The House Of The DevilFrom Ti West the director of The Roost and The Innkeepers comes a slow-brewing, old school psychological horror at its finest, freakiest and most fiendish, The House Of The Devil. Horror Channel is proud to be giving this acclaimed movie its UK TV Premiere on February 17th..

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...

Ti will also be presenting a director's night on Thursday February 23rd from 9pm introducing his three favourite horror films. His picks are Creepshow 2, The Evil Dead and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
