Another little gem that's hard to find, 19 January 2011
Author: crystalart from United States

One Dark Night is not an ordinary horror film.

From the opening scene where multiple hearses pull up to pick up the dead they have your attention!

I've enjoyed this film from the first time I saw it. It was hard to find a good DVD copy, and I watched it again tonight with pleasure.

It contains a lot of elements unusual to horror films of the period, and it can really keep you guessing.

This is the first film in which I saw Meg Tilly. I've really enjoyed the work she and her sister, Jennifer, have done over the years.

It's hard to forget Adam West as Batman, but I managed.

If you can find a copy of this, make yourself a bowl of popcorn and settle back for a very enjoyable hour and a half.
