Critic Reviews for Night of the Eagle (Burn, Witch, Burn! )
Sidney Hayers shoots the whole thing with an almost Wellesian flourish, and the script (by Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson) is structured with incredible tightness.
The majority of Sidney Hayers' career would be spent as a journeyman director for American television -- his countless credits include Galactica 1980 and Acapulco H.E.A.T. -- but he provides the right measure of sustained menace for this impressive film.
An odd, stylish, and completely absorbing witchcraft-in-the-suburbs oddity that puts hexes into the hands of academics and university wives.
For protection, American threater-goers were given a special pack of salt and words to an ancient incantation during the showing of this oddball, scary tale.
Audience Reviews for Night of the Eagle (Burn, Witch, Burn! )
An admirable rendition of Fritz Leiber's 1943 novel, Conjure Wife. Tangibly atmospheric and delightfully spooky.
an underseen 60s thriller from britain with terrific atmosphere and intelligent script. like 'night of the demon,' which the title is apparently meant to recall, the film involves a skeptical scientist's confrontation with supernatural powers... in this case, in the shape of his own wife. great use of minimal special effects in the rampaging eagle scene
