Soon, strange things begin happening.

Malicious poltergeists haunt a Pennsylvania family. Based on a true story.

This was funny. It wasn't meant to be but it was. What is unusual is that Sally Kirkland, who played Janet, received a Golden Globe nomination for a paranormal TV movie. Actors show up to play Ed and Lorraine Warren.
I liked it a lot.
Pretty good early 90s TV movie about an Ed and Lorraine Warren case.
Pretty solid early 90s scare flick. I liked it all up to the ending, it just felt anti-climatic. I think they should have shown us more of what happened at the end. Otherwise, there were a few good scares and the supernatural element kept you on edge, wondering what would happen next. It was very well-done and would have gotten 5 skulls from me if the ending were a little stronger, but it was still good. It stayed scary all the way until the end. I know a few people on here knocked it for the cheesyness, but in my opinion that's a plus. It shows us the time period it was filmed in, and the fact they were a wholesome religious family shows the context that maybe the spirits chose them because of their virtue rather than just because of a location.
