An ordinary family rents a creepy old house for the summer, and later learns that the place has supernatural forces.
Actress Karen Black and director Dan Curtis reteamed for this spooky ghost story following their great success the year before with the TV thriller TRILOGY OF TERROR. This theatrical release isn't completely up to that triumph, but all in all it's a pretty good chiller, with a terrific cast doing marvellous work. Though she is given surprisingly little to do, Bette Davis does wonders with her role as the tormented aunt. At any rate, this film is a classic compared to THE AMITYVILLE HORROR which came along three years later.
