A fashion model moves into a house inhabited (on the top floor) by a blind priest. She begins having strange physical problems, has trouble sleeping at night, and has some nasty flashbacks of her attempted suicide. She complains to the real estate agent of the noise caused by her strange neighbors, but finds out that the house is only occupied by the priest and herself, and ultimately discovers that she has been put in the house for a reason.

The book on John Milton that Professor Ruzinsky hands to Lerman was edited by Maurice Kelley (1903-1996), an actual Milton authority. See more »
(at around 4 mins) When Allison is filming a shampoo commercial, she and another model are seen whipping their hair around. The footage was reversed, so the actresses' hair is moving backwards. See more »
Look at this. William O'Rourke. Father Halliran? William O'Rourke, disappeared July 12, 1952 after attempted suicide.
They're the same man. William O'Rourke became a priest named Halliran.
Yes, but why?
I just open doors.

"Rosemary's Baby" meets "The Exorcist" in this trashy and derivative freak show, which tries to cash in on every occult movie cliché imaginable. In it, a beautiful actress/model who's in a shaky relationship moves into a glamorous apartment at very reasonable rent, only to discover it's haunted by various weirdos. She has the usual health problems (migranes and fainting spells) and the freaks who are her neighbors are becoming increasingly menacing. Many of the scenes are meant to be shocking, but are merely embarrassing and hard to watch. Sylvia Miles and Beverly D'Angelo have a particularly vulgar scene. The one thing one wonders is how did they get all these high-powered stars to take on supporting roles. Also, one is surprised by how many actors with bit parts who were unknown at the time have since gone on to successful careers. It's a virtual galaxy of the stars of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. There are so many, it's distracting. However, playing "spot the star" is far more entertaining than anything that happens in this film. The main character had attempted suicide once and has thoughts of it again. If I had been forced to watch this film repeatedly, I might have attempted suicide. The climax to the film was particularly unpleasant without being scary. The only pleasure besides the cast would be the big budget, which brings a professional veneer to a graze Z script. What an overwhelming waste of Hollywood talent and audiences time.
