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 »

See it if you ever get the chance
1 February 2005 | by (Rochester Hills, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie haunted me for years. I was 8 or 9 years old when I first saw it and it scared the hell out of me. Back then I was past the point of being afraid of "monsters" and such, but the opening scene in which a really young Eve Plumb( yes, "Jan" on The Brady Bunch) comes home from school, enters the empty house calling out for her mother and finds a bloody hand-print on the refrigerator just hit home with me. What would be a child's worst fear?? Losing their parent(s). The rest of the film is a decent enough murder mystery with some fairly big name 70s actors rounding out the cast. Watch for it in reruns on local TV; I have seen it a couple times over the years.
