A Terrific Made For Television Movie From The Early 1970s
24 July 2004 | by (HUXLEY,IOWA) – See all my reviews

Night Slaves is one of my favorite made for television movies.I saw this recently, and it was as good as I remember from when I was a young teenager. This is a terrific made for television movie of an earlier era in the early 1970s.I will not give away the plot, but I can say that this is a most unusual thriller.The music in this movie is great! I wish that I had a soundtrack of the music.The writing is very intelligent, and it makes for a good story that will actually keep your interest.James Franciscus does a wonderful job as the husband. Lee Grant is terrific as the wife.Those two actors played in so many wonderful movies.If you want to see a good thriller, that has an unusual storyline, then you should definitely see this little gem.I can highly recommend this to the entire family!!
