In this film, American Professor Dana Andrews investigates a devil-worshipping cult active in England. The cult has apparently been responsible for more than one death in recent months. When Andrews comes too close to the cult for comfort, the devil-worshipping leader slips a cursed parchment into Andrews' research files. This 1958 American release is a re-edit of Tourneur's original 1957 British film. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Intelligent, delicate, and actually frightening."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"A film that survives even its most unsubtle special effects to earn its place as not only one of the great films of British vintage cinema but also a classic supernatural thriller."
‑ , Film4
"Classic with extraordinary atmosphere."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television

‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's a movie that many people remember with affection and respect from their childhoods -- because it scared the crap out of them."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"This was a first-rate classic horror story, whose richness is enhanced because the shock scenes are understated and left mostly to one's imagination."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Night Of The Demon packs a powerful punch despite featuring no gore or, demon excepted, much in the way of special effects."
‑ Clark Collis, Empire Magazine
"One of the most intelligent and thoughtful horror films ever made."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Eerie, low budget horror classic."

‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
