Night of the Demon ( aka Curse of the Demon )

'It's in the trees! It's coming!' American psychologist John Holden (Dana Andrews) arrives in England to discover that his colleague, Henry Harrington (Maurice Denham), has suddenly died following his efforts to discredit notorious occultist Julian Karswell (Niall MacGinnis). The cynical Holden dismisses Karswell's warnings as supernatural nonsense, even when he and Harrington's niece, Joanna (Peggy Cummins), are confronted by a series of bizarre and inexplicable events. Holden discovers that Karswell has slipped him a parchment featuring ancient runic symbols - a sign that, like Harrington before him, he has been marked for imminent destruction by a fire-breathing demon. As the night of his threatened demise draws nearer, the fearful Holden begins to suspect that Karswell has been telling the truth all along... Based on the story "Casting the Runes" by Montague R. James. This DVD release contains both the original full-length UK version (titled "Night of the Demon", 91 mins) and the re-titled and re-edited US version ("Curse of the Demon", 78 mins).
