About Dead of Night (1945): Based on stories by H.G. Wells, John Baines, E.F. Benson, Angus MacPhail, individual segments directed by Alberto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden, and Robert Hamer. It stars Mervyn Johns, Googie Withers, Sally Ann Howes, and Michael Redgrave. An architect visits a country house only to get trapped in a recurring nightmare involving tales of the occult told by fellow guests at the manor. A portmanteau work from four of Ealing Studio’s best directors, Dead of Night preyed masterfully on the post-war fears and paranoia of the 1940s.
