In this slasher favorite, THE EXORCIST's Linda Blair stars as one of four pledges required to spend the evening of their initiation inside the spooky Garth Manor– the site of a gruesome multiple murder years before. After the group bed down for the night, mischievous upperclassmen descend into the house, intending to scare them out of their wits...but something even more repulsive than a pack of drunken frat-boys beats them to it.
Four college pledges spend the night in a deserted old mansion, where they are stalked by the monstrous survivor of a family massacre years earlier.
Cast: Linda Blair, Vincent Van Patten, Peter Barton, Suki Goodwin, Jimmy Sturtevant
Not bad, but it felt like an eternity.
not the best, but certainly not the worst. some parts dragged seemed like just killing time but good ending made up for it
Reading the reviews on here, I have to ask, what are you people on?? Sure, this isn't Nightmare on Elm Street or anything, but it's still a decent 80's horror film. The cast is likeable, and you care what happens to them. There's a little twist near the end that was a nice surprise. Not super scary or anything, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Definitely worth a watch, and worth buying, in my opinion.
One of the worst I've seen on Shudder yet. A passionless, uninspired, yawn inducing hour and fourty minutes of dimensionless characters who fill the time with exposition dumps or ponderings that extend the film's bloated run time. There might be one ketchup bottle full of blood and the makeup department had an easy job. In the end I was begging for the mercy of "roll credits". Rated as a 4 Star flick here on Shudder its obvious it must hace spooked the boomer community, I cant see any modern day horror fan finding any value in this turkey.
Slowly paced, kills that aren't very gruesome, thrilling or creative, a predictable ending - Hell Night is just a very dry horror movie. All enjoyment I garnered from the flick came from the character Seth, but that bubbly blond couldn't save it overall.
