- Endless Night review by RP
Not often that a film one saw back when it was released in the early 70s still manages to engage. It could have been just another thriller that is based on an Agatha Christie story. Easily forgettable and quickly dismissed. However even after all this time Endless Night still manages to hold the atmosphere with some lovely casting and acting. The twist in the tale, the change of direction. All are well done and delightfully joined together. The elfin Hayley Mills was never lovelier. Britt Ekland was never so believable. A lovely little thriller that will draw you in. Delighted to see it again after all this time.
