Directed by Robert Stevenson
Produced in 1936-73
Main Language - English
Countries & Regions - British Film
Contains Nothing But the Night (Sasdy, 1973), Vampire Circus (Young, 1971) and The Man Who Changed His Mind (Stevenson, 1936).
Adapted from a novel by John Blackburn, Nothing but the Night is an occult mystery which, in its Scottish setting and centrality of children to the plot, is reminiscent of The Wicker Man. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee - as a pathologist and a policeman respectively - star as the men trying to work out the mystery behind the sudden deaths of trustees of an island castle orphanage.
A Hammer horror set in early 19th century Serbia, Vampire Circus sees an itinerant circus arrive in a small village. Initially there is rejoicing at the prospect of entertainment to relieve the burden of years of plague, believed by the superstitious locals to be the result of a vampire's curse - but shortly after the circus's arrival the children of the village start to die in mysterious circumstances.
The Man Who Changed His Mind is a rare 1936 British Boris Karloff film. Karloff plays Dr. Laurience, a once-respectable scientist whose research has led him to research the origin of the mind and the soul. The scientific community has rejected him, and he risks losing everything for which he has worked - but then he is offered a lifeline - and the use of a laboratory - by the owner of a newspaper looking for a good story. But just whose brains is Dr. Laurience going to experiment on?
