4.0 out of 5 stars Redgrave's performance is a knockout!, 10 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Of Night [DVD] (DVD)
"Dead of Night" is a classic 1940's supernatural thriller that has managed to retain most of its chills in spite of the passing years. An architect is invited to spend the weekend at the country home of a prospective client. When he arrives he realizes he has repeatedly dreamt of this visit and the encounter with the other house guests. He also is aware that there is something unpleasant associated with the visit. A well-known psychiatrist scoffs at his premonition, but the other guests offer their support by recounting their own experiences with the occult.

The resulting stories are a mixed bag. Some are slight, others are a bit silly. But whatever shortcomings the early stories possess are more than atoned for by the concluding tale, related by the psychiatrist himself, in which Michael Redgrave plays a ventriloquist whose dummy has a mind of its own. It is a genuinely frightening vignette, and Redgrave is superb as a man tormented either by the supernatural or his own madness. It is a fitting climax to a well-made, eerie film.
