Unforgettable
17 April 2001 | by MValentine93See all my reviews

I first saw Satan's School for Girls when it first aired back in 73 and haven't forgotten about it 28 years later. I forgot the name but not the movie. I've told many people about the movie over the years saying it was one of my favorite horror movies. I liked the setting, actors and plot. It's a great combination of elements. There are not a lot of movies that have stayed in my heart as long as long as this one without having seen the movie in over two decades. I just recently discovered Kate Jackson was in Dark Shadows and I checked her credits and that is how I found the name of the movie I have cherished all these years was Satan's School for Girls. I had thought Kate Jackson was in this movie but it was hard to be sure since I was just a child when I saw it. I can't wait to rent or buy Satan's School for Girls now that I know the name. I'm proud to be a Kate Jackson fan from before her Angel days with this movie.
