Storyline

Joan Fairchild is a woman traveling along a dark rural road when she accidentally runs her car off the road. She immediately has an hallucinatory vision of a drowning woman in a lake, and seeks refuge in a large house nearby. Inside the house are a group of young people interested in experimenting with the occult and ESP. They offer her shelter for the night, but they hardly have her best interests in mind: under the guidance of their sinister leader, they intend to use their psychic abilities to telepathically send Joan distressing images of her deceased daughter--images that they hope will actually frighten Joan to death.

No amount of Sixth Sense on Joan's part
4 April 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

was able to provide her with the right feeling about appearing on this series and consequently we are left with the final jigsaw piece of camp that completed Crawford's 1000 piece set. It's beyond criticism really, no one could possibly argue that it's in any way superior television. She's game, I guess, in a trouper sort of way. But it's a nervy, jagged way to take a curtain call (though there is a moment where she conceals herself from her would be attackers behind a curtain. Gee, I would never have thought to look there. So much for a Sixth Sense). You feel bad for the woman, you really do. And yet, determined as she was, maybe she left us with an enduring legacy, a message ...wait...I'm getting something...yep, ''keep on keeping on until you can give no more''. Any sane actress would have called it quits after this, so we can have no doubt about Crawford's lucidity in her final years. That should give us a certain solace.
