My favourite film of all time,
This review is from: Night of the Demon (1957) [DVD] (DVD)
I don't normally write these reviews, but I could not let this go without awarding it 5 stars. It's my all time top film and has been for many years. I can recite the words along with the film, have visited Bricket Wood station just because the finale was filmed there. I could go on and on - but I won't.
If you have never watched this film before, you are in for a wonderful atmospheric horror movie that oozes atmosphere. If you have seen it - you'll know just how brilliant it is!

Yes it's a brilliant film that weaves terror, psychology, mystery, the occult, horror and even a little humour. It's one of the best supernatural films ever.

...but where does imagination end and reality begin...what is this twilight, this half-world of the mind that you profess to know so much about...how can we differentiate between the powers of darkness and the powers of the mind!?

Whose mind? Are we talking more than 1 mind?. Collective minds?, or just the individual's mind?, isolated and alone....is that possible? How can you banish every mind in the world from your own? Do you Know what I'm on about? Proabably not.... :-)

Perhaps i should have put that quote from the film in inverted commas....you could perhaps then take the semantic ontological existential arguement up with Julian Karswell.

Blimey, Someone's alive and kicking! Which Quote - by the way, and who is Julain Karswell? I'm not hot on theories of existentialism, but, forgive my shallowness in the matter so far, Which Quote are we talking about?

My comment was a quote directly from the film under which we are commenting. Julian Karswell is the character that spoke said quote. If you comment within the context of a film review of a particular title, one often assumes people have actually watched the film and may have a sense of moderate humour.
