Sally and Alex Farnham (Kim Darby, Jim Hutton) have inherited a lovely old Victorian home that harbors a deadly secret. In the bowels of a closed-off room lurks a horde of hideously evil creatures, just waiting for a chance to get out--to claim their next victim. Curiosity gets the best of Sally and she unlocks a forbidden door in the downstairs study. Suddenly violent poltergeists are able to roam the house in the dark--and their target is their liberator.

A low-budget, but surprisingly effective made for TV horror movie from 1973. A couple move into a house only to find they're not alone. Preston Struges vet William Demarest plays the handyman who knows what's going on. Some of the special effects are a little dated, but it's still tense and creepy. There was a Guilermo del Toro produced remake with Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce.

This movie is so much better than the Katie Holmes remake. This ABC movie of the week scared me and my cousin quite badly, back In the day. No gore fest. Kim Darby slowly realizes the house she inherited is not the charming old home she envisioned. Quite the opposite. Her fear grows as she researches what really happened to her uncle.

Despite not knowing anything about Kim Darby, I rather enjoyed this campy, retro horror movie. In particular, I enjoyed the creepy demon voices, especially at the beginning of the film. The optional commentary was funny and entertaining to listen to as well.

With Kim Darby, its actually a movie from 1973...was mislead by it stating "DVD - 2011" thinking it was the new one with Katie Holmes...silly me.
