Dominique (1978)

After some debate with the voices in my head, I decided to continue with Horror: Do Not Watch Alone. Tonight’s entry, the 1978 entry Dominique

Plot / The wife of a greedy man comes back to haunt him after he scares her to death in this horror-thriller. He is after her money and must try several times before he finally succeeds. Because she is mentally exhausted from being frightened all the time, she commits suicide, but soon the husband begins experiencing her ghostly presence.

This was an interesting little film. While a bit slow and maybe a tad too long, definitely a creepy element permeated throughout. The plot was common with at least an attempt at a twist ending and the acting and direction were average. Yet, even with the flaws it made for some decent entertainment with my daughters on Scary Movie Night. Will I watch it again? Probably not for a while, but I am definitely not throwing it away.


  1. Ah, I'm also in the midst of the Do Not Watch Alone compilation....
    Dominique is among the more forgettable inclusions. Still, worth seeing at least once.

  2. Good write up. I love these compilations. Always a mixed bag, but it's great when you find something worth keeping around!
