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.

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 »
I watched this on AMC this morning. That is, I watched until the reading of the will scene which had two glaring errors in it that discouraged me from watching any further. The lawyer can't manage the line "in his employ" and pronounces it "in his employee". This scene was not retaken, showing how cheaply the film was made. Also, the prop used for the will is quite plainly a copy of the American Constitution like you can find in any Washington D.C. souvenir shop. If that's not enough to take you "out of the story", I don't know what is. Roy Scheider should have tried to have every copy of this film destroyed. It wouldn't have cost much.
