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
Made during the height of the slasher craze, Hell Night is a worthy attempt that ultimately falls short. The main issue is pacing. The films run time is 101 minutes, but 85 minutes would have been more than enough time
This movie is a nice little surprise, thank you Shudder! There’s nothing new here, but there’s a nice little bit of humor throughout, and the result is pretty satisfying!
20mins too long
A really fun, atmospheric slasher. A very pleasant surprise.
