Only a fraction of the novel, but still quite a film. It's not that the film is so scary, but that the ghost is so alluring. This film has the big boss from Rollerball.

Four successful elderly gentlemen, members of the Chowder Society, share a gruesome, 50-year old secret. When one of Edward Wanderley's twin sons dies in a bizarre accident, the group begins to see a pattern of frightening events developing.

" Loved the movie and the book (Peter Straub). Atmosphere all the way through. The men of the Chowder Society - secret societies are sooo secret and you never ever get the whole truth. The hauling of the car out of the water. Creeeepy girlfriend."

TDcore's Horror Jounral 2019: June (15 movies items)

"Here we have a bona-fide hidden gem, and a curiously underrated film. It has nearly everything one could want from a good old fashioned ghost story (hence the name), and even a few things you wouldn't expect. Despite being so unknown, it's not a low budget film at all, and features a cast of fantastic, well known actors. A foursome of old-Hollywood stars make up the principle cast of old men who share a terrible secret. And Alice Krige, in one of her first roles, stuns with a combination of pure"
