BURNT OFFERINGS (1976)  

Watched it Sunday night at TCM.  I had seen it 45 years ago on a double bill with CARRIE.  I had not realized it was directed by DAN CURTIS whose crap I love.  
This crap I do not love.   TongueOut

Karen Black? Oliver Reed? Bette Davis?

I LOVED it!

I love DAN CURTIS productions, I love KAREN BLACK, I love BETTE DAVIS, I enjoy OLIVER REED.  I do not love nor enjoy BURNT OFFERINGS.  BETTE is wasted! BLACK's performance is all over the place, but not in a good way, and though OLIVER chews on scenery, it doesn't help.  We hear their voices, chatting at the end, but we don't even get a cool creepy denoument with BURGESS MEREDITH and ELAINE STRITCH.  Lots of script problems with that deflated dud.  Thumbdown  

Here's the whole movie in under 3 minutes:

Seriously over-under acted with a pointless jumble of a script and not scary, maybe gross but not intentionally.  ROBERT COBERT provides music (just like he did with Dark Shadows) I kind of like it, but it's rotten.

I dunno. I found it a creepy haunted house movie.

I thought it was underwhelming and a waste of an outstanding cast.

Yeah?  Well that kid goes back into the pool ALONE with the previously murderous poppy catatonic immobile on a lawn chair watching and possessed MOM jumps in the pool to save her son from his 2nd near-drowning in the same pool...  the 2nd time, there was a tsunami in the pool... Lookingup

This movie almost seems like a t.v. movie which isn't to surprising since Dan Curtis made a lot of them.  The creepy chauffer with the evil grin was the most memorable part of the movie.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
