The Night Visitor

The Night Visitor

Laslo Benedek (1970)



Our Score
Very odd and rarely shown, this intriguing, arty horror movie was shot in Sweden by Hungarian director Laslo Benedek and stars a handful of Ingmar Bergman's repertory company of actors - Max von Sydow, Liv Ullmann, Per Oscarsson. Von Sydow is a farmer accused of murder he didn't commit, who ingeniously escapes from his insane asylum prison nightly to kill the people who put him there. This spooky gothic thriller has a compelling atmosphere that's most unusual.


Crime horror starring Max von Sydow, Trevor Howard and Liv Ullmann. Salem escapes from an insane asylum where he was confined for being an axe-murder. Music by Mancini.
