I love Patty Duke, she's an excellent actress!! This story is better in book form but still a decent movie. The book is called Black Hope Horror and it's a true story.

Good true story, made-for-TV ghost movie!

"The best part of Grave Secrets aside from the fact that it was based on a true story is Patty Duke who always gives us wonderful performances. This is also called The Legacy of Hilltop Drive. You can probably find more information on the internet about what happened to Ben and Jean Williams and the rest of their family. The home they moved into was built on an old cemetary called The Black Hope and supposedly the deceased began to haunt the residents in the neighborhood in strange ways. Toilets would flush on their own, the garage door opened and closed by itself, it was chilly a lot of the time, there were unexplained shadows on the wall, etc. The Williams tried to take legal action againgst the developers but with no luck. They eventually moved out after a family tragedy. If you enjoy the occasional TV-movie, this is a good one. Don't expect fancy special effects or high production values like you would in big Hollywood films. But this is still a good movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon. Some other ghost movies you may enjoy with better budgets are Burnt Offerings, The Changeling or The Others with Nicole Kidman."

"I know Patty Duke was in lots of films between The Patty Duke Show and this movie, most notably as Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker, but I couldn't resist going back in time. Grave Secrets is based on a true event where the spirits of those buried come to haunt the houses on Hilltop Drive whose owners don't realize there is a cemetery under their houses. Patty plays a wife and mother who takes charge of her granddaughter while her daughter is away. right after moving in, Patty hears the sound of a toilet flushing, only there is no one there to flush it. Later, her granddaughter sees shadows on the wall no one else sees. As in any haunted-house movie, things build up until the climax and the secret of Hilltop Drive is revealed. While other movies were better, such as The Haunting and The Legend of Hell House, it is neverthless unnerving in part because this one is real, and in part because of the acting and special effects. I have it on a video along with Ghost Story, Poltergeist, The Haunted (not The Haunting, but based on fact) and The Uninvited (also based on fact). You can see I like haunted-house movies, and Grave Secrets is a satisfying end to the tape. Not top quality, but still good.
