    If these walls could talk... the screams would wake the dead. Based on the chilling best-seller, this spooky study in psychological terror throws open the doors to your deepest, darkest fears!

    The Long Island colonial house on the river’s edge seemed perfect. Quaint, spacious and affordable, it was just what George and Cathy Lutz had been looking for. But looks can be deceiving... and their new dream home soon becomes a hellish nightmare as the walls begin to drip blood and satanic forces haunt them with sheer, unbridled evil. Now, with their lives - and their souls - in danger, the Lutzes must run as fast as they can from the home they once loved... or fall prey to its terrifying power!

    Starring James Brolin, Margot Kidder and Oscar-winner Rod Steiger, this bone-chilling special effects laden thriller will hit you where you live.

    8 / 10
    Classic late 70s horror (one of the first films that most of us rented in the early days of video)...Carrie & George move into their dream home,but quickly turns into a nightmare! When the previous owners were murdered by their son,events soon come back to haunt the new owners!...What amazed me was the picture quality of this disc.I wasn`t really expecting much from such an old film (& the video quality was awful),but a nice clean transfer,sharp & colourful!..Sound is mono,but is clear and deep enough through a surround.No features to speak of (apart from an original trailer) & a multitude of subtitles & audio tracks. A great job by MGM!
