Are you one of the legion? New York is the backdrop to many a satanic story but none, save Rosemary’s Baby, are as creepy as The Sentinel. Alison Parker is a model who, deciding to spend some time alone before making a commitment to her sketchy boyfriend, discovers that the troubling issues of her past are coming to haunt her. Long story short (filled with demonic delusions), her suicidal past has made her the next perfect candidate to guard the gateway to hell. Based on the chilling novel by Jeffrey Konvitz, this film shows how transparent the boundaries between hell and the living is…in Brooklyn!

With its incredible cast featuring Burgess Meredith, Chris Sarandon, and even Ava Gardner, you may miss our dear Jeff Goldblum in The Sentinel but he’s there in the photo shoot gone wrong and party scenes!
