|With James Farentino, Joan Hackett, Claudette Nevins, Ann Dusenberry, Harrison Ford, Eugene Roche, Diana Scarwid, P. J. Soles, Dinah Manoff.
|A condensed, harmless TV horror riff on William Friedkin's The Exorcist.
This takes place at the all girls Helen Page School in Salem, Massachussetts, run by a headmistress with a dark secret (played by the wonderful Hackett).
Things are mysteriously being set on fire (including some of the students!) when an uninvited priest-turned-exorcist (Farentino) appears with a mission.
A good cast, including P.J. Soles, Dinah Manoff, and Ann Dusenberry in minor roles, a terrific setting, and a brisk showdown/conclusion...make this one worth seeing.
Filmed at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.
