While the original script, something called "The Devil's Doorway," showed promise, various re-writes and compromises have resulted in a movie which makes so little sense that it's best viewed as an "in-flight" movie. One of those things you halfway watch while doing something else.
The movie begins with a basic implausibility. Interior decorator Katherine Ross is lured from L.A. to England by a lucrative but mysterious job offer. She and boyfriend Sam Elliott decide to fly over a few days early to see some of the English countryside. They're involved in a minor motor accident on a rustic lane and are taken by the other driver to his nearby home to await repair of their vehicle. What do you know, this home just happens to be the very place where Katherine Ross was intended to go all along!
Therein follows some murky activities involving other guests at the home who seem to be part of a Black Magic cult. Gruesome death follows gruesome death culminating in an ending which doesn't really resolve questions raised by the preceding plot.
On the plus side, the two leads are attractive sorts and they're surrounded by a competent British cast which gives a better effort than circumstances warrant. What's more, the large countryhouse in which the action occurs provides just the right atmosphere.
One curious note. While Katherine Ross is warmly dressed throughout with turtleneck sweaters and long skirts, co-star Sam Elliott gets to strip for a rather-extended shower scene. As he crosses the bathroom toward the shower, the camera lingers on the back of his naked body, even though this part of the scene serves no plot purpose whatsoever.
Fortunately Elliott, at about age 33, has the necessary buns-by-Michelangelo to make this moment more of a highlight than an embarrassment.

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 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!
