What's on Tonight: VACATION OF TERROR I & II (1988-1990) on SHUDDER, TUBI, ROKU and YOUTUBE

Vacaciones de terror (English: 'Vacation of Terror') is a 1989 cult Mexican supernatural horror film starring Julio Alemán, Pedro Fernández and Gabriela Hassel. It was directed by Rene Cardona III and the film's main plot follows a wealthy family during a weekend trip to a vacation house only to be haunted by the spirit of an evil witch who was executed there many years ago.

Part I IMDb SYNOPSIS: An evil witch gets burned at the stake, but not before vowing to return and get her revenge. A hundred years later a family arrived to spend their vacation at a summer home located in the same immediate countryside area where the witch was killed. Trouble ensues when little girl daughter Gaby finds an ugly doll that's possessed by the lethal spirit of the malevolent witch.

The film became a cult classic in Mexican horror film history mainly for its lead actor Pedro Fernandez, its villain the haunted doll and for being a pioneer in the genres of supernatural horror and possessions of inanimate objects. A remake is planned. It was succeeded by a sequel: Vacation of Terror 2. The diabolical doll and Pedro return in this sequel directed by Pedro Galindo III. Part II takes place on Halloween, Part I does not.

Part II IMDb SYNOPSIS: Julio is invited to a birthday party for a little girl on Halloween in a closed movie studio. At the party, he notices she has a doll that resembles the one that his little sister had.
