Things Happen at Night1947

  • 3.8
Adapted from a classic West End farce, THINGS HAPPEN AT NIGHT features a classic cast of British comedy stars trying to banish a mischievous, poltergeist spirit from a stately home. Wilfred Prescott enlists the help of an eccentric psychic researcher to purge the spirit from his possessed daughter so that she can marry the son of wealthy businessman, Vincent Ebury. When Ebury witnesses the psychic shenanigans he gives Prescott twenty-four hours to banish the spirit or else the wedding will be called off. When a shifty cockney insurance salesman visits the house, the spirit erupts into a frenzy of poltergeist activity leaving a trail of comic encounters in its wake.

Lots of fun. British slapstick comedy full of funny characters and amusing special effects. Moves a little slow for today's audience but once you get into the 'spirit' of things so to speak you will have a good time.
