Ealing will for ever be associated with its celebrated comedies, but this chilling quintet deserves to be considered among the studio's finest achievements.

Portmanteau horror movies are often hit-and-miss affairs, but this compendium from Ealing Studios employs some rigorous quality control.

Producer Michael Balcon turned each individual episode over to a different director and, told via flashback, they're equally good.

A dead scary horror movie that skimps on the blood but not the goose bumps,

The form was to be revived on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1960s. But Dead of Night is the best.

Absolutely one of the spookiest films ever made.

The anthology film's clever structure allows even the weakest of the sketches to be effective, because there is less of a need to balance the impact of each story.

First-rate British chiller

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Its scares are grounded in our suspicion that not every ghost is a trick of the light and not every goosebump can be explained by a drop in temperature...

Nell Minow
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

One of the creepiest movies of all time and a great way to compare different directing styles.

Cavalcanti's contribution might be the finest single episode to appear in any horror anthology film.

Though quite obviously possessing both structure and content that has been influential to its genre, there's something about [it]that keeps it from rising very far above its legions of imitators
