From writer-director Ti West comes "The House of the Devil," a satanic thriller set in the 1980s starring Jocelin Donahue (JT Petty's forthcoming "The Burrowers"), indie ingénue Greta Gerwig ("Hannah Takes the Stairs," "Baghead"), Tom Noonan ("Snow Angels," "Manhunter"), Mary Woronov ("Eating Raoul," "The Devil's Rejects"), AJ Bowen ("The Signal") and Dee Wallace ("E.T.," "Rob Zombie's Halloween"). Sam (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 Noonan and 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 (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 (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 bloodyfight for her life...
