Invitation to Hell (1984)

An American made for TV horror directed by Wes Craven, starring Joanna Cassidy and Kevin McCarthy.
A scientist moves with his family to a new town when he gets a job at a laboratory. Everyone in town belongs to a country club, but this may be a bad thing.
Alright. It wasn't spectacular, but it was sure better than Feast. The video looked '70s to me, despite the '80s date. The plot took time developing as strange occurrences built up to the climax. There was a really cool set in the portal to hell and economic use of video effects eliminated the need for and actual hell set. The special space-suit was really retro, but served an actual purpose in the plot. Overall, it's an average flick to pass the time. I rate this o.k.
