Night Tide, On MUBI, Evades The Traditional Trappings Of Both Horror And Fantasy


Full review here

Curtis Harrington’s Night Tide is considered to be a fantasy as well as a horror movie. However, it’s completely different from the traditional trappings of both genres. The dreamy or scary elements do not charge headlong at the audience in a rush to fill them with empty and ephemeral awe. In fact, for the most part, you don’t even think that you are watching something related to either fantasy or horror. We follow Johnny Drake (Dennis Hopper), a sailor, walking around and talking with a young woman named Mora (Linda Lawson) in Santa Monica. He finds her alone at a jazz club and falls for her.
