The kinds of horror movies that get people excited are usually the ones that operate on atmosphere, getting you scared of what might be behind the door rather than shocking you with buckets of blood. That's definitely the m.o. of Ti West's House of the Devil, a throwback kind of horror film about a girl in the 1980s who takes a job babysitting at a spooky house out in the woods, only to discover that there is no baby, but there's definitely something creepy up in the attic.

By the safe light of day in the comfort of Manhattan, I spoke to the movie's three leads, Tom Noonan, Mary Woronov and newcomer Jocelin Donahue. Donahue, a young woman breaking into the industry who easily could have spent the last few years getting sliced and diced in all kinds of horror films, said this one was different. "This film was cerebral, there's nothing gratuitous about it. when I read it, I thought this was something I would see, and something I would love to be in. It's a throwback. there's no love story, which is also appealing to me."

As for Noonan, who plays the creepy man who hires Donahue's character for the job, the role had one key benefit: "I don't like to talk loud. There was no loud talking, so that was good for me."

Check out a clip from my interview with the three stars below, and if you're at Tribeca make sure to check out House of the Devil, which has all kinds of horror fans excited.
