Storyline

In New York, Janice Templeton is happily married to executive Bill Templeton and they live in a comfortable and fancy apartment with their eleven-year-old daughter Ivy. One day, Janice is stalked by a weirdo and she tells her husband. Soon afterwards the stranger contacts them and invites the couple to meet him in a restaurant. Elliot Hoover tells Janice and Bill that his daughter Audrey Rose died eleven years ago, burned in a car crash, and her soul has been reincarnated in Ivy's body. Bill and Janice believe that Elliot is nuts, and Bill tells his lawyer to get a restraining order against Elliot. However, Ivy has dreadful nightmares and only Elliot is able to calm her down. When Elliot abducts Ivy, Bill and Janice go to court to have him arrested. But Elliot wants to prove that Ivy and Audrey Rose are the same soul. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

The school for girls where Ivy was sent during the trial was administrated by a character dressed as a Catholic nun and addressed as "mother superior". In the mid 1970s Catholic schools still had not fully embraced the celebration of Halloween due to its secular roots. Therefore, it is highly unlikely a Catholic school would allow a ritual with such pagan undertones as students dancing around a large bonfire to melt a giant snowman while chanting blessings for an early spring.

Not quite up to the standards of Exorcist or Omen, but still good
24 May 1999 | by Barnaby MarriottSee all my reviews

Audrey Rose is a very intelligent horror movie, but it is not as creepy as its original source - the novel by Frank De Felitta. On the acting front, Marsha Mason is both believable and sympathetic as the frantic mother, Janice Templeton. It's a shame that both Sir Anthony Hopkins and John Beck seem to have their minds on other matters, as if they were not enjoying being a part of this movie. Making a fantastic debut, Susan Swift is quite remarkable in the dual roles of Ivy Templeton and Audrey Rose Hoover. The climax, however, is more depressing than moving.
