Not good ...not bad ... not evil ... not worth seeing ...............
24 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nice assortment of cult and over the hill actors cannot save this horror - comedy. Karen Black is the same whacked character you've seen in any number of her horror films. Michael Berryman is totally wasted as a writer/voyeur. Martine Beswicke as a séance medium overacts to the extreme. The rest of the oddball borders include the most stereotypical drunk ever, and Artie Johnson shows up for a paycheck as a Social Security investigator. Almost the entire movie takes place in a claustrophobic Victorian house, and the whole thing just sort of grinds on to a very underwhelming conclusion. Those curious only because of the unusual cast have been warned. - MERK
