Storyline

An aura of mystery and tales of supernatural activity surrounds Crowhaven Farm, when it comes into the possession of Ben and Maggie Porter, a couple moving to the farm to try for a chance to save their troubled marriage. Maggie immediately senses that all is not right, and that perhaps the farm's reputation for being haunted by restless spirits and being the home of an ancient coven of witches is true.

Sinister little tale of witchcraft
5 January 2007 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

There was some good stuff made for television during the seventies, and while Crowhaven Farm doesn't stand tall as one of the best horror films ever made, it's a very decent one that is certainly worth seeing. The plot doesn't really offer anything new, and simply follows the idea of a coven of witches, centred around the sinister Crowhaven Farm. The plot focuses on Ben and Maggie Porter, a couple that inherit the farm after the death of her father. Their marriage is tainted by the fact that Maggie cannot bear children, and the couple move to the farm in the hope that the change of scenery will help to pick up their relationship. Under the direction of experienced TV director Walter Grauman, a good cast gives way to a thoroughly interesting tale of witchcraft. Grauman does well with the atmosphere, and while most of the film is build up for the ending; things such as the haunting music score and numerous plot revelations ensure that the film never dries up. Of course, all this build up needs a good climax, and the film gets just that with an ending that definitely justifies getting there. Overall, this is obviously a little thin and it won't be winning any 'greatest horror film ever' awards...but it's good stuff and comes recommended.
