Sex, death, madness, and the irrational burst through the polite English surface of this superb film.,

This review is from: Dead Of Night [DVD] (DVD)
From an era when sheer cinematic skill rather than so-called special effects could create a chilling atmosphere and a sense of the macabre, Dead of Night is one of my favourite films. The golfing episode is, I think, under-rated. The wintry and almost deserted golf club provides a truly eerie setting. The episode also provides the film's most surreal image: that of Naunton Wayne appearing in full golfing gear among the wedding party. That touch of incongruity is truly Magrittian.
