Chiller
2 February 2005 | by ugottabkiddinmeSee all my reviews

I was 17 when this movie was released. At the time, I thought it was the best movie that I had seen. Another reviewer indicated that the movie was less than enjoyable - much less. Never the less, I hardily recommend it to all those 17 year olds out there. I wonder if the modern chillers have cooled the potential effects of the 60's era on the teens.

In 1964, I found the movie intriguing. It made such an impression that I can still feel the tension as the movie progressed. It was a cliff hanger until the very end. Even now, some of the scenes remain vivid in my mind. It thoroughly entertained without stooping to gratuitous nudity, sex, and profane utterances as seems comprise 95%+ of the genre today.

I look forward to viewing Nightwalker again. Will I find it as good, or will I find that the years have mellowed my appreciation for the work. I can't wait to find out.
