Jeff Grace — The House of the Devil (2014, @deathwaltzrecs )
If you're looking for something a bit more indie to watch on Halloween then Ti West's The House of the Devil should fit just fine. It's creepy and atmospheric, thanks in part to Jeff Grace's 80's tinged score that gives the shivers without overshadowing the film. Fun Fact: Even though this is a picture disc I rated it the best sounding record of the year in 2014 on @modernvinyl ; it plays like a dream!
A DOZEN DAYS OF DREAD: Highlighting twelve of the best lesser-known horror movies of the 21st century. THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL (2009) might be one of the more recognizable titles in this retrospective, but it’s still more underrated than it should be. I think in the past decade or so, we’ve been experiencing somewhat of a renaissance in quality American horror movies. Although director Ti West’s tribute to the grand era of late 70s/early 80s atmospheric, dread-fueled horror isn’t solely responsible for (paradoxically) jumpstarting the modern revival, I don’t think its relevance can be overstated. THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL’s initial release was also unique in that it was available through video on demand nearly a month before it received any sort of theatrical release: a rollout strategy that was far less common at the time. Debates abound when it comes to the pros and cons of the rise in prominence of streaming and video on demand options, but one genre that has most clearly benefitted from such platforms is the horror genre. Without video on demand, a small movie like THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL would have had a limited run in arthouse cinemas and then would have died a slow death on the eroding DVD racks of retail stores. Instead, the movie’s audience was able to access it instantly and word-of-mouth was quick to spread about this cool little movie that looked like something lost from the 80s; a movie that didn’t depend on gore and jump scares like so many contemporary horror movies; a movie that took its time to build up the suspense, establish mood, and develop the dread over time until the climactic release hits the audience like a punch to the gut. A return to classic horror storytelling. This movie that looked like something from decades past somehow felt new and refreshing because it was reminding us of how enduring horror stories should be told. Not the type of horror that provides quick jolts of shock or disgust, but the horror that looms... the horror that lingers. THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL possesses the power to haunt its viewers, and it’s deserving of more hosts. It’s available to watch on the outstanding horror streaming platform, Shudder, and other services.
Here are a few movies I picked up over the last couple of weeks including the new #creepshow and #thefog both released by @shoutfactory. I'm about to rant now so if you don't want to read a small dissertation stop here.
Okay I received both #creepshow and #thefog about two days ago. I didn't open the limited edition poster/lithographs until last night. I was PISSED to say the least. Let's start with Creepshow. The poster was ripped on two sides like someone just shoved it into the poster holder in a rush (pictures included)the lithograph was fine.
Then there was a rip in The Fog's lithograph. This is unacceptable @shoutfactory. I paid good money for the limited edition versions that included the posters and lithographs, because I hang them in my house. Did I mention, I already own both movies so I ordered them for the special features including the posters/lithographs.
Best believe I contacted their customer service department. Well that's it I look forward to hearing from them. #horror#instahorror#horrorhomegirl#horrorjunkie#silentnightdeadlynight#halloween4k rampage #thehouseofthedevil#occulus#itsthegreatpumpkincharliebrown#screamfactory
