Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

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.
