Screamfest L.A. ’09: There’s a Devil in the House!


First word on L.A. screening

Screamfest 2009 is revving up and founder Rachel Belofsky announced this afternoon that The House of the Devil has been snatched up as the coveted “centerpiece film” of the event.

The Hollywood-based fest runs October 16-25. Devil will play on Wednesday the 21st.

Synopsis: Sam (Joceline Donahue) is a pretty college sophomore, so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job even after she finds out there is no baby. Mr. and Mrs. Ulman (cult actors Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov) are the older couple who lure Sam out to their creeky Victorian mansion deep in the woods, just in time for a total lunar eclipse. Megan (Great Gerwig) is Sam’s best friend, who gives her a ride out to the house, and reluctantly leaves her there despite suspecting that something is amiss. Victor (A.J. Bowen) at first seems like just a creepy guy lurking around the house, but quickly makes it clear that Sam will end this night in a bloody fight for her life…
