This one is more of an interesting curiosity than actually any sort of a good movie. It's kinda(but not exactly) a CARRIE rip-off starring Carrie's mom(Piper Laurie) as a lady in the 1950's who runs a drive-in theater that shows ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT WOMAN a lot. Oh and she also may, or may not, have telekinetic abilities that she uses to murder gangsters from her past who snuffed out her boyfriend back in the 30's. This part wasn't exactly clear, as many things are in this film, because it also may be her creepy mute big-eyed daughter doing all the killings or maybe it's just an old gangster ghost running amuck. It all gets totally insane by the end so that's something. There's also a couple of scenes with Ruby's daughter which would put this in the EXORCIST-rip-off category as well.
I caught this at a midnight screening recently and it was tough making it to the end without snoozing but maybe it works better for folks who are more into the whole supernatural creepy thing. I will say this movie works well in creating a very spooky atmosphere if nothing else.
