Movie Info

In this suspense thriller, a group of students at an all-girls Catholic school come up with a new idea to raise funds for school projects -- they'll have a "Stay Awake," in which supporters can pledge to pay a certain amount of money for each hour that the girls can go without sleep. The students and a supervising teacher lock themselves in the school for a long night without shut-eye, but they soon discover that they're not alone. John Brown, a psychotic rapist and murderer nicknamed "The Angel of Darkness," was recently executed for his crimes, but has risen from the grave as a strange humanoid beast, and he makes his way into the school, preying on the innocent girls within. Who will survive, and how can they defeat a force of wickedness incarnate? The cast includes Tanya Gordon, Shirley Jane Harris, Jayne Hutton, and Heath Porter. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Stay Awake

  • Feb 27, 2009
    "It's twenty years later and the evil half-man, half-beast spirit of big John Brown sent to the gas chamber for rape and murder, has begun to terrorize an all-girls school to avenge his own death." C'mon, even for a crappy horror flick of the 80s, this sounded like great fun! Fulci and Argento were going nuts and the "witch horror" genre was actually getting pretty good. But my God, did my eyes bleed watching this!!! South Africa screwed it up! 15/100
