Hell Night Reviews

March 6, 2018
This particular slasher set itself apart from the era's deluge of them by being somewhat of a genre-mashup with an old school haunted house movie ... you practically expect Vincent Price to step out and reveal himself from behind a curtain.

Hell Night may have an intriguing set-up, but ultimately it suffers from bland execution and a rather uneventful narrative, which results in just another forgettable slasher from the 80s.

In that rare company of slasher films that aren't just good by the standards of their subgenre, but manage to round the corner to being legitimately good works of horror cinema.

Hell Night brought out the gimp at least a decade before Pulp Fiction was even a twinkle in Quentin Tarantino's eye.

You know a movie is in trouble when what is happening on the screen inspires daydreams. I had lasted through the first reel, and nothing had happened. Now I was somewhere in the middle of the third reel, and still nothing had happened.

Quaintly entertaining combination of slasher stuff and haunted mansion material.

A worthwhile entry into the 80's mad-slasher wave.
