With a great number of shocks, surprises, and twists, "Dead of Night" only becomes more and more strange the longer you watch.

Surreal and atmospheric horror movie with some solid performances and a creepy looking doll. The story has its fair share of crazy twists and turns.

This was Ealing Studios first Post War film and marked a move away from the documentary style realism that had dominated its war-time output. Despite its success, Dead of Night was the last mainstream British Horror movie until the rise of Hammer nearly a decade later. Boasting a solid British cast and many reputable and influential figures of Ealing's Success in the background (including a writing credit for none other than HG Wells) Dead of Night is an eerie and spine tingling treat. Obviously any film from 1945 will lack the blood, gore and horrific images that dominate Horror movies today and some of the acting will seem wooden and quaint but look beyond the very English facade and a terryifying and malavelont world awaits you
