Deadly Blessing is a horror movie directed by Wes Craven, released in the USA on August 14, 1981.


In the film, strange murders occur in an Amish community. Three young girls from the city, staying at a nearby farm, are besieged by the unseen perpetrator as well. The mad ringleader of the Amish "Hittites" (Ernest Borgnine) accuses the "incubus" as being responsible.


  • Ernest Borgnine had previously played an Amish character nearly thirty years ago before this film in Violent Saturday.
  • A real spider was dropped into Sharon Stone's mouth; she initially rejected participating in the scene until it was defanged.
  • Susan Buckner would not appear in show business again until becoming a mob member on 1 vs 100 in 2007.
