A happily married couple (Marsha Mason and John Beck) find their lives thrown into frightening disruption when a stranger (Anthony Hopkins) appears at their door claiming that their adopted 12-year-old daughter (Susan Swift) contains the reincarnated spirit of his little girl. Although their daughter has been acting a little strange of late, they dismiss Hopkins as a crackpot. Then "things" start happening, and Hopkins keeps reappearing as a menacing figure, which has a deepening influence on the girl and an increasingly terrifying effect on the family. This haunting, psychological horror film was directed by a master of the genre: Robert Wise (THE HAUNTING).
A tiresome 'classic'
I understand that the bar for 'thrilling' was probably a lot lower in the 1970's, however Audrey Rose is more of a mild drama than a thriller or fantasy. Full of 'scary' music and yelling & screaming, this one is strictly for students of cinema. Give it a miss
