Aro Favourite House of the Devil


USA 2009, 95 minutes
Dir. Ti West
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Horror

Topics: Period 1980s.


Aroview: A fully-fledged homage to the 'golden age' of 70's & 80's horror that could easily be mistaken for the real thing, it follows a young college student who takes on a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse.

Muted colours in 16mm., Farrah Fawcett hair, a Sony Walkman, buckets of blood and the presence of Woronov, Wallace Stone plus the criminally under-used Noonan make this a nudge-nudge, wink-wink affair for old-school horror buffs, and a must-see for those that appreciate deftly controlled, slow burn dread.

Pop soundtrack includes the overlooked 80's power pop of the Greg Kihn Band, The Fixx and Thomas Dolby.
