Question: When I was young, I remember watching a scary movie — I think it was made for TV — about a teenager who comes to live with her cousin's relatives on a ranch. She turns out to be a witch and causes trouble in school and with the family and ranch horses react violently to her presence. Do you have any information you could give me about this movie — I cannot remember the name of it for the life of me! — Kristy

Ausiello: This sounds to me like the made-for-TV thriller Summer of Fear (1978) — aka Stranger in Our House — directed by Wes Craven and starring The Exorcist's Linda Blair as the bad cousin. Unlike many television movies of the 1970s, it's available on DVD from Lionsgate/20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
