Atmospheric and underplayed in the tradition of Val Lewton.
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.
It's like a full-length episode of Boris Karloff's Thriller TV series, very stylishly done.
[A] smartly-turned thriller about witchcraft, skepticism and dark magic adapted from the Fritz Leiber novel "Conjure Wife" by two of the masters of fantasy, horror and suspense: Richard Matheson and Charles Beaumont...
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.
Probably the finest hour-and-a-half of director Sidney Hayers' long and generally undistinguished career.
The film is never less than gripping, and past a certain point, you have no idea where this movie is going.
O diretor Sidney Hayers consegue até criar um clima de suspense razoável, mas o roteiro absurdo (que, por incrível que pareça, se leva realmente a sério) anula seus esforços.
Interesting, but uninspired version of a great horror novel, Conjure Wife.
Performances and tone are expertly judged and despite the odd Americanism this is a quality serving of intelligent English horror.
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
