About the Movie

Desperate for quick cash, college sophomore Samantha takes a babysitting job in the isolated mansion of the creepy Ulman family, unaware that a nightmare of unspeakable fear and torment awaits her when the ultimate evil is unleashed at midnight. From writer/director Ti West comes this acclaimed demonic thriller that’s an unnerving return to late ‘70s/early 80s classic horror.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: After years of vivisectionist splatter, here is a horror movie with real shivers. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Oct 30, 2009

Fresh: West avoids cliche and cheesiness with wise casting choices. Donahue's naturalistic performance is as persuasive as the subtly sinister portrayals by Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: West's assured way with widescreen framing, long takes and silences followed by sharp if explainable noise are almost cruelly funny in their heart-stopping pleasures. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The House of the Devil is really a romance: a love letter to the kind of gal we thought had given up the ghost. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Great movie

This is for people that appreciate great film making. Great horror movie. Need more like it!

Not your average horror movie, in a good way

I went into this not expecting much, thinking it was another paranormal activity, found footage clone. I was pleasantly surprised to find a gem in the horror genre. It's the type of horror that builds up through the whole movie. There's some jump scares here and there. It the atmosphere and film directing is what makes it an excellent horror movie. I'd recommend it to anyone that's a fan of horror.
