Critic Reviews for Night Must Fall

All Critics (4)

Surprise masterpiece performance by Robert Montgomery in a psychological chiller. Rosalind Russell also strong. Film similar but in every way superior to Love From A Stranger.

May 5, 2020 | Full Review…

It isn't exactly a pleasant study, but it's extraordinarily well done, with moments so tense that you can almost hear your neighbor's scalp creep.

October 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Stagebound, unconvincing and tedious.

Audience Reviews for Night Must Fall

A nice older film noir brought to an exciting finish involving a hat box. Perhaps not thrilling at face value, the entertainment worthiness is high.

good psychological thriller with strong performances by the three leads. i've never been a fan of robert montgomery but he's remarkably effective here. it's obviously based on a play and goes on a little long but it's suspenseful and well worth watching.
