2. Reception

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."
