The psychiatrist guy is exhibiting clear bad guy behavior.


Psychoplasmics is the name of the program.

James Brolin’s hair and beard are perfect.


Family of six is murdered in their Long Island home. One year later, two suckers buy the death house from a scumbag old lady real estate agent.


As they tour the property, clips of the entire family getting blown away by a faceless gunman. BUT they already know.


I’m not sure if I can feel sorry for them.


A priest comes to bless the house and soon a bunch of flies cover him. It really sucks for him. Then a scary voice says “OUT” and it’s pretty spooky.


This is actually a movie about the dangers of not properly insulating your home.


Very long “sensual scene” between the man and woman but the kid interrupts. No fucking for these two.


The dad decides to go for a scary night walk.

Nun shows up and leaves because she feels sick. She does a terrible puke take out the car.


Most scares in this movie are window-based.


Oh they are blaming witches now!!
