Night of the Demon

Saturday, October 18, 2008

This is not that shitty 80's movie where Linnea Quigley somehow shoves a tube of lipstick through her titty. This is a black and white horror movie from the great Jacques Tourneur, similar to his I Walked With a Zombie or Leopard Man. I'm not the biggest fan of old, low budget horror movies, but there was something about this guy's style that I respond to... it lacks a lot of the cheesey and asanine qualities I associate with some of the crappier old ones. Except for one unfortunate moment where the main character is attacked by a monster that looks exactly like a stuffed animal, the movie strikes a serious but fun tone, and it's got an intriguing plot and some awesome b&w cinematography.
