Hell Night Reviews

  • Jan 11, 2020

    A girl from a working-class background wants to escape to the affluent world of sorority sisters and beau hunk frat boys. Crossing those lines doesn't come cheap however, first she must get through a night of ‘torture' in the form of dumb but technologically sophisticated hijinks. Then reality sets in. Or maybe un-reality. She doesn't belong here. No one belongs here. This affluence was financed with blood, and the repayment's due. The house she'd been willing to do anything to get into becomes a trap, and now she'll fight her way out, or die trying. Somehow Linda Blair won a Razzie for this, proving once again that those Razzie people should stick to their day jobs. She's great, the rest of the cast is good, in this better-than-average slasher sub-classic.

    The most unforgivable thing about Hell Night is that it is utterly boring. This was recommended as a great Halloween night film, but honestly a few shots of the scary house aside this is a very sub par 80s slasher - and that's not a good place to be!

    While leaving many open doors, the filmmakers still picked a scary and entertaining monster manor flick

    It was the true start of slasher horror. Yes it was predictable however it was enjoyable with a few scares.

    Some good jokes, a creepy premise, and some likeable side characters with enough jump scares and suspense to please the slasher crowd. Linda's acting is subpar tbh - she's no Jamie Lee Curtis. If you love scary movies though this is worth a shot.

    Surprisingly good, though pretty tame.

    Another solid slasher that mixes in old school horror with the Gothic creepy old house. It also has some likeable, pretty human characters, which helps it stand out from the crowd.

    It’s a little slow and doesn’t quite live up to my teenage memories, but it’s still a fun lesser 80’s horror flick.

    I consider this to be a good B-movie cult classic in the horror genre. 😊
