Don't Go to Sleep (1982)

Directed by Richard Lang
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(VHS, Unicorn Video)

A couple moves into a new house with their two young children. Their daughter soon starts seeing her dead sister, killed years earlier in a tragic auto accident. She is convinced to murder the other family members one-by-one in various staged accidents. The last surviving member finally catches on to what is happening and decides to fight back. Pretty good except for the psychology angle, with the young girl ending up in a straight jacket and padded cell. Dennis Weaver and Valerie Harper are quite good as the couple dealing with multiple family tragedies. Oliver Robins plays the boy, a character virtually identical to his role in Poltergeist, made the same year.
