Lange, Paul Burke, John Carradine
Starting slow but eventually working its way up to a suitably disturbing
resolution, Crowhaven Farm is a pleasantly eerie journey
into 17th-century witchhunt territory. Hope Lange and
her husband inherit the titular farm (well, after her cousin -- the rightful
inheritor -- dies in a freak car crash!), and of course things end up
going horribly wrong (if they didn't, we'd be disappointed -- right, kids?).
With a nice backstory of a witch who betrayed her coven by ratting on
them to the local puritan community in return for her own life, along
with the more immediate history of Lange and her husband's troubled and
childless marriage, the story becomes nastier than you might expect and
has a fairly troubling conclusion that leaves Lange and her newborn on
the run from vengeful souls that they fucked with in life. Fans of Thanksgiving
decoration imagery and Satan will not be disappointed.
