Movie Reviews

Dan Curtis, master of horror
cynicalgirl | Richmond, VA, USA | 03/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Before "Dead of Night" Dan Curtis did a three story anthology show called "Trilogy of Terror." It starred Karen Black; the first two segments were so-so; the third was unforgettable. The story entitled "Amelia" featured the Zuni fetish doll called "He Who Kills"; it was one of the greatest moments of horror, on tv or elsewhere.

And so it is with "Dead of Night." The first two stories are average. The third is a knockout. I remember seeing it when it first came on; I never forgot the final piece entitled "Bobby." Joan Hackett and Lee Montgomery are excellent. I won't reveal the story; it's best not to know what happens. All I'll say is that the segment is terrifying and features an ending that packs a wallop. Really, it was one of the most shocking, frightening things I've ever seen. And after it ends the credits roll over a background of total darkness, with the eerie sound of crickets making it seem even more foreboding.

This deserves five stars for "Bobby" alone. Dan Curtis at his best was a master of horror."
Strong Curtis film

"I would ignore the obvious spamming for "dead central" as the host there is trying to drum up hits for his website.

Good movie - alot to offer horror fans."
Its all about Bobby

"This film is all about Bobby, period. When I first saw this short story on TV, I was just a kid and I was haunted by it. While the rest of the movie is mediocre at best, Bobby is brilliant. I was very happy to find this classic restored on High Quality DVD9 with great menus and extras."
"Bobby"... It has lurked in my memory for over thirty years!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this trilogy when it first aired, probably on ABC, in 1977 when I was thirteen. I can't review the first two stories because I simply don't remember them. I think Mr. Curtis intentionally stuck the last story, "Bobby" at the end of the trilogy, and for good reason. It scared the hell out of a generation! I'm 45 now and cynical and jaded, but I just don't think I have the guts to purchase "Dead of Night" on Amazon. Television was so much fun back then!Dead of Night"
