Standard Edition of 'NIGHT OF THE DEMON' coming from Indicator films

Due to unprecedented demand for the NIGHT OF THE DEMON LIMITED EDITION 2-Disc Blu-ray Box Set, Indicator are releasing a standard 2-disc edition on 26th November.

This version will not include the special packaging, double-sided poster or 80-page book, but it will carry over all alternative feature presentations and the incredible array of new and archival special features.

Based on M R James’ classic tale of terror, ‘Casting the Runes’, and adapted for the screen by regular Hitchcock collaborator Charles Bennett, Jacques Tourneur’s (Cat People, I Walked with a Zombie, Out of the Past) Night of the Demon is considered to be one of the seminal horror films of Twentieth-Century cinema.
