Review by Jigsaw
This is an oddity, one of the first all African-American casted movies. As such, it's as Poverty Row as one could imagine. Also, the version widely available seems to be missing a minute or two halfway through the film (which is already short - clocks in at just over an hour). Sound quality, or video quality, for that matter, wasn't up to par for even my standards of the time period, but it was just about as good as I remembered it.

Really, it's just a generic movie, with some okay light-hearted comedic portions provided by one of the characters (who was actually played by a writer of the script) and an almost-threatening atmosphere. It falls short, though, of it's aims, and overall, seems an overly forgettable movie, especially as so many other horror films, some great, came out around the same time. The points I give it are mainly for the setting itself (a house, which, while generic, was used to good effect in the film) and some of the more humorous lines. 5.5/10 (rounded down to 5/10 to fit site's format).
