On the contrary, represents the programme a nostalgic journey to a time when horror movies were not driven for prvoplánovým the effect of using a predatory pace, excessive sensation or preliminary limited. Planting going on to 80. years of the last century motivates not only the hairstyles and the costumes of the characters, but also a stylish palette of the film. The house of the devil is not a retro or a tribute, but an original and carefully thought-out act, where osmdesátkově nedramatická camera and the simplicity of the characters help to build the tension that slowly escalates to the same degree of resistance.
