty, Joe begins to question his isolated existence and let down his guard... just as Surat decides it's time to clean house.
