Storyline

A WWII fighter plane crashes and although the pilot escapes, his partner burns. Years later, Maggie and Harry Dowl arrive in England to inspect a house left to Maggie by her mother. The house has a dilapidated tennis court, but this seems to have some force which takes over the daughter of John Bray, the local holy man, as well as causing tennis balls to gush blood and kill people with animated nets.

Scary! At least for kids
1 October 2004 | by SlameyeSee all my reviews

I watched Tennis Court in the summer of 1985 (I was 12) at my grandparents' summer house on a small black and white TV, and it scared the SH*T out of me. Later in life, friends my age also state this as one of the most terrifying films ever. If you think the film is mediocre, try showing it to your children (I wasn't traumatized my it, just thrillingly freaked out). It's probably rated for viewers a bit older, but a good scare is never out of place. And I'm sure more timid adults will have trouble sleeping at least if watched under the right conditions. And the film itself is interesting given the little twist (I don't think this spoils the plot) on who may actually be able to haunt somewhere. Is it only the dead?
