Curse of the Demon

Curse of the Demon

Directed by Jacques Tourneur

An American psychologist (Dana Andrews) journeys to London to debunk a devil-worshipping cult after his colleague is mysteriously murdered, but soon becomes the next target of a demonic curse. Well known for less-is-more horror hits like 1942’s CAT PEOPLE, Jacques Tourneur returned to the genre after 14 years for this eerie Satanic scarefest. But the producer nixed Tourneur’s plans to avoid showing the titular monster, much to his dismay. Despite this, CURSE became a ‘50s horror classic, referenced in both THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and Kate Bush’s “Hounds of Love”.

Absolute classic. We wouldn't have "Drag Me to Hell" without this one.

Awesome. 5 stars all the way. Great story and writing, had shades of Sam Raimi's Drag Me To Hell. Highly recommended!
