This week, Craig and Shawn talk about 1973’s ‘Nothing but the Night’, a movie about souls and the children who house them. It’s ostensibly horror movie, though honestly it’s not very scary or even all that creepy until – oops – the end sneaks up on you and you get a little mixture of both for a few minutes. It’s a hard movie to recommend and a hard movie to not recommend. So please – just watch it so that we don’t have to trouble ourselves either way.
If you do you’ll be treated to all sorts of little gems, like the fact that Michael Gambon is in it! And there’s an amazing performance by a woman who is almost Shelly Winters! Murders happen for seemingly no reason whatsoever, too, so if that’s your thing, you’re in for a treat.
