After a stint in a psychiatric facility Jessica, her husband and a friend move to remote farm they have recently purchased. There they find a young woman by the name of Emily living in the house and they invite her to stay. When Jessica goes for a swim in the lake, she sees a body just below the water's surface. When they go into the village to sell some old furniture, they learn that a woman by the name of Abigail Bishop drowned in the lake and her body was never found. Local folklore has that Abigail is now a vampire roaming the countryside. A mute blond girl leads her to the body of a dead man but the body is not there when Jessica goes for help. Jessica and those around begin to wonder if she is losing her mind.Written by
The house used for the exteriors of the Bishop house in the film still stands in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. Since the film, though, the house has been repainted and now has a widow's walk on the roof. See more »
Throughout the movie (most notably at exactly 7:01 into the movie), you see the license plate of the hearse they drive is a New York plate, 1Z-7663. However, If you pause it just right at exactly 41:27 into the movie, you can clearly see the car's front license plate reads 4G-3375. Later on in the movie (at exactly 1:00:08) you see the front plate is back to 1Z-7663. See more »
[Emily and Duncan have just finished playing a song together]
Wow, terrific! He's really something! I mean, really.
He's an important man. He was with the Philharmonic.
Are you going to try to find someplace around here to play?
No, he's gonna farm. Raise apples, have a garden... get back to nature. He's a nut.
*I'm* the nut.

Scared me 30 years ago and scares me now. Very effective.
The scariest movie you will never see on TV. This movie should have been a hit. Since it wasn't, it should have 'cult' status. Why it doesn't, I don't know. Genre - horror. Sub-genre haunted house, return from the dead, psychopath, strange little town. Filmed on location in CT with that great "B" movie feel. The lack of special effects and gore make it all the more effective. Simple but amazingly good soundtrack. I saw this movie 30 years ago and it really haunted me. I found an import on DVD for which the quality is quite good. Many viewers see the movie as an enigma or riddle. Having seen it several times now I think the title says it all. Pay close attention to who either gets or almost gets killed. Why is the little town populated only by men? The actress playing Emily needs no makeup to look like just what she is playing in the movie. A few things about the movie don't hang together and the continuity might suffer a little. But have no doubt, it is one very scary and effective film.
