Storyline

Michael Rogers is a chauffeur with little money, but big dreams. Foremost of these is building his dream house on the perfect piece of land. Michael gets his chance when his new girlfriend, Ellie, turns out to be an extremely wealthy heiress. The two are wed and are soon living in a modern home on Gipsy's Acre. Their idyllic life shatters around them with a series of bizarre events and threats. Micheal comes under the disapproving eye of both Ellie's greedy family and her interfering best-friend Greta. On top of that, local legend says their property is cursed. What danger lurks for the young newlyweds, and is it a human plot or something supernatural? Written by L. Hamre

Very entertaining
5 August 2002 | by halfcolombianSee all my reviews

I don't agree at all with the poor reviews of this movie. I first saw this movie years ago and it stayed in my mind and finally I had the pleasure of finding it on dvd so I ordered it. It's probably my favourite dvd I have so far. It's a low-budget movie but yet it's a movie with a lot of class. The actors give great performances, above all Hayley Mills, and Bernard Herrmans score is sensational. It's a beautiful production and at times it made me think of "vertigo", and not only because herrman wrote the theme to that movie too. I love this movie! Sure they could make a billion dollar remake of it with a lot of stars but it still wouldn't beat this. It's a piece of art.
