The House of the Devil (2009)

Directed by Ti West (X)

Featuring: Jocelin Donahue, Mary Woronov, Greta Gerwig

Would you accept a babysitting job in a creaky Victorian mansion?  Would you stay after you find out that there is no baby?  

"The best horror film of 2009." - Hunter Stephenson, Slash Film


"Director Ti West is out for something more timeless: to induce paralyzing fear." - Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York


"It's creepy as hell!  The slow-burning suspense ratchets it to a gonzo, bloody finale." - Village Voice


"While many of the horror movies paying tribute to past decades did so in an explicitly grisly manner, Ti West's third feature - his widest-released to that point - took a different tack.  West employed  a slow-burn approach to his homage of '70s/'80s fare." - Michael Gingold, Ad Nauseam II


"After years of vivisectionist spatter, here is a horror movie with real shivers." - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times


"House is a creepy exercise in pacing and tension, devoting its energies to building character and setting mood instead of barreling through a series of rote shocks, so when the frenetic terror does kick in, mercilessly, you are powerless." - Jason Shawhan, The Tennessean


"West brings the dedicated enthusiasm of a very young Frankenstein to this project." - Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

Desperate for quick cash, college sophomore Samantha Hughes (a breakout performance by Joceline Donahue) takes a babysitting job in the isolated mansion of the creepy Ulman family.  Ignoring the warnings from her best friend (Greta Gerwig), Samantha has no idea that a nightmare of unspeakable fear and torment awaits her within these walls.  At midnight, in the shadow of a full lunar eclipse, the ultimate evil will be unleashed.  Cult icons Tom Noonan (Manhunter), Mary Woronov (The Devil's Rejects) and Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes) - co-star in the acclaimed demonic thriller that fans and critics hail as an unnerving return to late '70s/early 80s classic horror.   

Winner: Jocelin Donahue, Best Actress - Screamfest 2009

Plus a Something Weird Video Thanksgiving short film.
