Today’s horror scene that I love comes from the 1957 British film, Night of the Demon.
This is one of those films that deserves to be better known than it actually is. Directed by Jacques Tourneur, this is a moody and intelligent horror film, one that’s full of atmosphere and features a surprisingly effective demon. Reportedly, Tourneur didn’t want to show the actual demon in the film but he was overruled by the film’s producers. Typically, I usually side with the directors whenever it comes to stories of behind-the-scenes conflict but, in this case, I think the film actually works better with the demon as an actual physical presence.
