A Credible Thriller For A Made For TV Movie !
12 October 2000 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

This was one of ABC's TV Movies Of The Week, and a fairly good thriller. Recently widowed by her military husband, pregnant Patty Duke goes to stay at her mother in law's New England country home. Having never met before, the only thing that Patty knows about her hostess is that her late husband had often commented, " You'll Like My Mother ". Well, "Mom" couldn't be any less gracious, and Patty soon enough realizes that something is very amiss. With Sian Barbara Allen as a mildly retarded relative, and Richard Thomas as Kenny who is an uneering presence that was one of the better made for TV movies of the early 70's.
