Although Bette Davis has star billing there’s not much reason for it as the film revolves around teenager Lynn-Holly Johnson who just happens to resemble the long-lost daughter of Davis.
Johnson’s family (Carroll Baker, David McCallum and Kyle Richards) rent the huge country house belonging to Davis, who lives in a nearby cottage and depends on the big-house rentals for income. The pretitle sequences establish the house and woods (which actually appear to encroach on the house at times) with being something less than fun city. Whatever is out there, however, remains undiscovered even after the film has ended.
The acting and writing are barely professional but the art direction, especially Alan Hume’s stunning camerawork, gives the pic a gloss.
