ahhh, not exactly what you are looking for... but I think this gives a great idea..
Came in my Filmmaker Mag Newsletter today:
A throwback to old-school horror films featuring ordinary girls in terrifying situations (When a Stranger Calls
), The House of the Devil
succeeds in maintaining a tense atmosphere with a lack of pretense or hipster self-awareness. Samantha (Jocelin Donahue
) is a 1980s college student who calls a couple about a babysitting job, only, when she arrives, to find out that they don't have children, but need her for other, more perverse reasons. The rest is a fantastically suspenseful nightmare, written and directly in an intelligent manner by Ti West
, Trigger Man
), and twisting the expectations of the genre on its head. Interviewed for Director Interviews
this week, West explains his style of horror filmmaking. "This is a horror movie but there's an element to this that's about solving a mystery, and I wanted to let that play out," he says. "I also wanted to take everyone who's very familiar with horror movies out of their comfort zone. You go in a room where you think, 'Oh, my God, something's going to happen,' and then she just talks to a fish and leaves. And then she goes into another room – and it's just a bathroom. You get to the point where you go, 'Yeah, I actually don't know what's going to happen, and I'm just at the mercy of this person.' I think that that's effective and I think that's the way that it should be."
