A haunting vision of reincarnation.
Suddenly Their Lives Were Engulfed By Supernatural Terror!

Born 1959 - Died 1964 - Born 1964

Suppose a stranger told you your daughter was his daughter in another life? Suppose you began to believe him? Suppose it was true?

Audrey Rose is a "thinking man's" horror film, which in a way is unfortunate, since it tended to be ignored amidst the many spell-it-all-out scarefests of the late '70s. Marsha Mason and John Beck play Janice and Bill Templeton, a happily married couple, the parents of well-adjusted preteen Ivy (Susan Swift). Their family security is disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious stranger, Elliot Hoover (Anthony Hopkins). At first mistaken for a potential child molester, Hoover explains that his obsessive interest in young Ivy is actually paternal. It is Hoover's contention that their daughter is the reincarnation of his own child, who died in a horrible accident. This information is dismissed out of hand-and then strange things begin happening. Directed by Robert Wise (who had previously helmed the psychological thriller The Haunting), Audrey Rose was adapted by co-producer Frank de Felitta from his own novel

ough comparisons to The Exorcist were inevitable, Audrey Rose is not a horror film, but a melodrama on the subject of reincarnation. The film received poor reviews, including one from Vincent Canby at the New York Times, who said of it, "The soul of the movie is that of "The Exorcist" instantly recycled."

Release Date: April 1, 1977
