Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 30

"Dead of Night" is a 1945 horror movie from Britain about a group of people who gather at a country house and tell stories of weird events in their lives. There's a wrapping story about the guy who gathers all the people together and why, but the real point of the movie is to cram four horror stories into one. The best of the bunch stars Michael Redgrave as a ventriloquist and his demonic dummy. I could be wrong, but I think it was one of the first films to feature the whole possessed dummy thing, and the movie "Magic" owes a hell of lot to it...You can watch the whole movie at 5:00pm on TCM, or you can watch the Dummy bit below!
