Editorial Reviews

Linda Blair strs in the hit horror shocker from the Executive Producer of HALLOWEEN. One dark night 12 years ago, madman Raymong Garth butchered his wife and children in their creepy mansion before killing himself. Legend has it that one child survived the slaughter and remains hidden in the house as a deformed monster. Tonight, a group of fraternity and sorority pledges must spend the night in Garth Manor on the anniversary of the killings. But even if these college kids can handle one wild evening of sex, partying, and pranks, will the survive the ultimate horrors of HELL NIGHT? Vincent Van Patten (ROCK 'N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL) and Peter Barton (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS) co-star in this slasher hit produced by Irwin Yablans (HALLOWEEN) and Bruce Cohn Curis (BORN INNOCENT) and directed by Tom DeSimone (REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS), and filled with all the grisly murders and startling shocks that made HELL NIGHT an '80s body count classic.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This is one of the best horror flicks of the 80's!

Yet another slasher film, but a good one.

Well, they're ALL good. But this is even better than most, mainly because Linda Blair and Peter Barton lend depth and sympathy to their characters despite some hokey dialogue.

It's initiation time on fraternity/sorority row. Four pledges must prove themselves worthy by spending the night at Garth Mansion, a huge abandoned estate. Years ago, Daddy Garth killed his wife and three mutant kids. The fourth mutant kid was never found. Legend has it he still stalks the mansion ...

Here's something odd. There are only four pledges: two guys (Barton and Van Patten) and two gals (Blair and Goodwin). Since when do fraternities and sororities hold joint initiations? And they are bid farewell on their initiation by a HUGE party. This implies a great many brothers and sisters. Yet at the rate of two pledges per year, the fraternity and sorority would each be down to eight members each within four years.

I guess director de Simone simply wanted lots of people at the party, but only two couples at Garth Mansion. I guess it's spookier (and cheaper) with just four pledges, never mind making sense.

Okay, I don't mind.

What's important is that the four kids are locked behind the tall iron gates of Garth Mansion, three upperclassman sneak in to scare them ... and the body count mounts!

The script and lead performances are a bit better than standard slasher fare. Barton portrays a sensitive rich boy. Blair is the poor girl with a heart of gold. She's also virginal, at first keeping Barton to his own bed, later cuddling and sleeping with him ... but just sleeping. Both keep their clothes on. Meanwhile, Van Patten and Goodwin fornicate like rabbits in the next room.

This movie should be up there with the likes of "Halloween" as a classic of the genre. Unlike most of the slasher flicks of the eighties, "Hell Night" is not full of gruesome special effects and blatant nudity. Instead the movie relies on suspense, and it does this very well.
Let's face it, the story is not the most original, 4 sorority pledges have to spend 1 night in "Garth Manor" to gain entry to their chosen fraternities. Some of their peers set out to make it a night full of frights, but as is turns out, they needn't have bothered....Garth Manor is truly haunted. Heard it all before ? So have I, but I don't think I have ever seen the subject matter handled so well.
As awful as the deaths are, there is very little blood involved, and I don't think I saw one fake intestine ! The chills however, are plentiful. The setting, a dark, gothic mansion, candlelit and isolated is perfect. The mood is goosebump enticing. The music is eerie and the performances are all good. Of course, Linda Blair shines, as always. Ms Blair plays the nice quiet girl wondering what the hell she is doing in this situation, who turns out to be the only one with the guts to grapple with the monster 1 on 1.
If only more horror movies had attempted to do what Hell Night did. Pick your actors for acting ability rather than willingness to show flesh, and spend some budget on script development and filming techniques rather than bucketloads of blood and gore.
I have been a fan of this film for years and when I bought the DVD was amazed at the difference in picture quality. I actually saw things that I had never noticed on my VHS copy. The DVD also includes a theatrical trailer and amusing and informative commentary with movies makers and Linda Blair also.

In the huge glut of "slasher" films produced in the early 1980's, "Hell Night", starring Linda Blair, Peter Barton and Vincent Van Patten, has always been a favourite on mine on a number levels. A viewing last night confirmed for me that while the characters are indeed fairly shallow and the dialogue would certainly never be mistaken for anything penned by Oscar Wilde, "Hell Night", is definately one of the most atmospheric and beautifully photographed efforts to come out of this particular horror sub-genre. The superb lighting employed here showcasing the creepy mansion and its overgrown grounds, and especially the eerie cobweb laden underground tunnels adds tremendously to the rich look and feel of the film. I found it very entertaining with a suitably "Gothic" looking haunted mansion, appealing characters, a rather disturbing "killer", and best of all a very spectacular climax involving Linda Blair fighting off her attacker in an out of control car that is real edge of the seat material. A very noticable lack of blood and gore that literally "drenched", this "slasher" genre right out of existence later in the 1980's decade also makes this film more appealing than many of the "Friday 13th" clones then being produced.

"Hell Night" is an irresistible guilty pleasure from the early 80s slasher cycle, and one of the handful that actually still holds up (for instance, "Friday the 13th," "Prom Night" and "Terror Train" now seem about as suspenseful as "My Fair Lady").

Though the story is lame--pledges spending the night in a haunted mansion--the execution (sorry) is smart: "blood-dripped" font in the opening credits, trap doors, secret passageways, a hedge maze, catacombs under the house, a convincing monster, appealing actors, a really creepy "legend" that sets the story in motion, and even a little surprise twist regarding the antagonist. I love that our heroine Linda Blair is in Victorian garb (complete with heaving bosom), being chased around the old Victorian mansion. Nice touch. Ditto the scene of the fraternity arriving with torches, a la the "Frankenstein" villagers (in fact, the monster even looks like a leaner version of DeNiro's take on Shelly's creature).

I was struck, on my first viewing in almost 20 years, by how instense this movie gets. The last 20 minutes are quite nerve-wracking. I remembered the "rising carpet" scene vividly from the original release, and it still gives me chills (you should definitely let smart aleck little kids watch this--it will scare the hell out of them).

I'm also struck by how many shockingly bad decisions people in this movie make--like going BACK in the house 2 and 3 times, fully aware of what is waiting inside. It gets a little ridiculous after a while, though if you are watching with a group it makes for some lively discourse (Of course if they just hid outside in a bush until dawn, like you or I would do, there would be no movie).

There is a fun, light-hearted commentary included on the DVD. Always a pleasure to listen to funny anecdotes and about what a gentleman the guy playing the monster was, while watching people get their heads cut off.

You need this DVD.
