The House of the Devil (2009)
In the 1980s, on the night of a lunar eclipse, a college student accepts a babysitting job. Writer/director Ti West imitates the look and feel of low-budget horror films from the early eighties, but he doesn’t do it thoroughly enough for his film to qualify as homage or parody. What’s left is a horror film that takes way too long to set the stage. At least, before impatience sets in, the film succeeds in creating a creepy atmosphere.
