Storyline

Janet inherits her mother's house when her mother dies in a mental institution. When she first arrives at the house, she meets her cousins Hattie and Jonathon, who welcome her warmly. She decides to stay at the house and fix it up so that it won't be condemned. However, neither the house nor Hattie and Jonathon are what they seem to be, and Janet begins to fear for her own sanity as a terrifying past merges with an equally terrifying present.

Sinister Doings
14 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Lynn Loring stars as Janet, a young woman who has recently inherited an old mansion from her mother, who died in a mental institution. Living at the house already are her cousins Hattie & Jonathan(played by Geraldine Page & Rip Torn) who have let the place fall to ruin. Determined to clean it up, her cousins appear to be friendly, but in reality a hidden agenda is in play, as sinister doings are afoot when it seems the past & present get mixed up in the house, threatening to drive Janet insane, just like her mother... Despite a somewhat predictable plot with some loose ends, the fine cast and spooky atmosphere compensate, and the ending is still effective.
