The Haunting of Seacliff Inn is a 1994 made-for-TV mystery film, starring Ally Sheedy and William R. Moses. It was written by Walter Klenhard and Tom Walla and directed by Klenhard. The film was first aired at USA Network on September 22, 1994.
A couple starts to live in strange and scary situations when they move to an old house in a seaside town.
TV Guide gave it two out of four stars, stating: "Although not terribly scary, THE HAUNTING OF SEACLIFF INN unfolds in an effectively moody, slow-paced fashion. Much too chatty, it does offer logical explanations for the so-called "supernatural" events, and also cleverly insinuates the legend of Jeremiah and Olivia into the Enrights' own troubled marital history." Tony Scott from Variety magazine wrote: "Sheedy plays her role with striking confidence, and Moses, who had a longtime run as Perry Mason’s associate Ken Malansky, gives his role a becoming sincerity. Maxine Stuart charmingly plays the former owner of the house, and Fletcher gives the story some surprising substance. The Mendocino house itself is a gem, and production designer Anthony Tremblay tries parlaying it into something frightening. Tech credits are good but the story’s not there. A ghost story’s disappointing if the blood runs thin, not cold."
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently holds 0% of audience score.
