    Cannot remember if this was a film or not. I can recall some drama on TV possibly in the 1980's which featured a farmhouse where the owners are carrying out some building work. In the process of knocking down a wall they find a very old cauldron. They are then, I believe, cursed by it.



    For some reason I am thinking it might have been part of a children's TV drama program about Eastern European folk tales, although quite possibly it has nothing what-so-ever to do with this series.

    Sounds like the Baby episode of Nigel Kneale's Beasts TV series from 1976 to me.

    that's exactly what i thought at first,but wasn't it a mummified animal that was found? another possibility is 'the witches bottles' from the 'shadows' series but i doubt it!

    Yep, but the animal was in an earthenware jar(cauldron?).

    I probably got the cauldron detail wrong, and what you have described seems to fit.
