Summer of Fear Movie Review

After The Exorcist, Linda Blair tried to make herself into a scream queen and never once succeeded at it. Summer of Fear is just one of her bottom-of-the-barrel horror films (originally a TV movie called Stranger in Our House), concerning a witch who moves into poor Linda's house in the guise of a newly orphaned cousin looking for sanctuary.

Filled with atrocious effects and a threadbare storyline that wouldn't keep an audience watching through commercial #1, about the only memorable part of the film is a brief cameo from Fran Drescher. Then again, this is a Wes Craven movie... what were you expecting?
