"Scared Stiff" is an 80s horror film that tells the story of Kate, a single mom rock star recovering from a nervous breakdown, and her psychiatrist turned lover, David. The couple moves into an old Charleston mansion that turns out to be haunted. Strange occurrences begin to torment Kate, including the discovery of a hidden attic and the diary of a murderous slave trader who once owned the house. As Kate experiences apparitions and hears a piano playing by itself, her sanity is questioned, putting a strain on her relationship with David. The film has been praised for its 80s charm but criticized for its slow pacing. It features practical effects, psychological weirdness, and ungodly creatures, building up momentum but ending with a disappointing final scene.
