In New York City, Janice Templeton (Marsha Mason) is happily married to executive Bill Templeton (John Beck) and they live in a comfortable and fancy apartment with their eleven-year-old daughter Ivy (Susan Swift). 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 (Sir Anthony Hopkins) 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

This movie was often compared and likened to The Exorcist (1973), of which some public and critics were saying this movie was a rip-off, inspired by, part of a cycle, influenced by, a copy of, similar to, of the same ilk or genre, or a knock-off. It has been alleged that Susan Swift was directed to look like, resemble, and shown in particular camera angles to signify to audiences, Linda Blair from The Exorcist (1973). See more »
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.

this supernatural thriller takes a long while to get going.in fact,i found it laborious and considered turning it off.but i persevered.once it picked up,it wasn't half bad.Susan Swift is amazing as Ivy Templeton,a young girl plagued by horrific waking nightmares.and Marsha Mason is great as her terrified mother.the rest of the cast is simply OK,but not spectacular.Anthony Hopkins also stars,but doesn't really standout.and the man who played Ivy's father didn't really impress.plus,i found his character to be unlikable and frankly,stupid.but that's just my opinion.the movie didn't end the way i thought it would,and i'm still undecided bout whether it was a good ending or not.on the whole,i would not say this is a spectacular movie,but it does have a few terrifying moments.for me,Audrey Rose is a 6/10
