When Jessica, a psychologically fragile woman, leaves the mental institution, she heads off to an old farmhouse with her husband and a friend of theirs to start her life over again. One night, they take in a gorgeous and mysterious drifter, sing songs, and decide to have a seance.
After the seance, Jessica begins to see and hear things which may or may not be occurring. Her visions and hallucinations lead her to believe that the beautiful young drifter may be a vampire.
Director John Hancock does an incredible job of balancing tension and atmosphere. This is a film that thrives on atmosphere and the rich characterization of Jessica - played here by Zohra Lampert - and it never fails to bring chills.
This is one of the classic horror films of the seventies - one that has gained a well-deserved cult following over the years. The Blu-ray is fantastic - it is a gorgeous transfer, looking better than the film ever has.
Special features include an audio commentary with the director and producer, an interview with the score composer, an interview with film historian, Kim Newman, a featurette on the films locations, and a trailer.
