See it if you ever get the chance
1 February 2005 | by staticeatSee all my reviews

This movie haunted me for years. I was 8 or 9 years old when I first saw it and it scared the hell out of me. Back then I was past the point of being afraid of "monsters" and such, but the opening scene in which a really young Eve Plumb( yes, "Jan" on The Brady Bunch) comes home from school, enters the empty house calling out for her mother and finds a bloody hand-print on the refrigerator just hit home with me. What would be a child's worst fear?? Losing their parent(s). The rest of the film is a decent enough murder mystery with some fairly big name 70s actors rounding out the cast. Watch for it in reruns on local TV; I have seen it a couple times over the years.
