Reel Britannia - a very British podcast about very British movies - with just a hint of professionalism.
A very special episode this week with a very special friend.
Scott and Steven are joined by their dear friend Adam Roche, host of the Secret History of Hollywood, Attaboy Clarence and The Labours of Hercule podcasts.
An invite stretching back about five years ago has resulted in an episode recorded way back last year, just before Christmas, and finally seeing the light of day...anyone would think we really didn't want him on the show!
But, of course, we did and we spent a most enjoyable Sunday morning chatting and having a really good laugh as we duscussed a movie very close to Adam's heart.
Night of the Demon (1957)
American psychologist John Holden (Dana Andrews) arrives in England to discover that his colleague, Henry Harrington (Maurice Denham), has suddenly died following his efforts to discredit notorious occultist Julian Karswell (Niall MacGinnis). The cynical Holden dismisses Karswell's warnings as supernatural nonsense, even when he and Harrington's niece, Joanna (Peggy Cummins), are confronted by a series of bizarre and inexplicable events. Holden discovers that Karswell has slipped him a parchment featuring ancient runic symbols a sign that, like Harrington before him, he has been marked for imminent destruction by a fire-breathing demon. As the night of his threatened demise draws nearer, the fearful Holden begins to suspect that Karswell has been telling the truth all along...
"It's in the trees...it's coming!"
