Time Out says

The tale of a pregnant girl (Duke), widow of a soldier killed in action, who undertakes a long journey to visit the mother-in-law (Murphy) she has never met. She finds herself snowbound in a sinister house on the edge of town inhabited by a subnormal girl (Allen), a shadowy figure (much is made of facial distortion through stained glass), and the mother-in-law, whose strident manner and skill as a nurse speak volumes. Johnson's direction tends to lay on the spooks a bit heavily, while the over-familiar situation (with echoes of Rosemary's Baby) is a further strait-jacket. That said, though, several risky scenes are brought off with some aplomb.
