Fear in the Night was a slow-starting almost paint-by-numbers Hammer film from the 70s. Its got that patented look that Hammer was famous for and hell, Peter Cushing even showed up for a few scenes in a pivotal role. The problem is that Fear in the Night was so dry and sparse that by the time they got to the actual action it was a case of too little, too late. It wasn't a horrible movie, but having to look at Judy Geeson's face and all the stupid looks it made for an hour while you waited for something to happen was pretty damn tortuous. Not Hammer's finest moment but not their worst either.
I don't know why this has been lumped in with a Fear Factory DVD (same title maybe?), this is the Hammer thriller with Joan Collins and Peter Cushing. The film itself is pretty decent, but once you know the twist it becomes a bit predictable.
Not bad Hitchcockian psycho-thriller that has obviously borrowed from such films as "Les Diaboliques" and "Rebecca", unfortunately making it not that original and some-what predictable. The film moves at a glacial pace throughout the first hour as it tries to build mystery, yet not enough is generated to maintain the viewer's interest. Luckily, the last act features several interesting twists of the plot that are clever yet have been done before... thriller junkies like myself will foresee these twists but others who are not accustomed to the mechanics of the thriller plot may be caught off guard. Again, it wasn't bad, but it was hardly great either; it was merely efficient.
