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!
By rights, "The Legacy" should be a far more interesting movie than it actually is, especially since it has all the trappings of great atmosphere and tension. But instead, it feels half-finished and strangely limp for long stretches of its running time -- despite the best efforts of Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott, the intermittent music and soggy pacing make it feel more dull than devilishly creepy. Seriously, Faustian pacts have never sounded so tedious.
A young American couple, Maggie (Ross) and Pete (Elliott) are touring the English countryside when their motorcycle wipes out, and they are rescued by the mysterious Jason Mountolive, who takes them to his luxurious manorhouse. Five of his friends soon come to the place as well, each bearing a strange crested ring -- including a prostitute, a rock star, a destroyer of nations -- all of them powerful and wealthy, allegedly there to bury Jason. Also, there's a creepy nurse who can shapeshift into a cat.
Oh yes, Jason has become a withered, deformed old man on life support, despite having been middle-aged and very normal-looing that afternoon. And when Maggie is brought to see him, he jams a ring on her finger that she is unable to remove.
And THEN, strange things start happening -- the American couple find themselves literally unable to escape the manorhouse, even when they get horses and run to the nearest village. Nobody will answer their questions about Jason or why they are being kept here. The guests are suddenly murdered in bizarre and magical ways.Read more ›
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!"

A classic horror movie. Scary to the edge of your seat. The beginning of the horror genre. Excellent seller.Published on Dec 5 2013 by Maria E. Jutasi
