32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 17: The Devil Walks at Midnight!

Devils Nightmare

Before we get to some Belgian/Italian horror, we go first to New York City. A couple of years back, I posted a bit about The Procession of the Ghouls, which happens every year at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. A bunch of costumes and puppets make their outlandish way through the cathedral, coupled with (this year) a screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I decided to see what they had been up to recently. This home movie from 2012 I’m sure is just about half as cool as these things actually look. One day, I’m going to be there for this. Info on this year can be found here.


Then what follows is an episode of Suspense, with an adaptation of “The Dunwich Horror” starring Ronald Colman (Tale of Two Cities). This was originally broadcast on November 1, 1945. (For some reason, the embed has it on there twice. No idea.) It’s available as an MP3 here.

And yes, last but not least, the film also known as The Devil’s Nightmare, Succubus and Castle of Death…it’s The Devil Walks at Midnight, from 1971. The moral of the story, if you’re out tourist-ing, don’t get off the beaten path. Especially if you’re an embodiment of one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Pro-tip there. Enjoy.
