Trivia

This is Linda Blair's only portrayal as a mother in waiting in a feature film. Also interesting to note is that the father is never once mentioned or referred to. Blair had, however, also played a pregnant woman in her earlier television guest appearance in Murder, She Wrote: Murder Takes the Bus (1985). See more »

Goofs

After the helicopter leaves the island, it is the middle of the night when Leslie and Gary first go into the house, yet it is the middle of the day when they finally get upstairs - all in the space of a few seconds. See more »

Quotes

Jerry Giordano: They've got a lot of legends about this island. Witches and rainbows and shit.

User Reviews

* * out of 4.

A group of people are stranded at an isolated hotel by an evil witch (Hildegard Knef) who possesses them and kills them. I don't understand why the rating for this film is so low on IMDB. It's well made by the standards of the horror genre and featuring a good performance by Knef, some seriously scary scenes, and good effects. It is however unrelently mean and cruel. Unrated; Extreme Violence, Rape, and Profanity.
