87 min.
Directed by David Lowell Rich.

Enjoyable TV horror flick produced by Aaron Spelling.

Elizabeth Sayers (Franklin) doesn't accept that her sister Martha committed suicide.

So she decides to investigate at the girl's school, the Salem Academy.

But when other girls begin turning up dead - and are also declared "suicides" - Franklin quickly realizes something is amiss.

Are the suicides simply for real or is there a more sinister force at work?

This good-natured TV entry of satanism and the occult has solid work from leads Franklin and Jackson, and a creepy unblinking ending. It won't keep you up at night with its low key scare factor, but it is worthwhile fun.
