Obscure and cheaply produced psychothriller
12 May 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

An insurance salesman (Chuck Jamison) and his recently deinstitutionalized alcoholic blonde wife (Kory Clark) move into a new house in Los Angeles. She has bloody visions of an axe murderer and severed body parts lying around the house. Turns out that the same house is a former murder site and the killer was never found. Ridiculous suspects turn up like a balding, sweaty gardener who crushes snails in his hand, a nosy neighbor inspired by Ruth Gordon in ROSEMARY'S BABY, her fat slob/pervert husband, a guy at a nuthouse and guest star Aldo Ray as a "retired" cop Larry Craig, who had similar visions of the house when he investigated the original murders.

This thriller with a rock-bottom budget (which I saw as STRAIGHT JACKET) has a little low-budget charm, but is slow moving, poorly made and pretty boring. Some videos say it was made in 1982 or 1987, but I've also seen the production year listed as 1978 (?)
