4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done. 24 Nov. 2003
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
To be truely correct: Wes Craven's "Summer of Fear". Actually, "Wes Craven Presents Lois Duncan's Summer of Fear".
18 year old Rachel Bryant is getting used to the fact that her aunt and uncle have died in a car crash. But mostly, her cousin Julia who was at boarding school at the time. It's summer, and Rachel thinks she can deal with her cousin Julia. But there is something funny about Julia....
Rachel finds strange artifacts in her room that she is sharing with Julia such as a picture of herself with red splotches all over it. Wait a minute....Rachel suddenly suffered from hives a few days ago. And Rachel's horse has acted strangely around Julia until it suddenly had to be put down. And there is a strange figure with her horses hair on it....What is going on with Julia?!
I enjoyed "Summer Of Fear" since I first saw it on TV several years ago under the title "Stranger in Our House". It's creepy and some good plot twists help make this a winning horror flick for the ages.

THE MOVIE: 3.5/4
THE PICTURE QUALITY: 7/10 In 1.33:1 full screen. That's probably the original aspect ratio since it's a tv movie. There is a large amounts of specs and grittyness thoughout the movie.
THE AUDIO QUALITY: 9.5/10 You can choose from 5.1 Dolby Digital or 2.0 dolby Stereo. The commentary is in 2.0 Stereo. Great listening!
THE SPECIAL FEATURES: Audio Commentary with director Wes Craven and producer Max Keller, director and cast filmographies and sneak peeks.

4.0 out of 5 stars To be more than honest with you... 15 Jan. 2006
By William - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I really enjoyed this considering it was in the bargain basement (most of them aren't uusually worth picking up). I was forewarned that the front cover-art had nothing realling to do with the film (ie. skeleton). When I looked at the back of the cover and saw some of the scenes from the film with Linda Blair, I vaguely remembered seeing this years ago on TV.

I finally watched the DVD the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's one of those films that you cannot take seriously, but just treat it as a bit of escapism. While the storyline is totally far-fetched, the acting makes up for it. Lee Purcell was great as the cousin who is nothing but a nasty witch.

This 1978 movie turned out to be an enjoyable afternoon's viewing. Worth a look (just don't take it too seriously).

4.0 out of 5 stars Summer of Fear (1978) 26 Jun. 2004
By Clob Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Entertaining telechiller from Wes Craven starring Linda Blair. Blair plays Rachel, whose cousin Julia (Lee Purcell) comes to live with her and her family at the farm, but macabre events begin to happen and Rachel soon suspects that Julia is practicing witchcraft and voodoo. I wasn't expecting much out of this thriller but in my opinion, it worked very well and was surprisingly scary. Blair does a good job as Rachel and we are with her every step of the way, and Purcell is great as Julia. Wes Craven gives the film a slick, hard look and an impressive atmosphere (this was Craven's first 35mm film), and the script by Glenn M. Benest and Max Keller is riveting and suspenseful. Lois Duncan's acclaimed novel gets a nice little fright of a treatment with this little TV gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie 12 Jun. 2014
By Stefan Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film is a thriller. It isn't gory. It isn't sickening. It isn't over-the-top. This is a perfect film, made for TV, that has some great acting and a great teleplay: based on the novel. This is one I watch over and over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made-For-TV Craven!... 31 July 2010
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In SUMMER OF FEAR, Linda Blair (THE EXORCIST 1 and 2, BORN INNOCENT, HELL NIGHT) stars as a squeaky-clean gal who suspects that her cousin (Lee Purcell) might be a witch. Watching this, it's difficult to believe that it was made by the same director who gave us LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! Wes Craven does his best w/ the silly 70s TV medium. As watered down as it is, SOF still manages to be fun. Check it out, just don't expect to be terrified!...
