In the seaside town where her author father rented a secluded home, precocious 13-year-old Rynn Jacobs (Jodie Foster) largely kept to herself. Thing is, it's been months, if not years, since the elder Jacobs was last seen. When the family's nosy landlady (Alexis Smith) and her degenerate son (Martin Sheen) begin to pry, they'll discover the truth... to their everlasting sorrow. Haunting horror-suspense classic co-stars Scott Jacoby, Mort Shuman. 92 min.
