Quotes

Sergeant Norris: [after digging in the garden] It seems this is as far as we can go sir. There's nothing here.
Appleby: [to Inspector Walker] Well, what did you expect to find down there, Sherlock Holmes? A wax dummy covered with tomato ketchup? An earthworm with a revolver? I told you, last night me being there was pure curiosity. If I came to you and told you that I was looking for a dead body in that old house, wouldn't you come to have a look?
Inspector Walker: You could have at least told us last night the reason for your curiosity. ...

The Movie Nightwatch Is One Of The Scariest Movies Of All Time!!

The movie Nightwatch with Elizabeth Taylor and Laurence Harvey in my opinion is one of the scariest movies of all time!I still get scared when I watch this rare gem. Nightwatch is not real well known to the vast public.I saw this for the first time when it was in the theater back in the early 1970s.I can tell you I was thoroughly scared, and unnerved!Elizabeth was so good in her role as the nervous wife Ellen.I was thoroughly surprised with her range in this story. Laurence Harvey was excellent as the impatient husband. And all I can say about Billie Whitelaw is that she is a magnificent British actress.I do not understand why this terrific thriller does not come on television,it should.I purchased the video, and it is a lot of fun to sit down and watch this movie once in a while if you want a good scare!!I would recommend this film to all horror fans.
