CURSE OF THE DEMON
(1957, Columbia [Sony], 95 min.)
An American psychologist (Dana Andrews) travels to England to discredit the occult beliefs of the "Demon Cult." He's aided by a feisty schoolteacher (Peggy Cummins) whose father may have been killed by the Satanists. This suggestive and suspenseful sojourn into the Black Arts is one of the most spellbinding horror films ever made.
(1957, The Rank Organization [Park Circus], 101 min.)
An ex-con (Stanley Baker) trying to go straight takes a job driving for a corrupt trucking company, where the bosses pit the drivers against each other in a dangerous competition that leads to higher profits and . . . death! Peggy Cummins is the saucy secretary who flirts her way through an array of up-and-coming stars. A gear-grinding masterpiece!
