Description
This DVD contains both the original U.K. version and the abridged U.S. version of a film that Martin Scorsese considers one of the scariest movies of all time. "Night of the Demon" (1957) follows a skeptical American psychologist, played by Dana Andrews, as he investigates the mysterious death of a friend in England. When his questioning leads him to a satanic cult led by Niall MacGinnis, the doctor is confronted by a real life battle for his own soul. This disc also contains the rare truncated 82-minute American cut, released as "Curse of the Demon" (1958).

        Comments about this product:

        'Night of the Demon' is a rare bird among 50's horror movies, depending as it does on supernatural horror rather than science run amok. It's even rarer in that it is so VERY well done. Based on a M.R. James classic ghost story 'Casting the Runes', it tells of the investigation launched by professional skeptic Professor Harrington into the devil cult of Julian Karswell. Karswell warns Harrington off, but when it doesn't take, nasty and truly frightening things start to happen to Harrington, whose skepticism gets increasingly frayed though never broken in the face of the occult horrors Karswell unleashes on him. In the end it becomes a battle of wits between scientist and Satanist to see which of them will escape sane and alive.

        THis DVD thankfully contains the British cut pof the film, 'Night of the Demon', as well as the truncated but still decent American cut, 'Curse of the Demon'. The characters are well done, with even the malevolent Karswell made a little sympathetic; the use of the score and camera angles is amazing; and the big effect, the demon itself, looks terrifying. It scared me a s akid when I watched it, anyway!

        Great movie for either Halloween or a dark and stormy night.
