HOUSE OF THE DEVIL poster

Before today I had absolutely never heard of THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, but one quick glance at the plot, poster and trailer and I'm actually curious enough to wanna watch it. And that's really something coming from someone who dislikes most horror movies.

The indie film and its promotional campaign are quite unusual in that everything feels like the 80s, which is the film's setting; the brand new poster looks like it was made circa 1979, the trailer is far from the formula we see all of them made from these days, and it stars the grossly-underrated Tom Friggin Noonan whom I still relate to MONSTER SQUAD.

While the promo material looks retro, the release strategy is anything but: the film comes out on Xbox Llive, Amazon and Video on Demand early October, THEN in theaters in time for Halloween.

The movie follows a college student who agrees to babysit in a creepy far away house, unaware the owners have much darker plans for her. Now watch this trailer, courtesy of our buddies at AITH, and tell me this creepfest isn't a kick-ass alternative to the yearly SAW release!

If you think the poster is retro, wait till you see the movie. It stays incredibly true to the era. It's creepy, leisurely paced, and well acted. Tom Noonan is great. It feels incredibly authentic and could easily pass as a film from the 70s. I loved it.

Noonan!

Tom Noonan is still the best Frankenstein Monster since Karloff! This actually looks pretty good.

The poster, plot, and trailer look like a classic 1970s horror film. It looks amazing.

Tom Noonan was great as Francis Dolarhyde in Manhunter.

As far as the movie goes it looks pretty good I actually would pay to see it unlike the sorority row and Stepfather remakes.

Sure does look like a late 70's style horror film poster. At 1st glance looks like it's set like 30 years + ago? will have to watch that again-overall-creepy.
