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.

creepy gory not for everybody
4 April 1999 | by (ohio) – See all my reviews

Creepy gory horror movie that is not for everybody. Linda Blair and family, David Hasselhoof and wife and a few reporters come to stay on an island to look at a house. It turns out this was once where a witch got burned at the stake and now she and her demons are back to get revenge. Some scenes are very gory and hard to watch. One woman gets her lips sewn together and then is hung upside down in a chimney while the fire is going . Ouch! Ending leaves room for a sequel. Acting is ok as is the direction.
