Classic Movie.

I first watched this movie on a old black and white television, that was some considerable time ago. I, unlike most of the people who I know, who think that it’s okay, but nothing to write home about. I think it’s a cracker, okay it could do without the image of the demon itself, which in some way makes it strangely odd. I wonder what it would have looked like, if, as the Director wanted it to seen, so that the Demon itself is envisaged by the viewer! Sadly the Producer, got his way. Even the star didn’t want the Demon to be seen! But putting that aside, even with the image of the Demon, it’s a pure piece of escapism. This release is certainly a much better the previous version, different versions, good extras. Watch one version, then the others, see how the censors changed the pace of the film. Before buying this release, I saw it recently on the television, I didn’t know that, when I was watching the movie, I was seeing the complete uncut version. When I found out that Powerhouse Films had produced and released this excellent edition, I’m so glad that I didn’t purchase the basic edition. I only found out about this release, when I was purely surfing the web. Get it while you can, get your mates round or that special someone and enjoy it. Highly recommended.

Night Of The Demon

Waited a long time for this movie to be available on Blu-ray, as it’s only been available on DVD. So thank you Powerhouse Films for doing such an excellent job on this release and thank you Zavvi for stocking the movie on Blu-ray. This is a classic piece of entertainment and anyone who has read any of M.R. James novels including the one on which this film is based should go ahead and treat themselves whilst it’s still available. You get two different time versions, in all you get four versions, two U.S.A. and two U.K. Comprising two 82 minute cuts and two 96 minute cuts. In short, just get it and enjoy the movie.

Night Of The Demon

At long last, this marvellous film is available on Blu-ray, it’s a shame that it’s not available on 4K UHD Blu-ray! As for some time it’s only been on DVD, so well done Powerhouse Films for making it a reality and well done Zavvi for stocking it! For anyone interested in M.R. James classic ghost stories, I think that it’s fair to say that you will enjoy watching this movie. To think at the time it was made, the censors objected to some of the contents, if you watch the documentary, which is on this release, you will see for yourself, how strict they were and odd it seems to our standards today! I have to admit, I didn’t know that there were two versions. Get your friends round and enjoy it I’ve seen this movie on many occasions, and like the director and it’s star Dana Andrews, I think that the Demon it’s self, should not have been seen, but these are what ifs, thinking this doesn’t detract from liking and enjoying this movie, especially as you get four versions! Two of 82 and 96 minutes long, the U.S.A. release is also included, in short, just get it while you can.
