Bloody Disgusting: A Love Letter to Great Indie Horror: Ti West’s ‘The House of the Devil’ Turns 10

From Bloody Disgusting: West has reiterated in the past that he creates movies that feel authentic to what he himself would want to see on screen, versus worrying about commercial viability and appealing to mass audiences. The auteur famously wrote, directed, and edited House, collaborating with Glass Eye Pix— helmed by legendary indie filmmaker Larry Fessenden, who helped kick off West’s career by giving him some money to make his first features. With Fessenden’s support, West succeeded in creating a film that never feels like anyone else could have made it, and the film evokes that specialness.

Gems like The House of the Devil are the reason we need to keep cherishing that special pocket of independent, inventive, and made-from-little-money brand of horror films. Keep supporting the A24, Glass Eye Pix, SpectreVision, Yellow Veil Pictures, and countless other indie film studios and distributors of the world that are often bringing us the best that the genre has to offer— because we need independent horror just as much as it needs us.
