Movie Info

Directed and produced by genre icon Dan Curtis (Dark Shadows, Trilogy of Terror), this trio of terrifying stories from I Am Legend author Richard Matheson features performances by Patrick Macnee, Ed Begley, Jr., and Horst Buchholz. The horror gets underway in "Second Chance," a story about a man (Begley, Jr.) who restores a vintage automobile only to find that this his prized vehicle has the power to transport him back in time. The chills keep on coming when the vampire-fearing mistress of an old mansion (Anjanette Comer) falls prey to a sinister scheme involving her husband (Macnee) and a benevolent family friend (Bucholtz) with a dark secret, and a grieving mother (Joan Hackett) is both terrified and overjoyed to be reunited with her presumed-dead son (Lee. H. Montgomery) in "Bobby."more

Audience Reviews for Dead of Night

An enjoyable late-70s horror anthology, Dead of Night doesn't really hit its stride until the final tale, which is awesome. However, the whole film remains an enjoyable bit of 70s horror based on stories by horror legend Richard Matheson.
