Review If nothing else, Ti West's retro "Satan rules!" thriller The House Of The Devil gets the look and tone of early-'80s horror schlock exactly right. West shoots on grainy, muted color film, and relies a lot on low angles, slow dolly shots, and a spare, creepy score to build tension during the long stretches of the movie when absolutely nothing is happening. Most of the action takes place in a big, spooky old house in the middle of the woods outside a small college town, and The House Of The Devil is set in 1982, at a time and place where the modern still seemed not too far removed from the ancient, the primal... the arcane...The House Of The Devil is paced at a crawl, and outside of one early shock, it takes more than an hour for anything even remotely resembling "horror" to occur. (The final 20 minutes is intense, though.) The deliberate style may be a deal-breaker for those who come to ,The House Of The Devil expecting an outright gorefest. This is more a movie for genre cultists, who want to immerse themselves in all the throwback details: the feathered hairstyles, the spiral phone cords, a thesaurus-sized Walkman blaring a song by The Fixx, and so on. From the opening statistic about documented instances of devil-worship, West aims for a mix of the plausible and the ridiculous, revisiting a world where a knock at the wrong door at the wrong time could end with a person pinned to a pentagram and covered in sacrificial blood.

Claudia Puig, USA Today almost unbearably suspenseful.
Geoff Berkshire, Chicago Tribune The hair isn't the only thing scary in this totally '80s horror-thriller.
Manohla Dargis, New York Times is a horror movie with real shivers.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune It is a fine little old-school thriller.
