The House of the Devil (2009)
Samantha is a sweet-natured and retiring young woman, unlike her rambunctious, loud, and self-assured best buddy, Megan. After moving into a new apartment, Samantha is desperate for a way to make a few more bucks. When Mr. Ulman comes on campus looking for a babysitter, Samantha jumps at the opportunity. Once she convinces Megan to give her a ride to the creepy old Ulman house, Samantha learns that the job is not quite what was advertised. Ulman and his wife don't even have a child. He tells Samantha that she just has to stay in the house with his elderly mother-in-law while he and the missus go out to celebrate the lunar eclipse. When she balks at the change of plans, he offers her more money. As the night goes on, it becomes clear that Samantha is a much bigger part of the Ulmans' plans for the evening than she would ever want to be.
