The House of the Devil (2009)


Horror |

The House of the Devil is horror film written, directed, and edited by Ti West, starring Jocelin Donahue, Tom Noonan, Mary Woronov, Greta Gerwig, A. J. Bowen, and Dee Wallace.

The plot concerns a young college student who is hired as a babysitter at an isolated house and is soon caught up in bizarre and dangerous events as she fights for her life.

The film combines elements of both the slasher film and haunted house subgenres while using the “satanic panic” of the 1980s as a central plot element. The film pays homage to horror films of the 1970s and 1980s, recreating the style of films of that era using filming techniques and similar technology to what was used then.

In the 1980s, college student Samantha Hughes inspects a house she wishes to rent. Due to Samantha reminding her of her own daughter, the landlady forgoes a deposit in favor of one month’s rent in advance. Samantha is struggling financially, so she takes on a babysitting job for Mr. Ulman and his wife. Ulman asks to meet her but stands her up, later apologizing and offering to pay double the original salary. Samantha accepts and gets a ride to the remote mansion from her best friend, Megan. At the house, Mr. Ulman pulls her aside and reveals that he does not have any children to be monitored; although he has a child, his son is now grown. The babysitting job is to attend to his wife’s ailing mother, whom he refers to as “able-bodied.” Samantha balks but finally agrees when she is offered $400 for the job, a significant increase in her pay.
