Sometimes, BHF references crop up in the strangest places...

Now, we all know of my deep and abiding love for Dead Of Night, the 1940s black and white shocker about a bunch of people trying to outscare each other with their tales of the supernatural. Sometimes I think I'm banging a lone drum, then you read a review of new film Inception which mentions the film... in the Bangkok Post, of all things.
Truly this is a very small world these days.
The Post is talking about dreams in films and says this:
Going back in time, the dream premise of the 1945 British horror anthology film Dead of Night feels as untenable as that of Inception until the end when its frame story explodes into a bona fide Expressionist nightmare.
Too true, too true...
