Many years ago, in Spruce Lake, a defiant farmer drowns when he refuses to leave his lands and a dam is built to flood and create a lake. In the present days, while traveling with the stripper Lucky (Nadine Riess) for an important meeting with the banker Jerry Gold (John Probandt) and the wealthy landlord Janet Sands (Cheri Larrocque), the unscrupulous Senator Wells (Bobb Hoplins) runs out of gas and the couple is stranded in the Bed & Breakfast owned by Bing (Tommy Strong). Meanwhile, Janet and Jerry are unable to cross a bridge over a flooded river and are advised to spend the night in the same B&B. Together, they are invited to have a dinner in a nearby tavern by the hillbillies Junior (Robert Spediacci) and his sister Caro (Erika Hopkins) where there is a fight of three hunters and one of them is killed. Senator Wells is running the election to the White House and afraid of a scandal, he proposes the men to hide the body in the beginning of a tragic night.
I am a fan of horror genre and I bought this DVD based exclusively in its wonderful cover of the Brazilian edition (called "Damned Mansion") and the summary that the story would be based on revengeful spirits in a haunted house. However, I found a screenplay with the most inconsistent and incoherent situations; awful characters and terrible acting, mostly of them by actors and actress with the last name Hopkins (Bobb, Chet, Tommy, Erica these amateurish guys should have sold or distributed this DVD for their families and friends instead). Last but not the least, the lighting is also very poor and there is no ghost. Ernest Borgnine, in the end of career, has a minor and also very bad acting and reading of the introduction. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Mansão Maldita" ("Damned Mansion")
