the lukewarm touch of evil...
7 October 2005 | by Jonny_NumbSee all my reviews

With good intentions and a title that's impossible to live up to, this early-70's movie of the week finds its strength in scattered moments of suspense and performances that give the hammy material every chance to transcend its lower tier. A pre-"Legend of Hell House" Pamela Franklin (cute as a button, a dead ringer for Thelma from "Scooby-Doo") infiltrates a girl's school to try to find out why her sister committed suicide; she is aided in her quest by a pre-"Charlie's Angels" Kate Jackson. The adults are, like, squaresville, and the student body seems to be harboring some far-out secret, which leads to a totally unsatisfying climax. The restrictions of network television show throughout–despite being set in an all-girls school, there is no flesh on display (not even skimpy negligee), and instead of throat-slashings, we have to make do with death by bamboo sticks.
