Night of the Demon – Kate Bush

Way back in May I wrote about one of my favourite films Night of the Demon, (see here) based upon the MR James story Casting the Runes. curiously a recent post on the Classic Horror Campaign website reminded me that Kate Bush sampled Maurice Denham’s line from the film “it’s in the trees, it’s coming!” in the song Hounds of Love.

Here’s a pretty little video mash-up of the song and film.
