When a storm strands a group on a Massachusetts island where the only dwelling is an old hotel supposedly haunted by the ghost of a former German actress (Knef), the result is the standard horror film as each of the cast is picked off one-by-one.Written by

This is Linda Blair's only portrayal as a mother in waiting in a feature film. Also interesting to note is that the father is never once mentioned or referred to. Blair had, however, also played a pregnant woman in her earlier television guest appearance in Murder, She Wrote: Murder Takes the Bus (1985). See more »

The original UK video release (as "Ghosthouse II") was cut by 21 secs by the BBFC to remove a shot of blood spurting from a slashed neck, plus heavily editing the nudity during the orgy scene. The 2001 DVD release (as "Witchcraft") restores the violence from the opening sequence but also uses a slow-motion effect to remove the nudity from the orgy. As the BBFC state that they made no cuts to the film it would appear to have been pre-edited before submission. See more »
I like seeing Linda Blair playing in an actual "horror" movie again. I had been disappointed with her in most everything since the "Exorcist "movies (Which i loved). What was up with all of those nasty "B-movies" she did?
David Hassellhoff on the other hand, all i could do is laugh. He is not cut out to be a horror movie actor. David needs to stick to "Knight Rider" or "Baywatch".
All around, this is an awesome movie. Even for the eighties, this was an awesome film. It has horror, action, and drama. It is a suspenseful, and I loved the way Linda Blair turned out.
