Synopsis : Roger Corman gave a leg up to a great many of Hollywood's biggest directors including ex Happy Days star Ron Howard and Francis Ford Coppola who made his directorial debut in Ireland on Corman's production, Dementia 13. The Haloran family are gathering to carry out a morbid ritual to remember the demise of a drowned relative. The family bicker and plot while an axe murderer begins to stalk the grounds. Soon the family members grow wary of each other and the spirits that haunt the creepy castle as people start to drop. This is an interesting low budget effort that enabled Coppola to work with a proper crew, giving him vital experience. As a horror movie it remains a taut watch and an interesting footnote in the career of one of Americas greatest filmmakers.
