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

Night Of The Demon packs a powerful punch despite featuring no gore or, demon excepted, much in the way of special effects.
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.
As in any Tourneur horror film there are some unforgettably nightmarish sequences.
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.
