Mediocre & Forgettable.

Failed pilot to a proposed TV series by Dan Curtis("The Night Stalker") features a little known cast in a story about a woman who contacts two paranormal researchers to investigate her reputedly haunted house she has inherited.

Oddly video-taped, rather than filmed, which makes the whole thing look cheap and amateurish, though script isn't too bad really, and there is some atmosphere to be had, it just fails to come to life adequately to engage the viewer, though it may have cult possibilities.

Was released on DVD as a special feature with the similarly titled "Dead Of Night" TV film from 1977, which was a more successful effort, though a TV series never developed from either project.
