Dark Intruder (1965)

Leslie Nielsen, Peter Mark Richman, Judi Meredith
In this horror film, set in San Francisco during the Victorian age, a criminologist is often out-guessed by his little valet and a sensitive mandrake plant.

The criminologist stops the wizard in the nick of time.

  1. Excellent horror mystery! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 17th 2016

    Dark Intruder is a very good horror mystery, filmed in B&W to excellently capture the place and period..late 1800s San Francisco with foggy nights featured...Leslie Nielsen very good as the detective who has great knowledge of science and the occult...Well written story and just well done...produced by the always reliable Jack Laird. My highest recommendation!

  2. ...And Don't Call Me Shirley 4 Star Review

    Posted by on May 21st 2016

    1) If you're holding out for the letterbox version, forget it. Dark Intruder was a made-for-TV pilot for a series to be called (The) Black Cloak. After it didn't sell (by some accounts network suits found it too scary for TV viewers) it was theatrically released, probably for the drive-in trade.

    2) There's a James Earl Jones/ David Prowse situation in this film. (Prowse was
    Darth Vader in fact, Jones in spirit-- as if you didn't know.) Werner "Colonel Klink" Klemperer wore the heavy makeup as Malaki, Norman Lloyd, producer, director and occasional actor on Alfred Hitchcock Presents, provided the voice.

    3) Producer Jack Laird would go on to helm (and have intramural skirmishes with the guy whose name was on the show) Rod Serling's The Night Gallery.

    As for the film itself, Harvey Hart does an admirable job creating a gaslit, fogbound gothic atmosphere and Leslie Nielsen is a likable lead as the eccentric ghost (and skirt) chaser Brett Kingsford. You wonder if there's not something in the "too scary for the average Neilsen family" story because as a pilot it appears effective enough to sell a series and seems like a promising formula ripe with possibilities. It brings to mind, in feel and in setting, The Wild Wild West program, especially the B/W first-- and best-- season.

  3. Leslie Neilsen is the hero! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on May 1st 2016

    Seriously... did you ever expect to see a movie where Leslie Neilsen played the hero? Well, it happened at least a couple of times - once in Forbidden Planet, and once in Dark Intruder. Neilsen plays a psychic investigator looking into several gruesome murders committed by... well, that would be telling. Check it out for yourself... I predict I'll be glad you did.

    And just so you know, I received an excellent copy - no snow, no dropouts, no jump cuts.

  4. a genuine blast from the mid 60's. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 26th 2015

    Over the top performances by TV and movie actors in a pilot for a TV series that wasn't picked up. Released to the theaters running about an hour in black and white it delivers all the elements that made them so popular on the small screen. Don't try to analyze it, just sit back and enjoy this delightfully cheesy tidbit.
