Audience Reviews for Things Happen at Night
Entertaining "B" British movie, it effectively mixes comedy and suspense. Good cast and nicely acted.
When his daughter (Vaughan) becomes the conduit for a fire-starting poltergeist, Mr. Prescott (Drayton) teams with an insurance adjuster (Harker) and a paranormal investigator to annoy the spirit and drive it out. "Things Happen at Night" is a weak attempt at a horror comedy. It features a nice cast of actors who labor mightily with the bad script, but who ultimately can't overcome the material. There's very little reason to wach this film unless you're the world's biggest fan of comedian Gordon Harker. (I came across this film in the "[url="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BQ5IXW?ie=UTF8&tag=stevemillesdo-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B000BQ5IXW"]Dark Crimes[/url]" movie collection. It's an odd choice for inclusion in that set. It's out of place in a collection of film noir and detective movies, and it's not a movie that's worth preserving.)
