Maren Jensen (Martha Schmidt), Sharon Stone (Lana Marcus), Susan Buckner (Vicky Anderson), Jeff East (John Schmidt), Ernest Borgnine (Isaiah Schmidt)

An unremarkable pre-Elm Street Wes Craven horror flick about a monastic Hittite sect in the Pennsylvania countryside and the murderous actions of a succubus who resides within, it's all rather silly and predictable, notable only for an early Sharon Stone performance and the unintentionally hilarious miscasting of Ernest Borgnine as a wild-eyed preacher. A fall from grace for a great actor.
