Dead Of Night (1945)

UK horror anthology film that set the benchmark for the later Amicus films to build on. Amazing to think that horror films were all banned in the UK at the time due to the war.The individual stories were directed by Alberto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden and Robert Hamer. The whole feel is that of a reoccuring nightmare but the different stories and linking theme still hold up really well. Essential for horror anthology fans.

Another excellent horror film. I recorded this off of TCM on DVD.

Another winner!

Wow I did pic these at random with there being so much european horror out there. I'm glad you enjoy this too-you might also like another british film of that era though it is more a mystery and character study than horror-The Halfway House (1944) if it ever plays on TCM I don't think it's been released on dvd here but I'd have to check to be sure.
