Quotes

Appleby: How nicely you've done the house. Did you know this was three rooms when I was a child? Beautiful, quite beautiful. I do love Indian art. Erotic, violent... your inspiration for this whole scheme, I assume. So charming. Oh... will you be away long?
Ellen Wheeler: At the moment, that seems to depend on... you Mr. Appleby.
Appleby: Oh, Mrs. Wheeler... Inspector Walker wouldn't believe me either. But I do admire you. How many "abandoned wives", or cockhols for that matter, would have had your courage to pull off what you...

Excellent Horror Film with Elizabeth Taylor!
19 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Elizabeth Taylor stars in her only foray in the horror genre with Laurence Harvey in "Night Watch," based on a story by "Sorry, Wrong Number" author Lucille Fletcher. She and husband Laurence are living across from a deserted house, run down from neglect and which has a supposed curse on it – a rumor that people were killed there and therefore the house hasn't been sold or rented in years. This spooky ominousness sets the tone, and then she begins to see visions of death in the windows of the old house - a man with his throat being cut. She calls the police to investigate, and soon they tire of her calling and calling after each sighting. But she insists she sees dead bodies over there. Doesn't anybody believe me?, she asks. Also, a friend of the family played by Billie Whitelaw is hanging around all the time and flirting with Laurence and he her. Besides the disturbing undercurrent of menace and her constant sightings of dead bodies, not much really happens for the bulk of the film, but it's the anticipation of violence that may erupt any time that keeps you in knots, along with her paranoia. Then comes the climax, and even if you've guessed it, you won't believe what you are seeing! Elizabeth Taylor is beautiful here and all players are excellent in this must-see horror classic, which will haunt you until you….
