Critic Reviews for Night Has a Thousand Eyes

All Critics (4)

A compelling enough supernatural thriller and a kind of forerunner to M. Night Shayamalan. (Kino Lorber Studio Classics blu-ray review).

January 5, 2022 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

[Night Has a Thousand Eyes] gets off to a good start but bogs down midway and flops completely before the finale. Another piece of corn like this and Edward G. Robinson will be doing quickies for his paycheck.

Here's a thriller that should keep viewers alert and engaged.

November 21, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, director John Farrow stripped most of the dark obsessions that fueled the excellent novel and instead made it into a conventional cinema thriller.
