The Legacy (1978)

I just watched Richard Marquand's THE LEGACY (aka The Legacy of Maggie Walsh / De Fordømte) for the second time. The first time was a few years back when I slept my way thru the movie, LOL. Not that it's a bad film mind you I guess I must've been tired. :D

The plot is the old tried (and tired) "couple can't escape from English manor and get sucked into occult dabblings". The story is basic and would've sunk the film to the bottom of the horror movie ocean had it not been for the good cast. The Danish cheapo DVD is presented in terrible fullscreen and the print is scratched but serviceable.


Aussie trailer:


  1. That doesn't sound like a good pre-halloween evening :p

  2. You can say that again. I had to spend the day at some failure of a family birthday party and then came home with a headache and wanted to watch HENRY PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER to get it out of my system but even tho I own THREE copies of the damn film I couldn't even find ONE of them. So I put this on and...

    Hopefully tomorrow's gonna be better. LMAO.

  3. Hahaha.I think that says it all about your collection.

    Yeah. If you check out my blog you can see I had a good movie evening. Gonna be a good one tomorrow to.
