Who Needs an 80's Remake When You've Got the Real Thing?
House of the Devil is the perfect movie for huge fans of early 80s horror flicks, but who have already exhausted them all. House of the Devil is a modern throwback, replete with cheap-looking, grainy film and those exotic feathered hair-dos. Plus, babysitters, pentagrams, and the Devil.
It's sure to do poorly with mainstream audiences (which is why it'll be released on XBox Live and Amazon a month before it's theater release, the day before Halloween), but it looks like a real goddamn treat for gorehounds. It looks to capture that sense of dread, not through polished atmospherics, but through pacing, a creepy premise, and a cast that looks the part. Why remake an 80s horror flick when you can just make a new 80s horror flick?
