Halloween Countdown: Day 2 - Sweet, Sweet Rachel
I love, love, love this movie which premiered on this day in 1971 as an ABC Movie of the Week and was a potential pilot. Alas, it was not picked up (the concept was seriously reworked and eventually became The Sixth Sense with hunky Gary Collins) and all we have now is Rachel being, well, sweet. It's a great idea: An amiable parapsycologist and his blind assitant (!) help the distraught Rachel solve her husband's supernatural murder. Lots of atomsphere and some creepy scenes make Sweet, Sweet Rachel a blast from the past!
