The book the films are based on is also excellent, if you enjoy a good read now and then.
I'm not sure it was from 1973 though. It was really bad. I had pretty high expectations with the Maiden reference and people I thought knew movies recommending it but to put The Shining, The Exorcist and that movie in the same group is just nuts. It's not even a horror movie. It's like an Agatha Christie suspense/mystery/musical.
