Just thinking of this movie scares me!
16 April 2004 | by dwieselqSee all my reviews

I saw this once when I was a kid (around 8)...all I remember is the opening scene, it scared the @#$% out of me!...a house, someone coming home, and blood everywhere...very chilling. Plus, I lived on Greenville Road so the fear "hit home" even more.

That 70's made-for-TV-movies genre is greatly under-appreciated and unrecognized. Other movies that I remember about the same time that were really creepy (you might too):

  • "When Michael Calls" (Ben Gazzara, Elizabeth Ashley, Micheal Douglas)


  • "The Screaming Woman" (Olivia DeHavilland)


  • "Picture Mommy Dead" (Zsa Zsa Gabor)


  • "How Awful About Allen" (Anthony Perkins)


  • "Two On a Guillotine" (Connie Stevens)


  • "The Victim" (Elizabeth Montgomery)
