Surprisingly good. Zelda Rubinstein makes the film
Sleepy hollow and poltergeist were the first horror movies I’ve ever seen. Both scared the crap out of me. That’s well worth the watch.
Haunted house movies usually don’t work. This one does.
Watched this when I was way to young and it planted a deep seeded lifelong fear of clowns. Tight movie
Really enjoyed. Crazy to watch this one back and compare SFX with today.
A classic and imaginative ghost story that’s scary but not too scary, y’know? A good gateway horror for beginners.
My absolute favourite horror flick hands down. It had it all from the effects, to the creepy characters. It made you believe it's possible.
Though it’s a bit slow at times, this is a really fun movie with some impressive practical effects and iconic moments.
An absolute classic in the genre, which defines ghost related horror. Special effects do not live up to today’s standards, but still good.
So much 80s charm jammed into this movie. Horror fans will love the way this inspired the genre, others will see this is a genre gateway.
Steve Freeling lives with his wife, Diane, and their three children, Dana, Robbie, and Carol Anne, in Southern California where he sells houses for the company that built the neighborhood. It starts with just a few odd occurrences, such as broken dishes and furniture moving around by itself. However, when he realizes that something truly evil haunts his home, Steve calls in a team of parapsychologists led by Dr. Lesh to help before it's too late.
The Freeling family move in with Diane's mother in an effort to escape the trauma and aftermath of Carol Anne's abduction by the Beast. But the Beast is not to be put off so easily and appears in a ghostly apparition as the Reverend Kane, a religeous zealot responsible for the deaths of his many followers. His goal is simple - he wants the angelic Carol Anne.
Carol Anne has been sent to live with her Aunt and Uncle in an effort to hide her from the clutches of the ghostly Reverend Kane, but he tracks her down and terrorises her in her relatives' appartment in a tall glass building. Will he finally achieve his target and capture Carol Anne again, or will Tangina be able, yet again, to thwart him?
