House of the Devil (7/10)

I went into this film not knowing anything about it and ended up liking it despite the slow, SLOW build-up. The retro, early 80s mom-jeans style is great. Did I mention that this one takes its time to get rolling? However, once things start happening, all bet are off. This is one of the rare low-budget films that satisfies the Joe Bobb Briggs’s standard of “anyone can die at any moment.” The final act feels a bit over-the-top after the quiet creepiness of the second act, but it was not so crazy as to make it seem that out of place.
