The House of the Devil (2009)

After watching The Innkeepers (2011), and having now watched The House of the Devil (2009), we can safely say that we are witnessing the birth of young director Ti West as a horror movie master. Here, a young girl answers a call for a babysitting job in a huge house by the countryside.The House of the Devil clearly shows West's admiration and respect for classic horror, presenting a slow, atmospheric, mysterious and engaging suspenseful experience that leads and prepares the audience to a brilliantly executed final act. The camera techniques in which way the house is filmed are a delight, and the photography is amazing. You can feel every wall and every step of the stairs in this classic scenario that will never trick you with easy jump-scares, as Jocelin Donahue's brilliantly developed character wanders through the rooms. This is a 60s/70s inspired horror movie, with many references throughout, that will please the fans of the genre; a low budget gem with a limited theater release that goes all the way up and head to head with the best horror movies ever made; a gem that is starting to be discovered and earning by right a cult status among the audience.

Trailer follows:
