  1. Rocco's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    It's a shame that by the end the whole enterprise doesn't really amount to much as it has lots of things going for it. Reed, Davis, and Black are all sensational, as is the central mystery that deftly avoids simple scares or obvious explanations. It just doesn't give the viewer even a modicum of information with which to make sense of the story, leaving the impression that this slow-burn was more of a drag.

  2. Renton47's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    This film is pretty bonkers - the father tries to kill his son before any of the foreboding really begins. It won't be the first time he tries and he is supposed to be the good parent in the film! It is odd and fun, but as others have said overlong and slow. Consider it only has 4 characters in the bulk of the film, and some underutilised eccentrics at the start. More than a few similarities with The Shining.

  3. samuele90's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    Una bella vacanza rilassante, specialmente per il regazzino.

  4. Pymo's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    Never feed the old lady!

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    "> Primé en 1976 au festival fantastique de Paris, ce film lent, solide et envoûtant, offre, sur le thème des demeures hantées, un spectacle convaincant, loin des traditionnels et pesants effets de choc attendus... www.cinefiches.com

    Location horrifique d'été.

  9. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    very great psychological thriller, but the kid was so dumb & annoying.

  10. Keith Fletcher's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    Scary, if slow buildup. Oliver Reed's best acting.

  11. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    Una película a revalorar. "Burnt offerings" bebe de la vieja obsesión sobre casas que envarga a la locura a cualquier huesped de paso. Todavía "The shining" no se había realizado, pero este filme de Curtis promueve el terror psicológico de manera efectiva. No hay apariciones, pero si viejos fantasmas (ese fascinante chofer/sepulturero), presencias que te engullen. Nunca se sabe a ciencia cierta qué ocurre en esa casa

  12. Greg's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    Overly long, but THE SHINING stole a LOT from this film!

  13. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    A really well crafted semi-gothic horror film, with exceptional performances from the whole cast. The seeking of the idyllic family life, the big house, the abundance, the wealth, the glee and the serenity that turns to be an illusion. And a scary one too. (B: Marion, let's go back. M: To what? B: To what we had. M: We had nothing.)

  14. Hazel Cills's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    "House of The Devil" definitely stole a certain vibe from this movie. Babysitting old women who never leave their rooms is something I will NEVER DO. This film is creepy, simply because there is so much left unsaid. And that's what makes a good scary movie!

  15. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Burnt Offerings

    An excellent cast is wasted in this painfully slow haunted house story. The dull and talky bulk of the movie weighs down a handful of effective scenes and colorful characters that mainly work because of the strong performances - particularly Oliver Reed. The story is boring and predictable and just way too long. But it is almost worth watching for the ridiculous ending.
