The shockingly brutal murder of a little girl in a church where she was just about to receive her first Communion sets a strong tone for terror in this disturbing horror film. The prime suspect in the death of Karen Spages (Brooke Shields) is her sister, Alice (Paula Sheppard), who happily tormented Karen by donning a mask and a raincoat to scare her. Comforting the grieving mother, Catherine Spages (Linda G. Miller), is her sister, Annie (Jane Lowry); local priest Father Tom (Rudolph Willrich); and Catherine's estranged husband, Dominick (Niles McMaster). Other characters include Father Tom's quirky housekeeper, Mrs. Tredoni (Mildred Clinton); a pair of detectives (Tom Signorelli, Michael Hardstark); and Catherine Spages' obese, cat-loving landlord (Alphonso De Noble). While the police investigation and all visual clues quickly point to Alice, director Alfred Sole manages to cast doubt on the killer's identity while the masked madman strikes several more times. About two-thirds of the way through the movie, Sole allows the viewer to see the killer. However, he smartly keeps his characters in the dark setting up a tense finale which culminates in yet another bloody slaying on holy ground before the lunatic is finally stopped. ~ Patrick Legare

think, a little girl Karen is receving communion and her older sister Alice is very jealous. then Karen is brutally murdered. and the prime suspect is Alice. this has to be one of the best slasher films i've ever seen!!!! it has suspense, some blood and jumpy parts!!! the mask is one of best effects of the movie because it has this realness to it and it is sooo freaky!!! but i give this movie a thumbs up!!

Made in the 1970's but set in the early 1960's, this mystery thriller delivers on several levels. The time is the Kennedy years and this allows for the exploitation of all things Catholic, thus giving the film an opportunity for religious symbolism and oppression. It certainly works as a terrific little horror movie in the slasher genre. Humorous and grotesque characters fill out the roster for this very entertaining and well paced work.

It's an old 70's horror movie but still holds up to what's out today.In fact better than some of the mess that's out today. I recommend if you have nothing to do on a Saturday afternoon just sit back and watch this movie you'll enjoy it, if your a fan of horror.If not at least you'll get a good nap.
