Rent the Right One Now: 20 Underrated Halloween Movies Page 17

The House of the Devil (Dark Sky Films)

Not just a movie set in the '80s – Devil is such a spot-on homage to horror flicks of that era that it actually feels like a movie made in the '80s. The music, the editing, and the pacing will convince you that you've stumbled upon some lost classic rather than a low-budget indie from 2009. It's perfect post-trick or treating wind-down viewing, as its painfully slow build up lulls you into complacency before delivering a non-stop WTF of an ending. Dark Sky even released limited copies of "Devil" on VHS complete with oversized "Gorgon Video" packaging – Horror fans of a certain age just "squeee'd" with delight.
