Really nice movie, finally available DVD. Well, DVD-R, but still. And interesting compare and contrast with Universal’s version with Lon Chaney Jr. (The ending of which foretells the climax of Flowers in the Attic.)
Is this BURN, WITCH, BURN? If not, I seem to recall a similar scene in that.
BWB was on Netflix instant (where I saw it, before I dropped the “instant” part).
Wasn’t the Chaney movie called Weird Woman ? BTW, if Chaney has a moustache in one of his movies,it means he’s supposed to be sexually attractive.
Yes, I believe so. It’s been a bit since I’ve screened it, however. Still, one of the very few really good witchcraft movies I can recall (along with HORROR HOTEL and Hammer’s THE WITCHES) as a Christian viewer.
Yeah, quite atmospheric and subtle overall, though the hero had one of the worst cases of Sheer Stubborn Pigheadedness I have ever seen.
The title is BURN, WITCH, BURN? By any chance do you know if the plot is taken from an A. Merritt novel of the same name?
I think it’s actually Fritz Leiber’s “Conjure Wife.”
This is all going to look silly if the movie is NOT “Burn Witch Burn.”
I sort of resemble Chaney, and I’m still a bachelor so I guess you have a point. I guess I should also be glad that I wasn’t able to grow such a mustache, because I tried a couple of times!
Yeah. If I were going to do a monster from BURN WITCH BURN, I would have gone with the giant bird!
I couldn’t find a good still of it, and anyway, this actually fit this week’s theme, being ’60s-era Brit reinventions of classic movie monsters; zombie, vampire, werewolf and witch.
Nope. It’s the best of at least three adaptations of Fritz Leiber’s novel Conjure Wife.
Ah! Thanks for clearing that up. I’ll have to read that novel one of these days.
The British title was NIGHT OF THE EAGLE. I’ve only seen the latter part of the film, but it was very well done, with some top-notch acting.
Yeah, he’d get along well with Dana Andrews from Night of the Demon.
