Review: Night of the Demon

Jacques Tourneur, UK, 1958

: Night of the DemonGood old-fashioned black-and-white B-horror movie is long on atmosphere and short on plot. Dana Andrews plays a parapsychologist so dead set against believing in the rune-cast curse that you know from the start he’s either going to get his comeuppance or die trying. The demon, a cross between Godzilla and a large fire-breathing dog, makes a couple of effective appearances, but they should have stuck with the long shot. Night of the Demon is entertaining enough, but one of those films I know I’ll have trouble remembering whether I’ve seen it or not two years from now.  [**1/2 out of 5]
