Product Description

How far would you go to inherit everlasting life? When an American couple (Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott) have a mysterious car accident in the English countryside, the other driver offers to take them to his lavish country estate to make amends. But once there, the suspense deepens when they learn the other houseguests are expecting them! It's not long before the couple's fear turns to terror when the guests (including rock superstar Roger Daltrey) begin dying in unspeakable ways. Now it's clear the true master of the house is a supernatural force that will stop at nothing to find the rightful heirs for an unimaginably horrible legacy.

I remember seeing the preview for this movie in the theaters when i was three years old watching superman and it scared the crap outta me. after seeing it years later it wasnt as scary as i expected but still an interesting chiller.
Katherine Ross and Sam Elliot play an American couple who get in a motorcycle accident in England. they stay at a mansion where 5 other people including katherine ross are in a cult. and one by one they die till only two are left. Acting is good all around.
the part that stands out in my mind when i was a little kid was when the woman fell under the water and was trapped. Then again when i saw it years later it wasnt that scary. Still all in all an interesting movie with a plot twist. oh, and nice title song another side of me by kiki dee!

The Legacy is an average horror film that murders its characters one by one in the most cruel and diabolical way conceivable, until the last survivor remains in order to inherit the so-called Legacy, though one could better describe it as a curse. The film bases its theme on the old idea of selling one's soul to the Devil for worldly gains, and is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians, except in this case there are six characters rather than ten. The film also makes one think of the biblical adage of what good does do a person to gain the whole world if the price is one's soul.

Nevertheless, the film does not work because of the gruesome murders, since the film does not really allow the viewer to develop any emotional attachment to the victims and consequently their fate. However, the film is good entertainment due to the relationship and adventures of its two main characters, played by Katherine Ross and Sam Elliott. I was particularly impressed with the performance of Sam Elliott, who plays a strong character with a sensitive disposition. One could really argue that this is his film, and also the main reason to view it. Unfortunately, the film portrays his motivation at the end of the film as being somewhat out of character, as well as how it transforms the character played by Katherine Ross. Also, it seems somewhat silly to see her character suddenly have these supernatural powers that she never knew she had.

An average horror film that can entertain, but offers nothing particularly unique or special.

Yep, you can say all you want about what this movie is not. However you watch a movie for what it is. The movie is packed with seasoned actors. The story is just as spooky as any scary movie and the plot gets revealed in little doses as the protagonists are slowly eliminated. Even the elimination has a clear reason and serves the end purpose.
This does have a 70's TV movie feel however they made some good TV movies in the 70's. This did not require exotic graphics. And the end was appropriate with enough leeway to start a series.
The person that playas the nurse/cat (Margaret Tyzack) can be seen again as a mysterious person in "Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, V. 7: Nemesis" (1986) ASIN: 6303404855. Just put the number in the search box and press "GO!"

I collect movies made by Sam Elliot. It is always a treat to see him portray a character other than a cowboy. Sam and his real-life wife, Katherine Ross, manage to make a pretty good horror movie for us. As with all movies of this genre, the plot has a few "holes" in it, but over-all, the suspense and decent acting contribute to make an entertaining hour and a half.
