For a 70s film, it's chilling from the bleak imagery shading the nice production merits from the make-up department to the relied performative efforts, furthering whatever effects it had successfully mustered under such limited scale, even though the fear factor's fright understandably aged to acceptably not meet the grown expectations but stand as influential.

I saw this movie as a child on TV in the early 1970's and NEVER forgot as it scared me for many years. I even remember eating Morel Mushrooms that my friend Jay Bailey and I, had picked the previous couple days after school and his mother breaded & fried them. It was so traumatic I remember watching and eating, with elbows on a pillow and sleeping bag while I was eating those mushrooms. That time is etched into my memory. Especially when they are dragging her down and she uses a flashbulb on camera that she pulls off an end table or some such to try and get away and the husband trying to get it the house but cannot until it's too late. I would like to see it again to see if what is in my memory is accurate.
This is one of my all time favorite horror films. And has to be one of the best made for tv horror films ever. Make sure you watch this at night it makes the film even more creepy.
stupid but oddly compelling
A decent traditional horror.
Suspense and Fear...great Movie.
What a sadistically weird movie this was! Have you ever thought you saw something out of the corner of your eye, but when you looked directly at it, it wasn't there? Of course, it was in the shadows, so if it really WERE there, you wouldn't know for sure, would you? That's what this movie is about... Things that go bump in the night can be very scary--Super-effective and this film proves you don't need a huge budget to make a very good movie. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, My Ass, Be Very afraid, Very, Very Afraid... Old School Scary!!
A classic little creepy that I much prefer to the underwhelming remake. The movie hasn't aged amazingly well but overall it's still nice and eerie for fans of the genre.
I really like this movie. It's actually good for a TV movie. It's also a lot better than the remake.
Creepy low-budget horror that does enough to provide a scare.
