​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

DEATHDREAM  aka DEAD OF NIGHT (1974)


It's obscure horror night tonight - and we start with #61, a favorite of mine, Deathdream aka Dead of Night (1974). Lynn Carlin and John Marley get the dreadful news that their son has died in Vietnam. But Lynn mightily begs and pleads for her son to come back to her. Unexpectedly, Andy (Richard Backus) shows up in his dress uniform in the middle of the night. But there's something not right with Andy - a fact that mom ignores. This is low budget, low key and boasts excellent performances from all. It's creepy and sometimes shocking. If you ever run across this and dig horror off the beaten trail, do watch this. From the director of A Christmas Story, Bob Clark.
