These are the days I relish in owning my own website. We get promos from upcoming films all the time ranging from stupid t-shirts to glow in the dark pens. But today… my mind has been blown. To promote Dark Sky Films’ February 2 DVD/Blu-ray release of Ti West’s The House of the Devil (one of my top 10 films of 2009), they sent Bloody Disgusting a copy of the film on VHS. Yes, you heard correct, VHS. Those of you who have seen the film know that West’s thriller is a period piece that takes place in the 80’s. Check out images of the VHS copy below. Click here for more info on the DVD/Blu-ray release.
“Set in the 1980s and based on true, unexplained events, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL stars the sexy Jocelin Donahue as cash-strapped college student Samantha Hughes, who takes a babysitting job in a remote mansion with her good friend Megan (Greta Gerwig, BAGHEAD). She’s desperate for money and the pay is good, but something feels wrong, and Samantha quickly realizes that the girls are trapped. As a lunar eclipse darkens the night sky, Samantha finds that her employers–cult favorites Tom Noonan (MANHUNTER) and Mary Woronov (ROCK AND ROLL HIGH SCHOOL)–don’t have a baby at all, and have something truly terrifying in store for them.”
