Dead of Night
(1945) Directed by Alberto Cavalcanti, Robert Hamer, Charles Crichton, and Basil Dearden. Mervyn Johns, Michael Redgrave, Googie Withers. (77 min.) DCP.
Haunted by a recurring nightmare, an architect arrives at a country house with a disturbing sense of déjà vu, inspiring the guests to take turns swapping supernatural tales. This omnibus film’s influence in the genre is far-reaching.
Introduced by NCMA film curator Laura Boyes.
“A dead scary horror movie that skimps on the blood but not the goosebumps . . . Be afraid, be very afraid” (BBC).
