Title

Night of the Demon

Description

"It's coming... It's in the trees!" Where to begin? One of only two English language feature film adaptation of an MRJ tale to date (and Drag me to Hell is only a very loose adaptation). Books have been written on this movie and almost as many theories cling to it as to James's ghost stories. As with James's fiction though, the most important factor is that it's really enjoyable.

Not particularly true to the tale but the excellent Karswell more than compensates.
