Night Of The Demon

Tuesday 31 October @ 8.15pm | Arc Cinema| $16/13

1957 | CTC | 95 mins| UK | D: Jacques Tourneur

“It’s in the trees! It’s coming!”  This supernatural thriller is full of wonderful one-liners that became iconic in popular culture. Tourneur excelled at suggesting rather than showing, and his skill is never more evident than here. Although exploited as a film in the “horror” genre, it only shows the titular Demon fleetingly (legend has it that Tourneur completed the film without showing the Demon at all, and that it was added later by the producer). Instead, the story is driven by the clash between a sceptical psychologist investigating the paranormal (Dana Andrews) and a celebrated satanist (Niall MacGinnis, loving every moment of his role).  Tourneur characteristically revels in darkness and shadow to keep the audience in a constant state of unresolved tension.
