Ti West's 'The House Of The Devil' Returns To Theaters For Its 10th Anniversary

October 5, 2019

One of the best reviewed horror films of all time and one of my personal modern horror favorites, Ti West's The House of the Devil will return to the big screen this month to mark its 10th anniversary. Becoming an instant cult classic upon its release in 2009, The House of the Devil will receive a nationwide re-release in 27 markets ten years later, beginning October 8th at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Downtown Los Angeles, with a special in-person appearance by Ti West.

 

The film has a classic, deceptively simple set-up. A creaky Victorian mansion, a graveyard, a lunar eclipse and a pretty college girl: filmmaker West brought back all the elements of classic '80s horror - with a modern twist - in The House of the Devil. West (The Innkeepers, In a Valley of Violence) set his tale in the early 1980s and created an old-school atmosphere of dread and "satanic panic" that rivaled the best of that classic era of shockers.

 

In the film, Samantha (Jocelin Donahue, Dead Awake), a pretty college sophomore, needs to come up with extra cash to pay the rent in her new apartment. She accepts a babysitting job from Mr. Ulman (Tom Noonan Manhunter, The Monster Squad), a tall, creepy man who lives in a gloomy old house near a cemetery in the woods. Samantha soon learns that Ulman and his wife (Mary Woronov, The Devil's Rejects) don't even have a child, but Ulman explains that he simply needs Samantha to keep an eye on his elderly mother-in-law while he and his wife go out to celebrate the lunar eclipse. Also in the cast is the then-rising indie It Girl, Greta Gerwig.
