Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Susan Swift plays the dual role of Loreen and Ann in The Coming (aka Burned at the Stake). The story takes place in modern-day Salem, Massachusetts. Demons who've been seeking revenge since the witch trials of 1692 have reemerged in the quiet New England community. The ghost of a sorceress insinuates herself into the mind and body of her look-alike descendant. Albert Salmi and Guy Stockwell co-star. Its theatrical release scattered and limited, The Coming attained its biggest audience when it premiered in an 80-minute time slot as a CBS Late Night Movie in 1988.
