Curtis Harrington’s Night Tide starring Dennis Hopper had its world
premiere at the Venice Film Festival in August of 1961, though it wouldn’t see a US release until two years later. In honor of its
55th anniversary, I revisited the independent horror-thriller.
a series of experimental short films, writer-director Curtis Harrington set out to make his feature debut with Night Tide. Under the guidance
of Roger Corman, Harrington made the film independently in 1960. He
based the script on a short story he wrote, raising a budget of
approximately $50,000 himself in order to put it on film.
