In NIGHT OF TERROR, a teacher named Linda Daniel (Donna Mills- PLAY MISTY FOR ME) and her friend Celeste (Catherine Burns) are giving their usual, children's art class in Linda's apartment. Outside her door, a scuffle draws her attention, so she takes a look, witnessing a man being brutalized in the hallway. When the man is killed for something he supposedly has, Linda's life changes forever. Believing she's been given whatever it is, a group of mob-types, led by Brian Dipaulo (Chuck Connors- TV's HORROR AT 37,000 FEET, SOYLENT GREEN), begin following and terrorizing Linda and Celeste. These guys mean business! While fleeing from Dipaulo, the women are involved in a tragic automobile accident, resulting in Linda's lengthy hospitalization. With Celeste gone, and Linda's legs out of commission, she fears she'll have to face the relentless, maniacal Dipaulo on her own. Enter Captain Caleb Sark (Martin Balsam- PSYCHO, CAPE FEAR), who agrees to help Linda, even taking over her rehab therapy. Taken to an undisclosed location, Linda and Sark hunker down. Meanwhile, Dipaulo and his fellow thugs close in. What is it they want? Why is it worth killing for? Tense and perfectly-paced, this made-for-TV suspense thriller is a great example of the care put into these 1970's productions. Mills and Balsam are fantastic, as is Connors in his eeevil role. EXTRA CREDIT FOR: Agnes Moorehead (THE BAT, HUSH... HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE) as Linda's strict physical therapist, Bronsky. Highly recommended...
