Set in London, this haunted house effort begins with a truly a gruesome scene in which young mother Julia (Mia Farrow) desperately tries to save her choking daughter by performing a tracheotomy with a kitchen knife. It's to no avail, however, and her daughter dies. After getting over a nervous breakdown, Julia leaves her husband (Keir Dullea) and moves into an old, creaky Victorian house where spooky things happen. Her husband is found in the basement with his throat slit. Her boyfriend (Tom Conti) is electrocuted in the bathtub. Is Julia committing the murders, or is it the ghostly child who was murdered near the house 30 years ago? Filmed and released in England in 1976 as FULL CIRCLE, this movie flopped badly and went unreleased Stateside until 1981, when it was unveiled under a new title and still failed to find its audience.
