This movie creeped me out, with the old lady we never see shut up in the attic, dreams of a wicked funeral hearse driver, unscheduled home renovations, a father trying to drown his son in the pool, and that final heart-stopping conclusion. They did it good and scary in this one. Oliver Reed, Karen Black and Bette Davis and Lee Montgomery play their roles of a family living in madness and fear wonderfully. The whole gardening theme was unique. I liked the photo collection upstairs. There's no real devil or ghosts involved; it's quite unnamable, which makes it scarier for some reason.
