William Castle teamed up Golden Age icons (and real-life former married couple) Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor for this creepy mind-bender from the pen of Psycho novelist Robert Bloch. In her final big screen leading role, Stanwyck plays a wealthy woman who finds herself increasingly haunted by vivid nightmares after the death of her husband. Taylor is the attorney who may hold the key to the mystery. The Night Walker, seldom seen in recent years, is one of Castle’s final black-and-white spookfests and, aided by a spine-tingling score from “The Addams Family” composer Vic Mizzy, is also one of his trippiest.
1964, 86 minutes, black and white, 35mm | Produced and directed by William Castle; written by Robert Bloch; with Robert Taylor, Barbara Stanwyck, Judi Meredith, Hayden Rorke, Rochelle Hudson.
