Crowhaven Farm is a contrived creepy-crawly originally telecast on The ABC Movie of the Week. Hope Lange is probably the last person you'd expect to see in the middle of a witchcraft/reincarnation plot, but there she is, in the company of Paul Burke, Lloyd Bochner and (who else?) John Carradine. Lange and Bochner have the largest roles, playing a bickering couple who inherit a farm and adopt a child (Cindy Eilbacher). Maybe they should have checked the adoption papers a little more carefully; the thing of it is, their new kid seems to be possessed with the soul of a centuries-old witch. Some effective scary setpieces in John McGreevrey's script occasionally lift Crowhaven Farm out of the ordinary.
