CABLE TV REVIEW - THE HAUNTING OF SEACLIFF INN
A HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW
September 22, 1994
The Haunting of Sea Cliff Inn is a good old-fashioned ghost story. And though there are few unpredictable twists, the two-hour USA telefilm is so scary in a delicious kind of way, and so gorgeously produced, that few viewers looking for this type of romance-novel escapism will be able to resist its charms.
Starring Ally Sheedy and William Moses as a beautiful, thirtysomething couple on the run from successful but high-powered business careers that threw their marriage on the rocks, the story concerns their search for true love during the course of a dangerous affair with a 19th century Victorian inn high above the cliffs near Mendocino.
As the couple begins to renovate the inn into a bed-and-breakfast, Sheedy sees strange visions, they meet a mysterious neighbor (Louise Fletcher), their dog bites the dust, and a beautiful stranger (Lucinda Wiest) takes up residence.
It's not Shakespeare, but the production is so seamlessly good to look at, Sheedy and Moses make such a perfect couple for the '90s and Wiest such a voluptuous interloper, that the hours just glide away.
