The Hearse (1980)
As you’d expect (or hope) there’s a hearse in the story, but it only appears at certain times. In between those times the film throws medium levels of horror, ghostly atmospherics and even some Halloween-esque stalking scenes into a regular drama about a single woman in a new town.
It has a few neat ideas, most of which are borrowed from more memorable films, the acting is okay, and the creepy moments are occasionally successful, but the slow pace will have a lot of folks turning off.
