The House of the Devil Spoiler-free review



Is it good?
Hell yes.

Is it technically good?
The cinematography is Hitchcock by way of naturalistic ’70s movies - it’s pretty without being fancy in a way that takes you out of the moment.
Greta Gerwig is hilarious, Tom Noonan is the perfect amount of creepy, and Jocelin Donahue does well carrying the bulk of the movie on her own.
The music is a perfect fit for the retro style of the film.
The director, Ti West, knows how to milk suspense and make the movie work without jump scares.

What does it promise - and does it deliver?
Retro horror done modern - and it certainly delivers.

If you liked these, you'll like this: the Innkeepers, the Sentinel, Rosemary's Baby.

  2. I and also my friends appeared to be looking through the excellent tips and tricks from your web page and so quickly I had an awful suspicion I never thanked the blog owner for those techniques. All the young men had been as a consequence very interested to study them and already have without a doubt been taking advantage of those things. Appreciate your getting well helpful as well as for deciding upon some excellent subject areas millions of individuals are really wanting to be informed on. My honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to sooner. gomovies
