Movie Monday - Superstition
[James Houghton; Albert Salmi; Lynn Carlin; Larry Pennell; Jacquelyn Hyde; Robert Symonds; Heidi Bohay]
Plot: The Rev. David Thompson discovers that the inviting pond in the backyard of his new home was used to execute an evil witch three centuries ago -- and her spirit still lurks beneath the surface. Vowing to seek her revenge on anyone who ventures near her watery grave, the sorceress begins to hunt down her new neighbors in a bloody horror spree that turns Thompson's dream house into a violent nightmare.
I thought this might be a fun, creepy, 80s horror flick and I wanted to like it. But... it just was such a hodge-podge of bad acting, bad writing and miss opportunities that I couldn't enjoy it. Bleh.
Recommended for completist horror/gore fans, at least.
