Storyline

When college professor Peter Proud begins to experience flashbacks from a previous incarnation, he is mysteriously drawn to a place he has never been before but which is troublingly familiar. As if drawn to her by cosmic force, he soon finds himself unwittingly in the company of his previous incarnation's wife. This woman, Marcia Curtis, recognizes in Peter startling characteristics which he shares with her dead husband, Jeff. Even the sound of his voice seems at times to be that of the dead man. Peter becomes romantically drawn to Ann Curtis who is or was his daughter (Jeff and Marcia's daughter). Recognizing the incestuous nature of their relationship, Mrs. Curtis tries to keep the two young people apart. But how? Must she reveal the terrible secret of the final minutes she shared with her husband in order to keep this man from her (their?) daughter? Written by Mark Fleetwood <mfleetwo@mail.coin.missouri.edu>

Reincarnation of Peter Proud is now in the PUBLIC DOMAIN
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite films from the 70's when horror and suspense didn't necessarily mean slasher and gore.

There was a comment about about an "illegal copy" of this film on the web from VIDEORETRO. I have looked into it and found out something very enlightening. Just so you know, the film is in the Public Domain and the copyright was never renewed, so it looks like there is a lot of bad blood going around in addition to false allegations.

Sadly, it doesn't look like there will ever be a remastered DVD of this rare classic as the demand for the film is altogether too low. So a DVDR will have to do.
