Did You Know?


Re-released in Great Britain under the title of "E.T.N.: The Extraterrestrial Nasty" during the Video Nasty era. The VHS cover itself was actually a doctored E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) poster made to look like a gory rip-off. See more »


Chris Jordan: Look, I'm telling you this for your own good.
Rex Bowers: Well, I'm fed up taking orders, lover boy. You go take your advice and peddle it somewhere else.
Chris Jordan: Now listen Rex...
Rex Bowers: No, you listen! Nobody invited you and little Miss Sunday School out here. This is our private blast and if you don't dig it, split!

A Valiant hearse is the first clue there's something wrong.
6 May 2007 | by (Central Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

When the budget doesn't allow for a Cadillac or Packard or Lincoln or Imperial hearse we are talking cheep cheep. That's bird language for cheap cheap.

What is in the hair of the forty year old teen boy? The guy who looks like a cement head who tries a couple of times to run over John Agar and provides the only scare in the movie by how close he comes. His hair looks like a shoe. A patent leather shoe. He is a shoe head.

The nurse woman needs immediate emergency hair washing. She has lacquer in her blond locks that would ignite if the production company had been able to afford lights.

The monster? The music was scarier. I would try to run from the music. The monster probably had better hair than the rest of the cast. Put some lipstick on that monster and you've got Divine's older sister.

The camera work and editing and plot provided a buffer to prepare the audience for the bad music throughout.

Hello Mr. Agar? We're thinking of doing a sequel to Night Fright and... Mr. Agar? Agar? Tom Willett
