Rating:
Burn, Witch, Burn, also known as Night of the Eagle, is a 1962 British horror movie directed by Sidney Hayers. The film is based on Conjure Wife, a 1943 novel by Fritz Leiber. Norman Taylor (Peter Wyngarde) is a rational college professor who does not believe in being superstitious. When he discovers that his seemingly perfect wife, Tansy (Janet Blair), is actually practicing witchcraft, the knowledge shakes the foundation of his beliefs and infuriates him. Despite Tansy's insistence that she is trying to protect his career, he forces her to get rid of all her occult artifacts and to stop practicing magic. As soon as Tansy's protections are gone, he begins to face horrible allegations from both his students and his colleagues. As the pressure at work increases, Norman begins to believe Tansy's claim that dark forces are working against him. This classic black-and-white horror film relies on a suspenseful atmosphere to keep its viewers captivated until its explosive ending.
