Lost Childhood Favorite

I have been trying to remember the title of this movie my whole life. My sisters and I used to watch this on t.v. almost every Sunday. It scared the crap out of us! It's been years since I've seen it- I'd like it to be released on DVD. I'm working on collecting all the movies from my childhood.

Everybody has a different opinion on old Disney movies. I prefer them to the newer ones, myself. Some will probably say this movie is corny- but it's a good old movie.
