THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL (2009)
Director Ti West's new retro-horror thing works for the most part. The ending is kind of a predictable letdown unfortunately. It starts out being a seriously creepy movie and ends up somewhere in the realm of silliness. Maybe if the build up wasn't done as well as it was it wouldn't be as jarring that it leads you where it does. Definitely worth seeing if just for the atmosphere it creates and sustains through most of the film. Should be interesting to see what West does next. Heard that his CABIN FEVER 2 is actually decent plus gory and gooey as hell. Gotta check that out soon.
