Trivia

The film is set during a terrible rainstorm, but during the filming production "suffered" from near-perfect weather conditions, so 100,000 gallons of water had to be streamed through rain towers to achieve the desired effect. Ironically, a week after filming was completed, torrential rains flooded the area. See more »

This is the movie that scared the @(("@ out of me when i was a toddler!
17 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

i remember watching an elizabeth montgomery movie when i was maybe 5 years old (if that) and to this day i can remember this movie (in just bits and pieces). it was the movie i remembered all throughout my life because i was sooo scared. I think i remember the story part of it and the house constantly being dark. the main part that was the most freaky to me was Elizabeth walking around the house all dark and then there was someone in the field outside. At the time I thought i was an old witch but the memory of it is now way hazy so i can't really remember who it was but it was someone definitely in a field outside lurking...and that part is what freaked me out the most. i really wish i could see this movie again. if anyone knows how to get a copy please email me at valid908@yahoo.com
