Not bad in terms of the usual chase, stab, & repeat
on February 15, 2011
Just when I was starting to enjoy the annual offerings from Ghost House Underground, as opposed to those offered by say the After Dark Horrorfest, it looks like the films released under said banner are dwindling. This year's edition is only offering two films so far (Stag Night along with Psych 9) which is disappointing, but thankfully, Stag Night isn't half bad. A bachelor party goes from good night to nightmare when the groom to be (Kip Pardue), his troublemaker brother (Breckin Meyer), a stripper (Vinessa Shaw), and some others all run afoul of a crew of underground cannibals when they accidentally get off mid-stop on the subway. What follows is the usual brand of chasing around with blood flowing aplenty, and for what it is, Stag Night surprisingly works. The acting isn't bad, the bloody bits are satisfying, and there's even a bit of genuine surprises as well. Still, it isn't perfect, but Stag Night offers no more and no less than what it is, which is a not half bad horror/slasher flick that delivers most of what horror fans look for in the first place.
