Night of the Demon (1957)

One of the greatest horror films ever made.

I've loved this film since I was a child. It is one of the few genre films that doesn't seem to have lost any impact in the 40 years since I saw it first. Niall MacGinnis is fantastic as the almost childlike but sinister Karswell and Dana Andrews (drunk or not) introduces just the right amount of scepticism into proceedings . Stand-out scene: the children's party! Give me this over any of these modern teen horrors any day.
