Enjoy sitting at home on Friday evenings relaxing in front of the telly to unwind and get over the work week? If you’re a horror fan in the UK, then we know you won’t be able to resist making that relaxing evening a little less comfortable on February 17th as The Horror Channel hosts the official UK TV premiere of Ti West’s super-creepy The House of the Devil.
From the press release
From Ti West, director of THE ROOST and THE INNKEEPERS, comes slow brewing, old school psychological horror at its finest, freakiest, and most fiendish. With a terrific cult cast (EATING RAOUL’s Mary Woronov, MONSTER SQUAD’s Tom Noonan, ET’s Dee Wallace), a superb synthesized rock and 80s hit soundtrack, and smartly nostalgic style to match, West’s occult chiller, shot in 2009, is eerily subtle before slamming home a tension-laden devilish finale.
Student Samantha has just moved into her own apartment and needs some fast cash for the rent. Answering a campus advert for a babysitter, she ends up at the creepy old remote country home of the strange Ulman couple. But something is clearly wrong. The pay is too high. There seems to be no child. A total lunar eclipse is about to further darken the night skies. And Samantha’s blood-freezing satanic panic begins…
The House of the Devil (review here) airs on Friday, February 17th at 22:55 GMT. This and more can be found on The Horror Channel at Sky channel 319, Virgin Media channel 149, and on Freesat over on channel 138.
Ti will also be presenting a director’s night on Thursday, February 23rd, from 21:00, introducing his three favourite horror films. His picks? Creepshow II, The Evil Dead, and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
