YMMV: Night of the Demon

  • Broken Base: On whether the inclusion of the demon adds or detracts from the film
  • Hell Is That Noise: If you hear creepy bat-like chittering, your time is almost up.
  • Special Effect Failure: The closeups of the demon are more likely to inspire laughter than terror. Other effects, however, are really pretty good.
    • The closeups were a result of Executive Meddling - director Jacques Tourneur wanted the demon to be barely glimpsed. The demon's smoky long shots are effective, though.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The demon looks very impressive for the 50's.
  • Watch It for the Meme: A lot of Kate Bush fans found out about this film through her song Hounds of Love, which opens with the sampled line "It's in the trees, it's coming!"
