SUSPENSE—Episode 29: Casting the Runes

By John C. Alsedek:

One of my all-time favorite horror films is 1957’s Night of the Demon (known in the U.S. as Curse of the Demon), and this episode draws from the same classic short story by M. R. James. But while the script follows the source material pretty closely, a lot of it is brand-new—especially the ending. This episode marked the first SUSPENSE appearance of David Blue (from Stargate Universe).

Episode 29: "Casting the Runes"

Stars: David Blue, Hayden Black, Adrienne Wilkinson, Sean Hackman, and Dan Flood

While looking into the death of a colleague, a researcher finds himself cursed by the head of a demonic cult.

Adapted for SUSPENSE by John C. Alsedek & Dana Perry-Hayes from the short story by

M. R. James.
