The Evil

For a gloomy night, "The Evil" is perfect to watch.
This 1978 horror film, directed by Gus Trikonis and stars Richard Crenna, Joanna Pettet, Andrew Prine and Cassie Yates, is low budget and delivers. A couple buy a large old house with a few creepy gargoyle heads and a statue in the yard. It doesn't seem like much until hauntings begin. There is a basement with a locked trap door, certain to be the culprit behind unpleasant sulphur smells and a bad feeling. Friends arrive to fix the crumbling house but there is a ghost trying to warn them, and a dog that goes missing. Before long, the house turns upon everyone.
This film is atmospheric with the sounds of thunder and lightning. Although classed as a Horror, it comes across to me as a supernatural mystery thriller.
I rate this 8/10.
What was amusing: Wait for it.
Howls ^^
