Starring Zohra Lampert, Barton Heyman, Gretchen Corbett
One of the most fascinating horror films of the 1970s, this low-budget cult gem conjures an otherworldly mood of dreamlike dread. Recovering from a nervous breakdown, the unstable Jessica (Zohra Lampert) relocates to a small Connecticut town where she finds herself tormented by ghostly apparitions and a vampiric presence. Could she really be losing her mind again? Channeling the psychological unease of Henry James’s “The Turn of the Screw,” director John D. Hancock weaves a spellbinding tale of terrifying ambiguity.
