    I Also Recommend:

    Demon Express

    From the outset of "Night of the Demon," when the uncle is racing his car at breakneck speed down a dark, tree-lined street in the woods, his shifting headlights illuminating the tunnel of overarching leaves, you feel you're in for a thrill ride of a film. And you will not be disappointed.<BR/><BR/>The director, Jacques Tourneur, has crafted a classic tale of the supernatural. He uses the full complement of noir ingredients--dusky, shadowy streets and drastic camera angles--to convey a tone of eerie dread. <BR/><BR/>The rational mind of Dana Andrews's Dr. Holden tackles the evil supernatural juggernaut conjured by Professor Karswell--and guess who wins? Who does win? It's never really clear whether Professor Karswell, the ringleader of the devil cult, is killed by the demon or by a train that runs him over. In the end, was Karswell actually killed by his overactive imagination that panicked him into running into the path of the onrushing locomotive? The ambiguity of the ending is artistically satisfying.<BR/><BR/>One of my favorite scenes is an obscure one of a dim-lit road shot from above, with a cat skulking along a building's first-story ledge as Dr. Holden's car careers arond the corner below it. The scene reminds me of that famous set piece in "The Third Man," wherein a kitten commences to wash its face at the feet of Harry Lime, who appears in the film for the first time, as he stands in the nocturnal shadows in a doorway overlooking the street. <BR/><BR/>"Demon" is a must-see for horror buffs, and for anyone who enjoys outstanding films, for that matter.<BR/><BR/>--Bryan Cassiday, author of "Fete of Death"

    Atmospheric and Genuinely Creepy Movie!

    Curse of the Demon with Dana Andrews is one of the very few "Demonic" movies that I really enjoyed. I saw it many years ago and never forgot it. In this treasure, there's no silly rubes wearing robes. No gratuitous buckets of blood and absolutely no cliche' plots. It's an original. There's absolutely wonderful use of shadows, creepy music, good sound effects, and some hazy images. Dana Andrews is very good as the scientist with the sometimes arrogant, "show me" attitude about demons, spooks, etc. He travels to England to expose the fakers. Niall MacGinnis is wonderful as the bad guy in the pocket of you-know-who. I kinda liked the guy, even though he is evil. And a rarity for it's time, there's a female who is smart, attractive, and adds to the scariness too. She actually helps the good guys with her common sense. She doesn't stupidly place herself in danger then breaks a heel while trying to flee. I agree with one reviewer that showing the Demon in the beginning was the one weak point in this otherwise terrific movie. I suggest that you wait for a rainy day and break out the popcorn. It's great fun!

    Great!

    I have been watching this movie since I was little. The only problem is the stupid-looking monster for about 30 seconds. If you can ignore that, its a great old movie.

    Visit Stonehenge....see the symbols yourself

    'Curse of the Demon' is another example of great horror film making. Terrific acting by Dana Andrews, and moody, mysterious cinematography send the chills down the spine as Dana Andres struggles to return a parchment containing Runic Symbols to the demon-making professor.A hideous demon lies in waiting to kill the psychologist(Andrews)if the parchment is not returned by 10P.M.
