Dead of Night stood out among British films of the 1940s, influencing many subsequent British films in the horror genre. A portmanteau work from four of Ealing’s best directors, the film is a spooky psychological thriller made up of four chilling ghost stories set against the background of a weekend house party, where the guests entertain each other with tales of uncanny or supernatural events, telling stories which make up four segments within the film: The Hearse Driver, The Christmas Party, The Haunted Mirror and The Golfer’s Story.
