A sailor (Dennis Hopper’s first starring role!) falls in love with a girl in a beatnik jazz club, and is drawn into a strange world in which she may be a mermaid. Turning Venice Beach locations into indelible film noir images, Night Tide is part gothic horror, part mood piece, all fever dream.
A baby-faced Dennis Hopper makes his lead-role debut in this atmospheric “creature feature” from underground filmmaker Curtis Harrington. Sirens, the sea, and the supernatural swirl in a beatnik B-movie, set in the bohemian environs of 1960s Venice Beach. A cult classic, now restored in HD!
