31 Days of Horror – Day 18

The House of the Devil

Ti West’s slow burning, throwback love letter to the “Satanic Panic” of the early 1980’s.  Incredibly atmospheric and genuinely chilling, The House of the Devil looks like a missing gem horror movie straight from 1984 even though it was filmed in 2009.  The pacing is deliberate and the film has a very minimal score but if you have the attention span (most don’t nowadays) and can enjoy a slow dreadful build, the ending is so worth it.
