Storyline

When Katy Hazleton visits her sister, Miranda/Mandy, and her husband, Dick Anthony, Dick tells her of his concern over Miranda's recent moody and strange behavior. Walking along the beach that night, Miranda hears strange voices, and when she returns home, becomes hysterical and falls into a coma. When she recovers, she is hostile and claims she is Felicia and not Miranda. Dick tells Katy that Felicia was his first wife, who died in a plunge from a cliff. Miranda asks to see Mr. and Mrs. Bradley, parents of Felicia, and when she calls Ada Bradley "mother", Dick and Katy realize she is possessed by "the other one." Ada Bradley has been practicing black magic for six years and believes it is responsible for returning her dead daughter to her. Mr. Bradley, as one would expect, is horrified at both revelations, although the first one indicates he wasn't paying much attention to what his wife was doing when she was puttering around the kitchen the past few years. That night "Felicia" tries... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

I really enjoyed the plot the movie, the dose not take to start of at all, the movie flows really well.
