House of the Devil

House of the Devil

Remember this name: Jocelin Donahue. She gives a fantastic performance in this subtle and masterfully executed retro horror film. I wound up really liking this movie. It's definitely not for everyone and it's certainly not a feel good movie by any stretch, but the way the parts leading up the mayhem unfold could almost be described as beautiful. It wasn't just 80s redux, it was a significant improvement on that formula.

As an example, the scene where Jocelin’s Samantha is bopping around to the Fix's "One Thing Leads To Another" but then the music abruptly stops (for the audience) when she opens the door to that dark basement is really nicely done.
