"With Night of the Demon, Jacques Tourneur pits logic against the boundless mysteries of the supernatural, focusing not on the fear of the unknown and unseen, but the fear of accepting and confronting the inexplicable. After asking Dana Andrews’s comically hardheaded Dr. Holden how can one differentiate between the powers of darkness and the powers of the mind, Niall MacGinnis’s wily satanic cult leader conjures up a storm of epic proportions to prove to the pragmatic doctor that the power of"

" Despite significant changes from the M. R. James short story from which it is adapted (the story, for example, does not have a corporeal monster, and the monster in the film has been singled out as the movie's sole weakness), Night of the Demon still manages to be a cracking good ghost story, one that pays dutiful homage to its source.

"14.8. Jacques Tourneurin demonielokuva alkaa lupaavasti oikein näyttävällä demonihärvelillä. Sen jälkeen jäyhäleukainen jenkkimies tutkii asioita lähestulkoon tappavan tylsästi. Erikoistehosteet ovat komeita ja irvokkaan koomisia, ja välillä elokuvan typeryys naurattaa ääneen, mutta suurimman osan ajasta minulla oli vain tylsää."
