'70s horror movie hasn't aged well; violence and peril.

It has scattered moments all throughout that acquit themselves well as, if not top-shelf horror, then at least second-from-the-top.

Its pacing is off, there are too many go-nowhere subplots, & it seems just to come to a clunking halt at the end [but] the film's lack of commitment to any single reading of its narrative architecture is precisely what makes it so uncanny.

A pack of flies swarm all over Father Delaney -- then again, given Rod Steiger's howling performance as the priest, it could just be that the flies like reeking ham.

worst of all is the gore, of which there really isn't any... that rare horror film that has a body count of zero

July 25, 2002
Dry, dumb and periodically somewhat dull ... but still packs enough of a haunted house whallop to warrant a skeptical visit.

really more about the deep-seated, primal fear of family members inflicting violence on each other than it is about ghosts and demonic spirits.
