The version broadcast on television contained a lot of footage not seen in the theatrical version. The footage was allegedly shot by Stephanie Rothman, new for the TV sale, not scenes deleted from the original version. This version was also available on VHS tape. The DVD release is the theatrical version. See more »

Despite a multitude of minor blemishes, RUBY stands as an effectually devised psychological/supernatural chiller which gainsays its deficient funding.
Piper Laurie turns out an impressive performance as Ruby, a hard-drinking harlot in ownership of a weatherbeaten old drive-in movie theater. In years past, she was a knockout gangster's moll whose man was murdered gangland style. Before he died, he vowed to return from the grave...a promise which, it seems, he has kept.
A cleverly formulated B quickie thick with gloom and disquietude, RUBY is an honorable short-order undertaking which emanates a pleasingly differential mood of foreboding creepiness.
