  • The British Can Make Great Cinema

    This is one of those movies that defines British films. They never fail to satisfy when it comes to the horror/suspense genre. There should be a month devoted to nothing but British horror, encompassing this movies and others like it as well as those Hammer Studio treats. Just outstanding.

  • Literate, Thoughtful Thriller

    Burn, Witch Burn (aka Night of the Eagle) is among the best of the 1960's British horror thrillers. Literate and thoughtful--it achieves it's purpose without blood and gore. This film hasn't surfaced on Amercian TV in over thirty years and the only official studio DVD release is on a Region 2, UK label. American horror fans deserve the opportunity to see and enjoy this film today.

    Excellent. One of the best horror movies from the 1960's. Incredible atmosphere. At times truly spooky without showing anything bloody or horrible. I have an excellent VHS print, but would love to see an equally good DVD released very soon.

  • Truly scary little gem.

    BURN WITCH BURN stars Janet Blair as the wife of a British professor in this little known gem of a horror film. Made in 1962,it's as much about psycological horror as any other. Blair believes her "powers" keep her husband and their life-style safe and secure. The husband, of course, doesn't believe any such thing. Through a series of startling events, he certainly begins to wonder if maybe, after all, his wife is, indeed, a "witch".Crisply filmed in glorious black and white and set on an English Univerity campus, the movie has a great look and quite eerie feel at times. Succintly told, like many of the films of the period, no time is wasted on unnecessary details. Based on a very successful novel, CONJURE WIFE, this is straight-forward story-telling, well-photographed and surprisingly well-acted.If you like the classic style of horror film, not brimming with blood and gore but shadows and fog, and spine-tingling music, and a nice little surprise here and there, then this is the picture for you.
