  • Well did not expect Greta Gerwig to get shot in the head…that was when I knew I was in for a ride
  • This movie has an eeriness too it; it is uneven at times, but it is still omnipresent
  • The sliminess and grittiness of The House Of The Devil made it better than it had any right to do.
  • The tagline for this movie stinks: “Talk On The Phone. Finish Your Homework. Watch TV. Die.”
