The Curse of the Open Window
14 March 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In medieval Scotland, "Earl of Culdane" Torin Thatcher blames the death of handsome son Donald Harron (as Jamie) on his affair with sexy Pat Michon (as Catherine). The villagers claim the shapely dancer is a witch, so Mr. Thatcher orders her to be burned at the stake. Before she is taken to the wood, Ms. Michon shouts out a curse on Thatcher's family, "Your the first born son died before his father, so will it be in every generation! I curse you! I curse you! I curse you!"

Flash-forwarding to the 1950s, Mr. Harron (now playing descendant William) frantically waits while his father lays in a death bed. Although he appears hale and hearty, Harron is convinced he will somehow die before his ailing father, extending the family curse to another generation. Wife Fintan Meyler (as Harriet) thinks otherwise... "Doomsday" could only be more predictable if you played it backwards. But the cast is entertaining, especially the dependable Thatcher.
