Film Focus – House Of The Devil (2009)

Ti West again behind the camera along with his writing and editing.

When young college student Samantha Hughes (Jocelin Donahue) she takes a job as a babysitter for a house in a remote country area. With the Moon having a lunar eclipse she learns that she is there to look after an elder lady. After the couple leave things start to get strange for Samantha, but what is really going on?

Shot in 80s style gives this great effect and great build to the conclusion. Jocelin does a great job as there are extended times of solo time on scene and she really doesn’t look out of place keeping you gripped to her next action. Ti West delivers again in this horror thriller.

Best Part: Samantha’s friend Megan’s death

Best performance: Joceline Donahue
