A Case of the Runes

The professor might seem a bit manic
He's a mess, eyes a gleam, in a panic
He's distressed he'll be burned,  
And the lesson he's learned
Is: don't mess with a demon satanic.

Niall MacGinnis is Dr. Julian Karswell, a sophisticated villain in the Hitchcockian mold, in Night of the Demon (Jacques Tourneur; 1957). Title by head case David Cairns. Happy Halloween! Stay tuned for more horror in November.
