The Hearse (1980)

The Hearse poster

City girl Trish Van Devere moves to the country for the summer vaykay after her marriage ends and the neighbours terrorize her. So far, so relatable. Except the house she lives in belonged to her late aunt who was a practising witch. And the guy she’s now dating … wants a companion for eternal life! There really is a madwoman in the attic here and this guy keeps following her in a hearse. But is she losing her mind? Haunted house meets woman in jeopardy here. The Exorcist has a lot to answer for. Joseph Cotten makes one of his last appearances as the local attorney, Perry Lang is memorable as the kid with a crush and handily there’s a weird priest to get rid of the damn devil.
