366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 83

The Date: December 22

The Movie: Dead of Night (1945)

What Is It?: The first great horror portmanteau set the standards to which all subsequent horror portmanteau’s adhered, including its uneven nature. But episodes about a haunted X-mas party and a rather independent ventriloquist’s dummy deliver the goods, and the wrap-around story is the greatest in the history of horror portmanteaus.

Why Today?: Today is the longest night of year…plus the Christmas episode fits this week's holiday theme.
