DEAD OF NIGHT   (1945)
Directed by Alberto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden, Robert Hamer

(102 min., in English)

This was the original ‘anthology’ movie, where our central character goes to a country house to do some work on it. But then as he is approaching the place he has a sensation of Déjà vu, an eerie feeling that this incident has happened before. When he gets there he meets several people who then begin to relate their own ‘weird tales’, and the movie delves into each of the stories in an almost dream-like way. So what we get is a series of five uncanny stories, with each becoming more creepy than the other.

One of the key sequences stars Micheal Redgrave as a nightclub performer with his ventriloquist puppet, which opens us to the idea that puppets might have a life of their own.
