Trivia

When BCI Eclipse obtained the rights to release Mausoleum on DVD, they could not find any original elements to transfer. This means the original elements either no longer exist or are temporarily lost. BCI was forced to use a damaged print instead for the DVD release. Because of the damage, BCI decided to release it as a double feature instead of a single release as they first planned. See more »

Goofs

When Dr. Andrews plays back the audio recording of his hypnosis session with Susan, the high pitched "demon cue" in the movie's soundtrack has also been captured on Dr. Andrews' cassette. See more »

Snoozeoleum
18 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Susan Farrell, as a young girl runs off into the cemetery after her mother's funeral only to meet a demon in a mausoleum and get possessed. A decade later Susan is seeing a therapist. Her family is worried about her because she's acting the same way as her mom before she died. Her eyes grow green, a buzzing sound emanates and people die. Horrar fans have gotten used to bad, wooden acting so telling anyone that wouldn't detour the potential person who gets suckered into watching this at all. Nor will the SUB-sub-par special effects. But trust me on this, this 'film' is not worth ANYone's time. Go watch the VASTLY superior (to this movie at least) "Night of the Demons"

My Grade: D-

Eye Candy: Bobbie Bresee shows breast and ass
