2/5. Mostly just a boring film.

"Bay Coven" (a.k.a. Bay Cove and Eyes of the Demon) is a made for TV thriller/horror movie with a decent script and an interesting (if slow moving) story. The low budget of the film shows, with some of the sets looking not very convincing at all (particularly the cemetery) and the story isn't really bringing anything new to the genre of "cult vs. regular person" but it's a decent film that will appeal to people that want a horror film that doesn't include teenagers being decapitated or a lot of real scares. (VHS, October 5, 2012)
A real piece of garbage, Bay Cove--you can get the plot of the film if you add an "N" to the end of Cove--that thoroughly disappoints despite its intriguing cast list. Bay Cove might be good for a few laughs, but it is good for little else. Badly filmed, poorly acted, and about as a scary as someone with a sheet over their head, the film lacks anything to recommend it. It feels like a horror film made with the standards of a Lifetime movie of the week or an episode of Days of our Lives.
Saw this a long time ago on TV
It's supposed to be a horror flick but it's pretty badly put together, you can watch it for a good laugh. For that, it gets two extra stars from me.
just watched it tonight. it was alright, the old man in the attic was especially creepy.
This was a very predictable run-of-the-mill made for TV film. It might be worth one viewing only, but that's about it. Nothing original, and the cast is full of has-been TV actors, along with a couple of up-and comers for that time.
Bay Cove (aka "Bay Coven" "The Devils of Bay Cove", and "Strangers in Town")
Starring: Pamela Sue Martin, Tim Matheson, Barbara Billingsley, Woody Harrelson, and James Sikking
Director: Carl Shenkel
Linda and Jerry, a pair of Boston-based Yuppies (Martin and Matheson) get a deal that's too good to be true on a grand old house in the tiny island community of Bay Cove. Once relocated, though, Linda discovers that the neighborhood has gone to hell--literally, as all their new neighbors may be immortal Satanists.
"Bay Cove" is a low-key, a little-too-slow-in-the-build-up, completely predictable made-for-TV horror movie that would fit perfectly on the Lifetime or Hallmark Channel. The acting is mostly average (with Martin being the bottom of the pack, never seeming like she's quite awake), but the camera work is well-done. Although the movie makes some half-hearted attempts at playing the "is she crazy or not" game, it really doesn't manage to shed enough doubt on what's going on to make the audience question Linda's findings--yes, the new neighbors are indeed immortal witches who are up to no good. The film is at its best and scariest for a few scenes toward the end, but otherwise it just sort of moves along its plot-track, dilligently giving us the "something ain't right with the townies" mainstays and ultimately reaching its similarly by-the-book climax.
There's nothing terribly bad about this film, but there's also nothing that's particularly good. Leave it on the shelf at the DVD store, and watch it only on late-night TV if there's nothing else available but infomercials.
