Product Description

Amazon.ca

Is there a cheesier, funnier (without meaning to be) actress than Linda Blair? A victim of early Hollywood success with The Exorcist, she hit puberty, tried being a teen queen and a scream queen, and then hung around on the basis of the success of her first major role, exploring the limits of her talent in a series of sub-B movies. This 1981 film, about bad shenanigans during Pledge Week at college, wasn't exactly one of the high points. This surprisingly tedious venture features a group of fraternity and sorority pledges forced to spend the night in an abandoned--and, of course, haunted--mansion that once housed a killer. And would you be surprised to find out that it still does? The cast includes Vincent Van Patten and Peter Barton, as though that's an attraction. No scares, no skin--what's the point? --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Hell Night is one of the creepiest slasher movies to come from the 80's. It makes great use of its setting-a creepy old mansion on a hill. The story, for the record, revolves around a College fraternity pledge night in which a small group of pledges (including Linda Blair) are forced to spend the night in the creepy old mansion called Garth Manor. Garth Manor is a place with a history, as your typical horror movie plot line would have it, exactly twelve years ago to the night, the Manor's previous resident murdered his whole family. As the pledges' night rages on with booze and sex, one by one they are stalked and murdered by a mysterious figure. The murderer this time out is actually rather surprising and refreshing, Hell Night is a definate cut above the majority of 80's killer flicks. There are some teriffic moments and some genuine suspense. Imagine a spooky house story crossed with a slasher on the loose and you have Hell Night, guaranteed to give you a shock or two.

I first saw the Trilogy of Terror when I was 3 years old. Why my parents let me watch it I have no idea. While the first two stories are decent psychological thrillers, it was the third story, "Prey" that truly disturbed me. I am now 22 and I have been plagued with nightmares my entire life centering around the Zuni hunting fetish that hunts Karen Black in this movie. For some reason this just really got to me. I still find this chapter of the movie the scariest thing I have ever seen in any film. The raw viciousness of the doll, the evil sounds it makes, and the final scene, all are truly horrifying. I nicknamed the doll "Cut-Out" as a kid since it cuts it way out of a suitcase in one part. I was curious if anyone else found this movie as frightening as I did. It's something I may never stop having nightmares about. I'd recommend it to anyone, just don't let your 3 year olds watch it.

So many horror movies came out in the early 1980's that movie makers sometimes had a hard time finding locations and situations that hadn't been used yet. Sorority and Fraternity initiations were a great way of sticking teens into situations no sane person would go into voluntarily.
Hell Night sticks four unfortunate twentyish kids into Garth Mansion, the site of a grisly family slaughter years before. The sadistic pledge masters lock the huehuehuege iron gates behind them and inform them they have to stay the night. The pledge masters then begin setting off special effects they set up earlier to try and scare the four hapless pledges. As you might guess, there are real horrors inside which start thinning out the cast.
Linda Blair is the obvious star of the show. I am a fan of Linda's but for some reason I just get the feeling while watching this that she is disinterested. In fact early on she seems to be improvising her lines. The GREAT commentary track explains some of this. Apparently everyone on the set had a great time and was loaded half the time. The director (Tom DeSimone)and producer (Irwin Yablans who brought us Halloween) are on the commentary as well. It's obvious everyone got along well and had fun making the film.
Having seen the film before getting the DVD, I really liked the feel of it, although I wasn't sure why. The commentary hit on something I hadn't considered. The pledges are all in costumes since the Hell Night festivities were part of a costume party. The director mentions that this was done so they could logically dress the characters in gothic, period costumes without having to make an actual period film.

Entertaining little movie by the executive producer of Halloween you can see the style evident in this. The story four college students are rushing Alpha Sigma Rho Frat/sorority on hell night. They have to spend the night in Garth Manor mansion that has been shut down for 12 years because story has it Raymond Garth slaughtered his family here 12 years ago. Except little deformed Andrew Garth who slipped through the cracks and apparently doesn't like any visitors. In true 80's slasher fashion the head fraternity brothers have to try to scare them to death one by one there killed off. The acting isn't the greatest except Linda Blair but it's 80's horror. The film is quite suspensful the way the cinematography and music is handled very well. More of a messing with the mind jump out of your seat horror film than typical blood/gore slash films in that decade. One of my favorite 80's horror films I own the DVD & special features are good. You can't be a fan of 80's horror films without liking this movie. Recommend to fans of
Terror Train
Funhouse
Halloween
The Burning

This is a surprisingly effective little semi-chestnut from the "glory days," if that's the term, of slasher flicks. Just as "Nightmare on Elm Street" raised itself, somewhat, above the genre with a nifty touch of psychology, "Hell Night" raises itself through clever scares and good production values (although its essential cheapness is evident whenever a candle flame or other light source is reflected in the camera lens rather than being filtered out), and through mostly sympathetic and likable characters. It is also intriguing to see that Frank Darabont, who would later go on to acclaim for his scripts, does technical work on this movie.
The plot is simple: four college fraternity/sorority pledges must spend one night in a decrepit mansion, on the 12th anniversary of the last tenant's massacre of his entire family, save for his youngest child. Of course, it is still believed that said child still lives in the house, which comes equipped with trap doors, tunnels, and secret rooms, a belief that, as the pledges find out to their dismay, is correct.
Despite her top billing, Linda Blair really isn't the star; she shares the screen equally with the rest of the major cast. She plays an appealingly sweet-but-smart heroine, and though she's hardly a beauty (and would be considered obese by today's standards), she looks downright luscious in her cleavage-baring Bo Peep getup, with her normally frizzy hair in a bun. Blair and Peter Barton interact so well together that you scarcely notice that Barton could give Rob Lowe a run for his money in the pretty-boy department, nor his badly-dated early 80s haircut. The scenes where they talk to each other about their respective backgrounds are actually interesting, and you want them to end up together.
