Only having seen this TV movie once, back in 1973 when it originally aired, I can only say that it did a commendable job entertainment-wise, it being rather unusual in its day for depicting the theme of witchcraft. Belinda Montgomery is lured by the seemingly charming Shelley Winters (as Lilith) - a "friend" of her deceased mother - into a ghastly nightmare. I vaguely remember Winter's performance as being marvelously hammy: it seemed she relished playing this off-beat role. And I remember being semi-thrilled at seeing Jonathan Frid (Barnabas Collins in the cult TV favourite gothic soap DARK SHADOWS) cast in a bit as the mute chauffeur. Interestingly enough, I was visiting my Grandparents in Pacific Grove, California when this movie was shot there. Scenes were shot on location in the cemetery across from Point Pinos Lighthouse and at a mansion & elementary school on Lighthouse Avenue.
