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.
Man which Lee stars in alone. But it's a lot like the Wicker Man except it's more of just a mystery movie than horror and a few scenes
kinda of slow it down but whenever Cushing or Lee is on the screen the movie never gets boring and the ending is very good.
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.Read more ›
