Dead Of Night (1974) A young Soldier is killed in the line of duty in Vietnam. That same night, the soldier returns home, brought back by his Mother's wishes that he "Don't Die"! Upon his Return, Andy sits in his room, refusing to see his friends or family, venturing out only at night. The Vampiric horror is secondary to the terror that comes from the disintegration of a typical American family.

More Movie Taglines:
  • See the Shattering Suspense From the Start!
  • He was a madman on a orgy of blood curdling terror...
  • Something unspeakable has come home.
  • The dead of night changed the lives of many... and ended the lives of some.
Movie Trivia:
  • Tom Savini's first film as a make-up artist.
  • Christopher Walken was considered for the part of Andy.
  • Richard Backus was cast as Andy because he was able to create a silent stare of intense hatred for the casting agent. Backus' creepy facial expression came into play frequently for the film.
  • The 'decaying' makeup for Richard Backus took six hours to apply.
  • For the opening Vietnam scene there was additional footage shot of a traumatized Andy walking through the jungle among the bloody carnage. The footage was cut in favor of a quicker intro to the story. There was also suppose to be a similar scene later where Andy walks through the streets at night and comes across a blind veteran sitting on a porch. This scene was also cut for time.
