Goofs

The bloodstains shown on the refrigerator at the beginning of the movie are in a completely different location from where they appear when it is later shown whose blood it was and how it got there. In the opening sequence, the stains are on the front of the refrigerator, whereas when they are shown being put on, the streaks go above the top of the door. See more »

Just thinking of this movie scares me!
16 April 2004 | by (Middletown, RI) – See all my reviews

I saw this once when I was a kid (around 8)...all I remember is the opening scene, it scared the @#$% out of me!...a house, someone coming home, and blood everywhere...very chilling. Plus, I lived on Greenville Road so the fear "hit home" even more.

That 70's made-for-TV-movies genre is greatly under-appreciated and unrecognized. Other movies that I remember about the same time that were really creepy (you might too):

  • "When Michael Calls" (Ben Gazzara, Elizabeth Ashley, Micheal


Douglas)

  • "The Screaming Woman" (Olivia DeHavilland)




  • "Picture Mommy Dead" (Zsa Zsa Gabor)




  • "How Awful About Allen" (Anthony Perkins)




  • "Two On a Guillotine" (Connie Stevens)




  • "The Victim" (Elizabeth Montgomery)
