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.

Janet Leigh's performance...and the film in general.
12 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would have to agree that Janet Leigh looks very beautiful in this movie, but I hope that people also notice how great of a performance she gives. This character gives her the chance to play a much more seedy part, and she plays it to the hilt.

I don't want to take away from the other great things about this movie because there are many. The plot was great, most of the actors were very good, and the use of flashbacks was COOL! The script was quite racy for a TV movie of that time.

House on Greenapple Road still holds up watching it today, and many believe it is one of the better made for TV movies.
