Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this competent horror, Trish Van Devere inherits a house from an aunt that turns out to be haunted by a witch who looks exactly like her. The plot is thickened by a hearse that drives itself and Joseph Cotten as the local estate agent. Compared with Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, The Omen and The Amityville Horror, this wouldn't make a grasshopper jump. However, it's nicely made and features the veteran Cotten in his last major role.
