Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 3

Here's a mediocre, big budget, star-studded 1970s horror movie that, shockingly, HASN'T been remade yet. I'm sure that will change eventually.

Audrey Rose is basically one of many post-The Exorcist movies centered on the occult and children, in this case, the supposed re-incarnation of a girl who died as a child in a fire. Her creepy dad (Anthony Hopkins, natch) shows up at a couple's house, convinced their teenage daughter is his dead child re-incarnate. Seances and trances ensue. It's pretty boring, and I remember it mainly because I read the book it was based on, and it had a cover featuring a girl, in flames, dressed the way Courtney Love would dress 20 years later. Audrey Rose: proto Riot Grrrrrl!

Watch the movie at 9:05PM on the MGM Movie Channel HD.
