The Hearse (1980)
97 min.
Directed by George Bowers.
With Trish Van Devere, Joseph Cotton, David Gautreaux, Donald Hotton, Med Flory, Perry Lang.
Mildly successful ghost film starring Trish Van Devere (who appeared in the superior The Changeling) the same year.

She plays a woman who moves into a house left behind by her dead aunt.

Soon she's plagued by moving objects, visions of a dead woman, and a menacing black hearse. It all builds up to an unconvicing ending.

Still, recommended for a couple of creepy moments and a likeable performance by the lead, as well as the always watchable Cotton.

Atmospheric at best, if not always consistently potent throughout.
