Deathdream (aka Dead of Night)
A man returns home from Vietnam, despite being already declared dead.
Dir Bob Clark
With Richard Backus, John Marley, Lynn Carlin
Charles and Christine Brooks should be delighted when their son Andy returns home from Vietnam. The only thing is, they had already been informed of his death. A deft blend of searing political allegory and wicked grindhouse thrills, this ingenious riff on the classic short story The Monkey’s Paw ranks alongside Romero’s Dead films in terms of socially smart, cerebral horror.
