Synopsis

A sailor (Dennis Hopper’s first starring role!) falls in love with a girl in a beatnik jazz club, and is drawn into a strange world in which she may be a mermaid. Turning Venice Beach locations into indelible film noir images, Night Tide is part gothic horror, part mood piece, all fever dream.

Our take

Enter the witchy world of 60s B-movies! A young (but still crazy) Dennis Hopper starred in Curtis Harrington’s career-launching indie horror flick, which spins atmospheric, playful tales of the supernatural in the vein of Val Lewton or Carnival of Souls. A cult classic, now restored in HD!
