Nothing But the Night

Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing pursue leads surrounding the murders of wealthy philanthropists. Events do not proceed in a very linear fashion and there are several unexpected and unpredictable happenings. Uneven tone threatens to derail the movie and there are clunky, but not amateurish, scenes on a regular basis. Some casting is a bit dubious but it all works out by the end. With a bigger budget and a more thoughtful script, this could have been truly great but only at the risk of losing its camp charm.
