Goofs

The characters are supposedly stuck in the house because they're snowed in, however the height of the snow outside actually keeps changing dramatically throughout the movie. It's extremely snowy in the beginning when everyone arrives, almost snow-free when Papa Doc runs outside in an attempt to save his wife, and finally modestly snowy again at the very end. See more »

Quotes

Ruth: Harvey, I have a headache, a toothache, a backache and I'm expecting the gout.
Harvey Beckman: Would an aspirin help?

I just finished watching this movie and I'm not sleeping right now.
16 April 2006 | by leehome1See all my reviews

This movie is messed up. If you can get past the first 1/2 hour of cheap gratuitous sex and horrid seventies music this movie will really do a number on your fragile sensibilities. I really had to make sure the front door was securely locked about five minutes ago. Oh my God, it's just wrong. A movie like this would never be made today with all the codes that are in place. It's about as unwatchable as Faces of Death which is not entertainment at all but exploitation at humankind's worst. These kids never crack a smile except when they are bickering with each other over futile nonsense. Whoever said there was a hopeless feeling to this movie is right. This is some creepy stuff.
