A strange man named Karl Rhamarevich dies shortly after discovering a way to become even more powerful in death through telekinesis. On the night of his burial in a crypt, Julie is to spend the night there as part of an initiation rite, supervised by two other girls. The crypt becomes a scene of horror as Raymar returns to life and deploys his horrifying telekinetic powers, with coffins sliding out and splintering open to release decaying bodies on Raymar's command. The bodies soon begin to menace the three girls trapped inside. Will they survive the horrific night in the crypt? Written by
The man driving the blue car when the girls run the first stop sign is writer Michael Hawes. They didn't have a stunt driver and everyone else was afraid of having a collision, so Hawes volunteered to do the stunt in his own car. See more »

What was that pill you gave to Julie?
Demerol. She's gonna get so messed up, she won't know what's goin' on. So what's the deal?
Well, I don't like it.

So, I just don't like it!
Then, you're not coming?
I don't know!
You know, I oughta pull over right now and let you out!
Yeah, why don't you?
[Pulls over to the side of the tunnel and stops the car]
Kitty, open the door and let this turkey out!

Multiply named and strangely casted, "One Dark Night" aka "Mausoleum", is one of the better early horror video-rentals. Original and quite raw, we meet Adam West briefly in this film about telekinesis and teen-age headgames. Meg Tilly is dared into spending the night in a crypt by "The Sisters" a high-school gang of hair-hoppers in blue satin jackets. The initiation is interrupted by the recently interred body of a mass-murdering psychic wizard called "Raymar". Surprisingly awesome make-up and scare effects paints this chiller film with style and deliver a heart-pounding climax.
