Wishing a very Happy Thanksgiving to all. We pick up the theme of pilgrims and witchery with Crowhaven Farm (1970), an Aaron Spelling Production, starring Hope Lange and Paul Burke as a childless couple who look for a fresh start in an ancestral farm house. Look for the venerable Cyril Delevanti (The Twilight Zone, Thriller, Night Gallery) as the elder town historian who tells of Crowhaven Farm’s dark past, a legacy that calls to its new inhabitants.
DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW ranks as a high watermark for the horror genre, not just in television, but in any medium. Directed by Frank DeFelitta (Audrey Rose, The Entity) from the script by J.D. Feigelson and starring Larry Drake and Charles Durning, it’s a terrifying exercise in otherworldly justice.
The chase is afoot with 1973’s SHE CRIED MURDER, starring Lynda Day George, fresh off of Mission Impossible, and Telly Savalas, right before KOJAK hit. Who loves ya, baby? TV TERROR loves ya.
Ahoy! It’s a telefilm about shipwreck and survival, 1975’s THE LAST SURVIVORS.
