Filmed at the Congdon Mansion in Duluth, MN. After the murder of mansion owner and prominent heiress Elisabeth Congdon in 1977, a movie theatre in Duluth revived the movie at midnight showings (much to the chagrin of the Congdon family). See more »

Capable cast goes through the motions in a predictable, mechanical snowbound thriller, yet another in a long line of genre screamers pitting one 'helpless' woman against a gang of crazies. This time it's Patty Duke's turn to portray the captive: a pregnant widow who goes to visit her mother-in-law for the first time in frigid Minnesota and quickly finds herself unable to flee. Director Lamont Johnson, who ended up having a very spotty resume of good films and duds, handles the story in a workman-like, perfunctory way without a drop of self-effacing humor or even morbid interest. Very piqued, despite the convincing surroundings and Duke's innate likability. *1/2 from ****
