Flick Review < Night Tide | Curtis Harrington (1961)

Mora: Because I feel the seawater in my veins. Because I listen to the roar of the sea and it speaks to me like a 
mother's voice. The tide pulls at my heart. And the face of the moon fills my soul with a strange longing.
Mora: Yes, I love the sea most of all. But I'm afraid of it, too. 
Johnny Drake: I guess we're all a little afraid of what we love.

Writer/director Curtis Harrington had a lifelong obsession with the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, which surfaced in 
many of his films. The story was inspired by, and the title "Night Tide" was derived from, Poe's poem "Annabel Lee."
