What's the problem???
23 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really, what is the problem? This movie has a great script, a great score, great actors and a great director. There really is nothing to hate about this movie. The Night Walker is similar to William Castle's other films; like House on Haunted Hill and The Tingler, and this movie is just as creepy. It's basically about nightmares. Are they nightmares or are they more. Great story line. But there is also a great twist. I rented this movie, but I was at first going to buy it to add to my William Castle collection. I rented it and expected a terrible movie. I was surprised to see that it wasn't a terrible, but a great horror movie or a great mystery. I especially like the part where Barbara Stanwyck is screaming, "I can't wake up!" "I can't wake up!" This is a great movie. See it and you won't be disappointed.
