Night of the Eagle 12 rating

A sceptical professor falls prey to diabolical evil when he burns his wife's protective magic charms.

Horror 1962 84 mins

Director: Sidney Hayers


Successful sociologist Norman Taylor is dismayed by his wife Tansy's magic charms, which, she insists, ward off evil. When he burns them, his disbelief is tested by dreadful misfortune. Sidney Hayer's 1962 British horror is an unfairly obscure link in the dark cinematic chain between Night of the Demon and The Wicker Man, a gripping tale of contemporary Cornish witchcraft fuelled by an intense performance from Peter Wyngarde.
