Here's a little piece of advice for would-be babysitters: if it's a full moon, you might want to stay home rather than risk getting sacrificed for Satan. That's the premise for the upcoming horror flick The House of the Devil, which stars Jocelin Donahue (pictured) as "a babysitter who runs afoul of a family of devil worshippers."

Greta Gerwig plays the babysitter's best friend; this will be the indie darling's first foray beyond the mumblecore circle of films (Nights and Weekends, Baghead, Yeast). The film will also feature a cameo by Dee Wallace (E.T., The Howling, Cujo), according to Fangoria.

To further the genre goodness, the demon-friendly parents will be played by Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov, a teaming which is almost too evil to imagine. The soft-spoken Noonan was perhaps most spooky as a serial killer in Michael Mann's Manhunter. Woronow was most recently in The Devil's Rejects, but her horror roots stretch back to 1974's Silent Night, Bloody Night. Also cast are A. J. Bowen (as the evil son), John Speredakos, Heather Robb and Brenda Cooney.
