I saw One Dark Night watching T.V. one night. It was about 1:00 A.M. and nothing was on so flipping through the channels I stumbled on to one of the best horror movies I've seen. I'd never heard of this film nor had I seen it anywhere. Finally, thanks to Shriek Show "One Dark Night" is coming to DVD.

When you consider the setting for the film, a mausoleum, you know it's going to be creepy. Just the thought of sleeping overnight in a mausoleum makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand straight up. One dark night is a perfect movie to watch on a late evening or on Halloween night; it's a cinematic example of what Halloween is all about. Containing lots of spooky elements that you look for in horror films:

Mausoleums, Telekinesis, graveyard scenes, and coroner scenes,including a very strange and eerie scene where 6 dead girls are found in the recently deceased man's appartment all piled together with their staring eyes wide open! The background music is quite effective too in adding to the moviegoer's experience.

"One Dark Night" is an underrated and, most likely, underviewed horror movie. Easily worth recommending for fans of the early 80's horror flicks that we've all come to know and love. Well worth and evening and soon to be added to my collection! (Thank you, Shriek Show!)

I must admit that although most people don't seem to hold this film in high regard (I don't think it's even considered a cult classic)this is absolutely the best horror movie I have ever seen! It was released to east coast theaters in the United States on March 4, 1983. I was thirteen-years-old when I saw it with my parents that weekend and this movie left quite an impression on me. It touched me in a way no other film has before and I will never forget it. Not that it frightened me, no far from it, but I became obssessed with it and still am to this day at the age of thirty-four, one year older than Tom McLaughlin was when he directed it. I believe it was filmed in the fall of 1982 and took only twenty-eight days to make. It was shot on location in LA using the Hollywood Cathederal Mausoleum for interior shots. A set was built of marble and plywood for the special effects and the filming of the corpses coming out of their tombs. It had an excellent cast: Meg Tilly fresh from her role in "Tex" and whom I developed a crush on after seeing the movie, the handsome David Mason Daniels who bears a slight resemblance to Christopher Reeve and for whom I developed a kind of hero worship at that young age (where are they now
,I wonder whatever happened to him, he was a good actor), Adam West(of the '60's batman series), Melissa Newman ( Paul Newman's daughter), Robin Evans as Carol ( a former model and later a "Rip tide" girl(1984)), Leslie Speights as Kitty ( I wonder whatever happened to her too?), Elizabeth Daily ( Valley Girl(1983)) and of course a great writer director, Tom Mclaughlin. I have nothing but praise for this film and am eagerly awaiting its release on DVD with special features.

Morbid,macabre,dark. Never did a Film have a more fitting Title. I first saw this film as a kid on television and have loved it ever since. A rather unconventional horror Film, most of the Film contains no Blood or Mayhem as the bulk of the Film prepares the Viewer for the last 15 minutes during which all Hell breaks loose. Despite the lack of Gore this Film succedes due to strange floating camera work an effectively weird soundtrack and a very Macabre Plot.The whole tone of the Film is unrelentingly Grim and Morbid, many of the key scenes take place in a Cemetary and Mausoleum and the last portion contains a wealth of Images that would give small children a thousand Nighmares. One Dark Night indeed.

Okay, So here I am, an avid horror movie fan since i was about 8 years of age. I'm 35 now and I seen this film back in September of 1982 with my 7th grade school chums. Few Girls, Few boys and we all got freaky scared from this film. Story line is typical of any other films we see today; Girl wants to be in snotty clique with popular girls in school; meanwhile, Creepy Old Man killer/kidnapper "RAYMAR" [A name you will always remember after seeing this thriller..] is being buried in the local Mausoleum. JUST AS THE SAME NIGHT the snotty girls hold there initiation for the 'nice girl Julie' to scare her to death. Howeverrrrr...the joke is on the girls! I wont give anything away but this film was both written very well and directed very well. FOR A PG rated film, THE SPECIAL EFFFECTS ARE GREAT! Today this would 'clearly' be PG-13. I had a chance to email the writers of this great film and I'm hoping its changed, but back last year he said they were not going to have any features with the girls. A commentary would of rocked with them today to watch them 'then'. It would of been cool to see where they are now because all the girls in this film were unique and had different likings about them. I especially enjoyed watching ROBIN EVANS playing the No. 1 mean girl CAROL! SHE IS GORGEOUS in this film and with its 80's look its just alll so inocent and I wish I could go back into time, to that night when we all walked to the movies when life was easy to see ONE DARK NIGHT!

I placed my order weeks ago and I'm waiting for the 17th to get my NO. 1 80's Fun Filled Horror Film. I hope you all enjoy this film as everyone else who submitted there reviews.
