I remember seeing a movie about 30 or so years ago that was about a couple who I believe had just moved into a house that had either aliens or little gremlin like men of some sort in it. There was also a fireplace in the house that was sealed off with bricks. I recall at some point in the film, the woman opened the ash door on the side of the fireplace and was attacked by one of the creatures.

It's been 30+ years since I've seen the movie so my memory of it is vague, at best. If anyone remembers seeing this movie and remembers the title I'd like to try and find it. Let me know if you have any info!

Gee, I'm trying to recall such a movie but am having a hard time. Was this a movie you saw in a theater, or a TV movie?

I saw the movie on TV back around 1975 but it may have been a theatrical film first. I was only around 10 or 11 years old and the movie scared the by-golly out of me.

Aha!!!! The movie was "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" made in 1973 for TV.

Here's the plot summary!

A neurotic housewife named Sally and her business exec husband move into Sally's family house, a spooky two story Victorian mansion. When Sally starts the redecorating along with her pompous decorator she comes across a locked room in the house. After arguing with the handyman who insists she should leave the room locked, she finally gets the key. But once she opens her father's old study and has the bricks from the fireplace removed, strange things begin to happen. Sally begins to see small creatures everywhere, but no one will believe her. Her husband dismisses her as neurotic and her friend thinks Sally may be loosing her mind. But things take a deadly serious turn when the decorator trips at the top of the stairs and falls to his death. Sally sees a rope lying across the place where he tripped, but when she picks it up to take it, a horrifying little creature pulls it from her grasp. Is she crazy? Or has Sally released demons in the house, demons her father summoned?

I have seen that movie for sale everywhere but I don't think I have ever watched it. I guess I'll have to go check it out.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



I went to The Internet Movie Database and used the search function in the upper left corner! Used the drop down menu to select "plots", then typed in the word FIREPLACE (since that was the image I kept remembering), then clicked the "gp" button!

Is there a scene in that movie where someone is in a bed, and they're afraid to put their feet on the floor because the little creatures will get them? I remember the bricks, the bed and the fact there were creatures involved . . .
