What the hell did I just watch! There is something bewildering about this 1986 favourite. I really don’t know quite where to begin with my review of it. I guess lets take a look at the plot...
A group of teens go and stay at an old house haunted by the spirit of a killer on Halloween night, naturally. When their totally rad’ portable cassette player runs out of batteries, imagine it! They hold a séance and some of the teens become possessed and try to kill the rest. Pretty standard fare, but the performances are just so out there and bad; it was strangely quite compelling, although it really is just utter rubbish. Linnea Quigley is probably the best known of the stars, and she hams it up the most, and provides a whole lot of nudity which might be a reason why this one is quite popular. In one scene she pushes her lipstick into her breast.
I don’t especially rate it, even as a bad movie it doesn’t really do it for me, but it was okay, probably best enjoyed with a few drinks, I liked the scene where one of the girls, Angela (Amelia Kinkade) gets possessed and does a fierce dance with loads of strobe lights!
It was followed by two sequels! Amelia Kinkade is now an animal psychic, and has even had a book published. Linnea Quigley will be in the 2009 remake of Night of the Demons which also stars Shannon Elisabeth.
