The House of the Devil Movie Synopsis & Plot

Sam (Donahue) is a pretty college sophomore, so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job even after she finds out there is no baby. Mr. and Mrs. Ulman (cult actors Noonan and Woronov) are the older couple who lure Sam out to their creeky Victorian mansion deep in the woods, just in time for a total lunar eclipse. Megan (Gerwig) is Sam’s best friend, who gives her a ride out to the house, and reluctantly leaves her there despite suspecting that something is amiss. Victor (Bowen) at first seems like just a creepy guy lurking around the house, but quickly makes it clear that Sam will end this night in a bloody fight for her life...

MOVIE REVIEW

In a day and age where horror movies are generally defined by how loud and gruesome they can be, it's refreshing to see a movie that harkens back to a quieter, creepier time. In the vein of old Stephen King and the demonic thrillers of the 1970's, House of the Devil unleashes an intoxicatingly engaging glimmer of horror - too bad it falls apart just as it's getting good.
