    I have been waiting years for this movie yo be released and either shown on TCM or become available on DVD. I remember seeing it with my teenage Aunts when I was very young, and it was just downright creepy. I STILL can vividly recall the children writing in blood on the bathroom mirrors, and drawing flowers on it! My Aunts were terrified and although I was very young, it scared me so much it seems like that night was yesterday! Not much of a trailer shown here, and maybe by today's standards it will not be as creepy as we remember. But I still cannot wait to see it! Just like the original "When a Stranger Calls", which had a completely different and horrific ending than the remake, sometimes the horror of classic noir is way better. And hey, with Stella Stevens and the great Ms. WINTERS, IT is worth a look!

    as a young boy, i remember seeing the tail end of this movie/i have waited 20 years to get my hands on this dvd/it was worth the wait! A beautifully crafted whodunit by bernard girard using the canada island locations! this movie is not a slasher movie or high suspense, rather a very sophisticated story of a very sticky situation of sibling rivalry and past secrets coming back to haunt the hardy family! Of course, there is the death of the hardy parent's death's which the children were accused of, but never convicted for/the beauty of the 5 minute opening is the pointalism photography which blocks some of the action to diffuse what is really going on, keeping us in the dark so we must watch the rest of the movie/the movie is very low key drawing us in/stella stevens and shelley winters have never looked better/each character is well defined and the acting is superb/especially the dog carrying the severed hand around the grounds of the house/i will not give anything else away! please view!

    Don't get me wrong, I love both Shelley Winters and Stella Stevens, but this movie is a dumb and somewhat dull horror movie.

  • stella stevens played a great part in this movie
