Storyline

Rufus Sinclair was a cranky old millionaire with a terrible fear of being buried alive. After his apparent death, clauses in his will meant to prevent his being buried alive are violated by his uncaring family, and soon a masked figure begins prowling the family's Connecticut estate, slaughtering the family members one by one in a variety of separate, horrible ways.

Goofs

It was revealed later that the killer drank tea from a decanter and pretended it was whiskey while he remained sober.However, on the night of his mother's murder, he drank whiskey from the same decanter as he policeman. So they would both have had to have been passed-out drunk, since it was whiskey. See more »

Quite Pathetic
1 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rate this one on the same level as "The Birds". Terrible portrayal of human survival, inept police procedure and stupidity on the part of the characters. What are the police doing running around with the dogs when everything took place in/around the crypt and buildings? Why would any fool take a bath with a homicidal maniac dispatching everyone on the place? Why did it take so long to get from the crypt to the house when caretaker found in casket? Nobody is armed for protection, one moronic constable left to guard the place, and how did he get intoxicated on rancid tea? This is a bad one, and ranks with above avian picture where no one takes any initiative to eliminate the problem; just add to it and appear to substantiate the no lifeguard at the gene pool concept.
