Joe Dante On “Nothing But The Night” (1973)

I’m a huge fan of the site Trailers From Hell, it is a great place to get insights from a collection of some of the best and brightest that have or are still working in the film industry today. Edgar Wright, Roger Corman, Don Coscarelli, Rick Baker, Stuart Gordon, Mick Garris, Bill Duke, Larry Cohen, Guillermo del Toro, and Joe Dante to name a few.

The 1973 film that Joe Dante talks about below is “Nothing But The Night” and was the first and last film produced by Charlemagne, a company created by none other than Christopher Lee. I have not had the pleasure of seeing the film for myself but Joe Dante cites poor box office returns as the reason the company only had the single outing but at least Lee’s next film was better regarded as it was Robin Hardy’s “The Wicker Man”.
