Picks and Pans Review: Grave Secrets: the Legacy of Hilltop Drive

CBS (Tues., March 3, 9 P.M. ET)


Patty Duke and David (Falcon Crest) Selby play a couple who finally build their dream house, but then all kinds of creepy things start happening. To make a long story short (ah, if only the makers of this film had done the same!), it turns out they're reliving atop an old cemetery.

How do they get away with ripping off the plot of Poltergeist? Well, this movie is based on the real-life experiences of Ben and Jean Williams, a Crosby, Tex., couple who cowrote the 1991 book The Black Hope Horror. The chills and spills are not very gripping, but the subject mailer should attract the things-that-go-bump-in-the-night crowd. I don't know about you, but if it were my house, within 10 minutes of the first ghostly prank I'd be calling the real estate agent from my room at the local Holiday Inn.
