From Dan Curtis, the creative force behind TV’s gothic cult hit Dark Shadows, comes this eerie and engrossing haunted house thriller! Before the Rolf family (Karen Black, Oliver Reed and Lee H. Montgomery) can rent a slightly run down mansion for their summer vacation, their landlords, the Allardyce siblings (Burgess Meredith and Eileen Heckart), have one special request: the Rolfs must share the house with the reclusive old woman who lives on the top floor. The Rolfs agree and their vacation starts off swimmingly. But when a series of terrible accidents takes place, the house and its inhabitants begin to change.
