After doing some exploring, they find that an elderly couple is still living in the crumbling building.

The Soda Spring Spa was actually the Arroyo Del Valle Sanatorium, a treatment center for tuberculosis in Livermore, California which opened in 1918. With TB cases in decline, the sanatorium was closed in 1960 and sat vacant for more than a decade before the movie was filmed. The ruins were cleared in 1999, and Camp Arroyo was constructed on the site. See more »

The finale plays out under the end credits and the film concludes after the credits have ended. The filmmakers later stated the credits were devised as such so viewers would be forced to read them. See more »
"Warlock Moon" offered B-movie suspense, coupled with a small budget. The film was made in my hometown of Livermore, CA in 1972, but was held from release until 1975 because of reasons already commented upon by another poster.
The premiere was held at the Vine Cinema in Livermore. As I recall, the theater was packed with teens, mostly from the two high schools in town (Livermore and Granada). It was on a double bill with "The Other." Girls screamed in horror throughout the film, although in hindsight the film had little horror. One teen got tired of the screaming, and told the audience to shut up, which brought some laughs.
It was interesting to see scenes of Livermore on the screen...the public library, the abandoned TB center, the old Vineyard shopping center. If you grew up in Livermore in the 70s, you might remember this little film.
