3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Lee, Cushing Film!!! November 4, 2011
By Pulpman
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a film I had not seen until I ordered it from Amazon. It is not the best film by Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. but it is definitely not the worst.
Nothing but the Night is more of an occult mystery story. Lee and Cushing are both involved in the investigation of several murders the story evolves from these killings. It has a solid premise and the two stars equate themselves quite well as always.
I definetly recommend the movie for Hammer horror fans and fans of Lee and Cushing. I enjoyed the film and will be viewing it again in the near future.
The transfer is good on this dvd and the sound was what one should expect from a film made in the 70's on a budget.
The price is reasonable at under $15. Give it a try as it was Chris Lee's attempt to set up his own production company. The company may not have done any more movies but it did well with this one it is a good film.

4.0 out of 5 stars THEIR LAST GOOD SCARE TOGETHER! November 13, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is probably the last good movie Lee & Cushing did together. I know of HOUSE OF THE LONG SHADOW and it's fun to watch, but this is a much better film. Reminds me some what of THE WICKER MAN. One doesn't know what's going on till the last few minutes. Enjoy these great master of horrors in their last good film together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cushing and Lee together! December 28, 2011
By Bela
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once again Cushing and Lee are two two the greatest actors
ever but never get their credit! They belong in the same
catagory as Brando, Pacino, Deniro, Wayne etc.... This is
not the greatest movie but it's very good and they give
their all as they do with any part! that's an actor!
Like Karloff and Lugosi no part was too small! actors
don't do that today nor can they act their way out of
a paper bag! A must for Cushing and Lee fans!

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat ambitious but not terribly compelling September 5, 2012
Starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, it's not surprising that 1973's Nothing But the Night was the only film made by the production company set up by Lee and veteran Hammer producer Anthony Nelson Keys to try to inject some new life into the then-as-ever failing British film industry. You can see that on one level it's a vaguely ambitious attempt to do something a bit different, but it's not a terribly compelling mystery and its horrific undertones are played down for most of the running time, with director Peter Sasdy doing a professional but rather flat job of it.

For much of the film it's a fairly ambling investigation into a fatal coach crash that may have been intended to kill the rich trustees of an orphanage on a remote Scottish island who have recently been dropping like flies but which instead ended up killing the driver and hospitalising one of their charges who turns out to be central to the would-be mysterious goings on (Gwyneth Strong, who would grow up to marry Rodney in Only Fools and Horses). Keith Barron's doctor thinks she's too psychologically disturbed to be returned, Lee's pompous and obnoxious semi-retired detective thinks she's just collateral damage, George Brown's confrontational reporter thinks her nightmares may hold the key to it all and Cushing's pathologist is largely just there to listen to everybody else's theories while suspicion is cast heavy-handedly on the girl's ex-prostitute natural mother (Diana Dors) who helpfully has already done time for murder.

Yet the threat is rather vague for much of the film even after a couple of dead bodies turn up and there's no-one to really root for thanks to cardboard characterisation and misjudged performances.

NOTHING BUT THE NIGHT opens w/ a series of murders committed by a mysterious, black-gloved killer. Enter Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee as Doctor Mark Ashley and Colonel Charles Bingham respectively. They team up in an attempt to get to the bottom of the deaths. After another murder, a prostitute w/ a violent past is the prime suspect. Her daughter, Mary, now in an orphanage, witnessed two of the murders. Now, mum will stop at nothing to get to Mary. More murders occur when 5 orphanage trustees are blown up! In fact, all of the victims were trustees. That is, until one of the orphans is found dead. NBTN is a supernatural thriller w/ a wonderfully wicked twist at the end! Lee and Cushing are as good as ever. Highly recommended...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not A Hammer Film April 8, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not a Hammer Film although it stars Hammer regulars Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing and was directed by Hammer regular Peter Sasdy. This is actually a murder mystery with supernatural undertomes where Lee is the Inspector in charge of solving a series of brutal murders with the help of hospital pathologist Cushing. Even though it is rated PG, don't let that fool you, because it's a 70's PG, where adult films with plenty of blood and a hint of nudity were allowed. I'll let you uncover the murder mystery on your own, but this superior DVD from Scorpion Releasing in its original OAR is the best way to experience the film. Try it. You'll like it!

4.0 out of 5 stars confusing plot line
This film had a confusing plot line especially at the end. Lee and Cushing in straight roles (somewhat disappointing). Chubby Diana Dors past her prime in a dumb red wig.
