A couple who are vacationing take a detour and end up in an old inn. The wife decides that she would like to stay there, and somehow a room that the innkeeper has kept close for over twenty years opens and draws the wife into it and chooses to stay in there. All of a sudden all sorts of weird things begin to happen. Like the wife has a change in attitude. And a ghost speaks to her from the mirror in the room, and tells of secrets that her parents have from her. And learns that she's there to fulfill an evil legacy. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Haunted By Her Past Is A Terrific 1980s Made For TV Movie

Haunted By Her Past is a terrific and fun made for television movie of the 1980s.I saw this for the first time when it originally aired on television in 1987.I thought it was a lot of fun to watch.This movie has a little bit of everything. It has some light romance, mystery, suspense,and even a few laughs.Haunted By Her Past is one cheesy and corny movie, but I love it anyway.I love the setting of the story. it is set somewhere around Salem, Massachusetts on the upper east coast of the U.S. I could not tell for sure, but the movie looks like it might have been shot on location in some parts.The story centers around a very old inn, and that is what caught my attention right away.The cast was fun. The beautiful Susan Lucci as the main character. John James does a very good job portraying the very concerned husband to Susan Lucci's character.Remember John James in the television series of the 1980s called Dynasty?Finola Hughes was such fun as the saucy wench.She is a wonderful actress.Marcia Straussman was interesting in her part as the friend. I think that she was in the 1970s television series called Welcome Back Kotter as Kotter's wife.If you want to see a lighthearted cheesy fun movie then I recommend this movie.I have this movie on VHS tape.
