Robert Wagner & Kate Jackson in Death at Love House (1976)

Obscurity factor: 8

Joel and Donna Gregory (Wagner & Jackson) are researching deceased Hollywood star, Lorna Love. In order to more fully immerse themselves in her aura they stay at her former home. While there, Joel becomes obsessed with her almost to the point of madness. In trying to free her husband from the spell of the long dead star Donna uncovers some disturbing facts about her. Can she save her husband?

This made for TV movie was Aaron Spelling's opportunity to dip his toe into the horror/thriller genre. Look for Joan Blondell as Marcella. It was released on DVD in 2003 and is now out of print. Copies can still be found, however. It's also available in full on YouTube, thanks to an upload by SeeOfSound - the entire film is in one installment above.

Obscurity factor: 8 (on DVD & YouTube, known to Wagner & Jackson fans, largely forgotten otherwise)

  1. Oh, Aaron was no stranger to made-for-TV horror...don't forget SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, which also featured Ms. Jackson!

    DEATH AT LOVE HOUSE is absolutely wonderful, despite the weird '70s interpretation of '30s Hollywood. (Marianna Hill's hair, I'm talking to YOU.)
