Missed The House Of The Devil ten years ago? Don’t even know what that is? Now’s your chance to find out; the horror flick — which distributor Dark Sky Films touts as one of the best-reviewed scary movies of all time — is getting a tenth anniversary rescreening across America this month.

At first glance the plot sounds pretty basic: a young college undergrad accepts a babysitting job from a creepy-looking man who lives in a shadowy, paint-faded old house NEXT TO A CEMETERY — and he doesn’t even have a kid, aiiiieeeeee! You’d almost expect such a setup to be scored by a “Spooky Sounds” cassette tape from the drugstore, but don’t forget that the plot of The Shining is basically “haunted hotel.” It’s all in the execution.

And critics were freaked OUT by The House Of The Devil. Roger Ebert spoke admirably of director Ti West and called him “an admirer of classic horror films [who] understands that if there’s anything scarier than haunted house, it’s a possibly haunted house.”
