    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love the awful implications of the ending. Someone had to retrieve those cameras and that footage.

    Short and sweet: my favorite of the series.

    Beyond the horror, the teenagers are real. Teens in a Hollywood movie virginally tentative and gently joking about sex? How refreshing, and also leads to cutest line ever: "Of course I've done it before. Three times with four girls!"

    The House of the Devil

    ★★★★

    A love letter to 1970’s and early 1980’s horror, right down to the opening credits. The lead even looks like Jill Schoelen!

    One thing, though: the unrealistic over-solicitous, momma attitude of the 911 operator took me out of the storytelling. Unrealistic, not to mention annoying,—the delivery of those words in real life would have been brusque and quick. I was not at all surprised to find, then, that the voice was performed by none other than Lena Dunham.
