"Though The House of the Devil is so steeped in nostalgia for the genre films of yore that it seems to belong far more to the 1980s than to the present day, it nevertheless carved a perfect niche for itself in late-aughts cinema.

"17.12. Netflix, 2nd viewing DIRECTED BY Ti West Lost some of its charm on second viewing but it is a nice little horror flick. I admire these kinds of carefully and lovingly made stylistic exercises. "
