|Set in the 1980’s, House of the Devil, has an authentic retro feel throughout. The story unfolds as Samantha, a college student, accepts a ‘babysitting’ job from a creepy couple in an isolated house on the night of a full lunar eclipse. Needless to say things are not quite as the seem.Things started off slowly but I didn’t feel that this was a bad thing; the shocks, when they came, were riding on the back of some genuine tension. There was also some good use of props in the satanic ritual design; nicely atmospheric.
3.5 out of 5.
