From The Filmmakers Behind The Lost Skeleton Of Cadavra Comes An Homage To The Old Dark House Genre Like No Other!


A strange and mysterious group of strange, mysterious people gathers in the old dark house of the Cavinder Estate for the reading of the will of the late Sinas Cavinder. Strangest and most mysterious of this group is the unseen psychopathic killer who is killing the attendees one by one.

Mystery, suspense, screams and laughs: Dark And Stormy Night delivers it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Just Want My Thoity-Five Cents! August 30, 2010
Format:DVD
Okay... "Dark and Stormy Night" is my new favorite movie. It's written and directed by Larry Blamire ("Lost Skeleton of Cadavra", "Trail of the Screaming Forehead") and it's a satire of Old Dark House horror movies. This movie is ten times funnier than "Murder By Death". I loved the movie version of "Clue" (sue me). This is better. I can't even begin to count the strange quotes you're going to be getting from me. The dialogue is rapid-fire and brilliantly off-the-wall. There is a love of and dexterity with language and a dearth of fart jokes.

It has the goddess Jennifer Blaire (Animala in "Lost Skeleton") as wise-cracking reporter Billy Tuesday. As far as I'm concerned, she's right up there with the goddess Jane Lynch.

This also has the goddess Fay Masterson (Betty in "Lost Skeleton") as a British ingénue so helpless she can't sit in a chair on her own and the amazing goddess Susan McConnell (Lattis in "Lost Skeleton") as a mad Scotswoman with the greatest heavily-accented vituperation this side of John Cleese as the French guard in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

If you like the Christopher Guest style of ensemble casting, you're going to love this movie. Andrew Parks (Kro-Bar in "Lost Skeleton") is the standard issue tuxedoed British fop. His mom, Betty Garrett (from "Laverne & Shirley") pops in and out of the story with her gorilla (Bob Burns. If you've ever seen a gorilla in a 1960s sitcom, it was Bob Burns.) Jim Beaver (Ellsworth on "Deadwood") is great as the deceased millionaire's safari guide ("Some of the toughest four days I've ever spent.") Actually, there isn't anybody in this movie who couldn't be singled out - which of course is what you're shooting for with an ensemble.

I completely love Larry Blamire.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really fun film August 22, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Being a huge fan of movies such as, "The Old Dark House" from 1932, with Charles Laughton and Boris Karloff, and "One Body Too Many" from 1944 with Bela Lugosi, I was anxious to see how the Director would pay homage to those films and others in it's genre. I found the movie entertaining, with lots of quick witted dialogue, great atmosphere and a respectful spoof of the great classic murder mysteries from the 30's, 40's and 50's. If you are a fan of more recent murder mystery movies with a comedic dark side, such as "Clue", "Murder by Death" or "The Cheap Detective", then you will enjoy this film. The DVD offers the film in both black and white and in color, however, in my opinion, much of the allure and chemistry of the film is lost in the color version. A good film overall and one that I would recommend for anyone looking for a fun little night of murder in an old dark house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Satire!!! August 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a pleasure this film is! We laughed from the opening scene all the way through the last moments. Larry Blamire's gift for ridiculous dialogue and spot on satire shines through in this wonderful send up of "people stuck in the house with a murderer(s) on the loose" genre. The acting is very strong and the comedic moments (which are numerous) are played "straight" - which is the only way to do it! My hat's off to Blamire & Crew for bringing yet another fine comedy together. I can't wait for the next movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Surprise October 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Honestly, this movie was a complete surprise. I thought it might be worth a look based upon the reviews I read. I am glad I ordered it. I know this is one of those movies I'll watch again. The tone is perfect for this style of movie. It has perfect pitch for what it is trying to accomplish. The lines are funny, the acting is good and the plot is entertaining. The poor cabbie will wind up being one of your favorites. He just wants his thirty five cents. Poor guy. He gets trapped into a bad situation where he winds up in a house with a killer. This is a perfect spoof and hits the tone of the genre right on. I'm surprised more people don't know about this movie and I think it would be worthy of a show on something like public television to reach a wider audience. As one reviewer mentioned, you will come away with lines you won't forget.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun spoof of 30's/40's type murder mystery films August 30, 2010
Format:DVD
Dark & Stormy Night is a spoof of those great murder mystery type movies from the 30's & 40's in which a group of characters gather at a creepy old house/mansion of some sort, in this case to hear a will reading of a recently deceased individual. Unbeknownst to them at first is that there is a murderer in their midst and one by one people start getting picked off while the rest try to figure out who the killer is.

Writer/director/actor/producer Larry Blamire really nails the look of these type of classic old movies. Even though this movie was filmed on sound stages, the feel of the house that this takes place in is great and very authentic to that era. Big, expansive with all kinds of rooms, nooks & crannies and secret compartments for the characters to discover.

The cast is thoroughly excellent and as with Larry Blamire's 2 Lost Skeleton films are obviously having a blast. There is also some appropriately cheesy model work near the beginning involving a car going over an old decrepit wooden bridge. The musical score is also surprisingly very authentic to this type of movie.

If there is one slight criticism that I have with the film, it's that the fact that movie starts to drag in a few places in terms of the pacing. The movie is 90 minutes along and maybe could have been slightly more effective with a little more judicious editing to maybe around 75 minutes.

But that is a slight complaint. The movie is funny, immensely quotable and very well done in all respects. It might not have the immediate wide appeal that the Lost Skeleton films have, but it manages to execute its humor in a more sly manner that makes it a very satisfying viewing experience. And don't forget the willsnacks when you watch this with friends!
