Abby wasn’t as high-budgeted as The Exorcist, but it was a conspicuous and ‘spook-tacular’ second best. You might remember Abby and the knife scene, the bone chilling church performance or the dramatic night club scene.

Additionally, Abby had a great line up of African-American stars. Including, Bracula star William Marshall, who played her father-in-law and a church Bishop. Austin Stoker, a great actor who played the daring and caring detective.

The most notable actor, was the late great Juanita Moore, who portrayed her mother. So, this Halloween stop what you are doing and grab the remote or mouse and stream these great horrific movies of all time.
