Plot


Quality


Originality


This fantasy/thriller is one of Wes Cravenís worst films. It is commonplace and doesnít innovate in any of its characteristic aspects.

Linda Blair, even more repulsive than in Exorcist, performs and is sincere. Sadly, her hair doesnít pass the test of time. This is without a doubt the biggest blob of hair I have ever seen and it attracts too much attention. She plays the role of the girl that breaks the mystery that no one believes.

Those who like sorcellery will find Summer of Fear interesting. We are sometimes referred to voodoo and love filters without really entering in any detail.

The filmís rhythmn could have been revised. Most of the story is pretty slow, the ending is crammed in and too grandiose for what preceeds it.
