Audience Reviews for The Haunting Passion
A married couple moves into a new house on the beach. Dan is a depressed retired professional football player who struggles to accept that he is no longer able to play. He neglects his wife, Julia in his depression often leaving her alone in the house. Mysterious occurrences start happening in the house when Julia is on her own. She begins sleepwalking during erotic dreams. Her reoccurring dreams always involve the same mysterious man. She is unsure if her mind is right or if a haunted figure is seducing her. To the audience, it is all too straightforward and lacks the excitement of not knowing what is happening or what comes next. It is unfortunately less about a haunting than a married couple that will not communicate with each other. I do not hold a television movie to the same standard, but even so, this is not particularly good. The story is flat, and the sense of mystery and suspense is only mild. Most of the acting feels like it belongs in a soap opera. Horror movies do not demand great acting, but it should be better than this. It mainly serves as a vehicle to sport a provocative Jane Seymour in steamy solo scenes made acceptable for TV. If you want to see a 24-year-old Jane Seymour, then have at it, but otherwise you are better off with any number of other haunted house stories.
