USA, 1961
Fantasy, Horror

Darum geht's

Johnny, Matrose, ist fasziniert von Mora, die als Meerjungfrau verkleidet Teil einer Karnevalgesellschaft ist. Die Party findet am Meer statt. Johnny merkt schnell, dass Mora mehr als eine Nebenattraktion des Zauberers ist.

Night Tide Regie Curtis Harrington
Tarot readings, beachside drum circles and secret languages remind of Harrington’s interest in the occult, never uncannier than in this story of selves split between rational daylight and mythical nighttime.

Night Tide shares more than just superficial similarity with Cat People; it is a direct continuation and embellishment upon the earlier film’s ideas about sex (and women and fear) in America… The fear of ones own sexuality and what it could do to another person is at the heart of both Night Tide andCat People.

The film is so lovely that the characteristic Harrington theme of incestuous obsession hits you nearly on the rebound, asserting itself with an intensity that empowers Night Tide to quietly grow in stature as you turn the film over in your mind.
