TCM's month of horror!
Turner Classic Movies this October is televising a slew of classic horror flicks. Right now "Curse of the Demon," a.k.a "Night of the Demon," is playing. This is a great horror film from 1957 starring Dana Andrews, Peggy Cummins and the great Niall MacGinnis. If you're reading this post, that means you are either missing this movie or have missed it altogether. Regardless, keep it in mind the next time you spot it in the TV listings. When I was a kid, this one scared the bejesus out of me. Imagine a witch's curse that sends a demon straight out of Hell after an intended victim! That's what this one is about. When I watched "Drag Me to Hell" a couple of years ago, I knew instantly where the filmmakers got the idea for it - from "Curse of the Demon."
