Finally available in Blu-ray.

Sadly this film was not well received when it first came out back in the glorious 70's.

Cristina Raines stars as a young fashion model who moves into a wonderful Brooklyn apartment and soon finds bizarre things happening.

Her boyfriend starts an investigation. She, on the other hand talks to the lady who rented her the apartment. it's really a weird thing when she tells her how much she loves all of the people living there and then is told that she is the only tenet except for a blind priest on the top floor.

Chris Sarandon is the boyfriend who soon finds out that the apartment may be a gateway to Hell itself. There are some really genuine scares in here as well as some classic and disturbing make up from Dick Smith.

This film also boasts one of the most star studded casts in recent memory including Ava Gardner, Martin Balsam, Burgess Meredith, Eli Wallach, Christopher Walken, John Carradine, Arthur Kennedy, Sylvia Myles (in a role you'll never forget), Deborah Raffin, and Beverly D'Angelo (in another role you'll never forget).

I won't give anything away here, but you really need to see this great slice of 70's horror. The quality is magnificent from Shout, and it is easily one of the best releases of the year.
