Invitation to Hell
"Invitation to Hell" is a 1984 television movie directed by Wes Craven starring Robert Urich, Joanna Cassidy, Susan Lucci.
Matt (Urich) and Patricia (Cassidy) Winslow move with their two children Robbie and Chrissy to the California suburbs because Matt is starting a prestigious new job at Micro DigiTech a local technology company. He joins his college buddy Tom and his family.
It doesn't take long to find out that everyone who's anybody joins the local Steaming Springs Country Club. Matt feels the pressure right away to join and of course his family starts needling him to join because all their friends are members.
Jessica Jones (Lucci) who has the biggest hair you've ever seen in this movie, is the director of the club. She leads the initiation of the members who we see walk into an underground doorway with fog and strange sounds emerging. Of course the people who join are no longer the same - there's something cold and even evil about them.
Patricia and the kids decide to join because Matt won't and all of a sudden he doesn't recognize his family. Will Matt be able to save his family from the evil clutches of Jessica and the club?
