Our Score
This modern variation on The Old Dark House formula finds Californians Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott stranded with a group of strangers - the Who's Roger Daltrey among them - in an English country mansion. As the guests are bumped off one by one, a Satanism subplot is introduced into the already unfocused proceedings to add extra suspense - it doesn't. A botched supernatural thriller with only some fiendishly clever death schemes to commend it.


An American are couple coerced into taking refuge in a sinister-looking English country house, oblivious to the terrors they are about to face. Occult horror, starring Katharine Ross, Sam Elliott, John Standing and Ian Hogg.
