I liked it
You know a movie is bad when you are actively rooting for the lamp to win…
I thought I dreamt this movie for 20+ years. It has given me a lifelong fear of garbage disposals. All I could remember was a globe shaped, possessed lamp in the house and of course the kids hand getting mangled in the disposal. So if it left that great of an impression on me, I’d say it’s decent. Certainly better than most so-called “Amityville” movies.
Kinda slow but I genuinely liked the characters and thought Patty Duke gave a surprisingly good performance when she easily could’ve phoned it in. Not very scary, but fun, earnest TV movie schlock that’s probably about as good as you think it is.
