Upcoming Film Preview: The House of the Devil
Directed by: Ti West
Starring: Jocelin Donahue, Dee Wallace
Release date: ???
Plot synopsis: Set in the eighties, The House of the Devil is the story of college student Samantha Hughes. Samantha takes on a job babysitting on a night when there just so happens to be a lunar eclipse. Slowly, Samantha begins to realize that her clients have something more in store for her than just babysitting, something far more sinister.
I'm not sick of these eighties throw back type films, at least in horror, yet, especially if they manage to capture some of that eighties charm. I'm a huge fan of the poster art, which harkens back to the early eighties, and does it well. This thing has the chance of being a pretty decent little flick. Most of the people involved here are relative new-comers, including the writer/director Ti West (The Roost) and starlet Jocelin Donahue. Of course the exception to that is Dee Wallace, who is no stranger to horror cinema.
