Synopsis:
Sam is a pretty college sophomore and so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job with the sinister Ulmans. But after discovering no baby exists in the household, Sam realises the Ulmans have lured her to their diabolical mansion deep in the woods. Left alone in the house, something stirs in the rooms high above Sam. Outside, as lunar eclipse begins, it soon becomes clear that she will end this night in a bloody fight for her life with whatever bone chilling horror is locked in the house with her.

old movie - The House of the Devil review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
08/08/2011

this movie said it was made in 2009 but it seemed more like 80's. very slow but didn't want to turn it off as was waiting for something exciting to happen, it never happened.

Wake me up when something happens - The House of the Devil review by Abann

Spoiler Alert
11/01/2012

I've seen some slow, ponderous films in my time, but this one makes watching paint dry seem like a ride in a fighter jet by comparison. By the time something actually happened I was too bored to care anymore.

If you suffer from insomnia, give it a go. I guarantee you'll have the best sleep you've ever had.

Ponderous - spoilers. - The House of the Devil review by NP

Spoiler Alert
24/11/2018

This 2009 production is set in the 1980s and as such, gives a pretty accurate depiction of those times, minus many of the peroxide and fashionable extremes. Even perennial musical entrepreneur Thomas Dolby’s magnificent ‘One of our Submarines’ can be heard at one stage.

This Ti West scripted/directed film features the appealing Jocelin Donahue as Samantha, whose search for employment leads her into some increasingly dark directions. Baby-sitting a non-existent child doesn’t fill anyone with optimism about her current job, but she perseveres.

A fairly pedestrian storyline isn’t helped by the unevenly slow pacing of events. There are some gory moments, and some effectively staged set-pieces, but these are infrequent, and far too much time is spent setting things up that never seem to come to anything. This changes in the last act, when Samantha’s plight becomes more than slow-burning teasers, and something manifestly evil. Herein, the more traditional moments of horror are welcome after a long time waiting.
