Trivia

The play that Hayward imagines he is performing onstage is William Shakespeare's Othello; Act 5, Scene 2. See more »

Goofs

The very first kill scene shows a person's body bring torn in half, but the way it was executed would nearly impossible. 1) The torso is the thickest part of the body; the shoulder and hip joints would give way first. 2) The white cotton ropes used to anchor the victim to the tree were far too flimsy; they would stretch and snap first.

the Skipper should have gotten more screen time
14 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Every once in a while, someone decides that there needs to be another movie about horny teens going somewhere to get butchered. Still, "Terror Night" (also called "Bloody Movie") does put an interesting spin on that motif. In this case, the house of 1920s movie star Lance Hayward is getting repossessed by the city; Hayward disappeared from the public eye many years earlier. Anyway, some typical '80s teens opt to go there for the night, and...well, you can probably guess what happens to them, especially since two of them are fiddling around in the bathtub when they first appear in the movie.

What makes this slasher movie a little different is the fact that a number of old B-actors appear in it. John Ireland plays Lance Hayward, but Aldo Ray plays a homeless man and Alan Hale plays a security guard. Personally, I wish that Alan Hale could have gotten more screen time, so that he could have maybe assumed his Skipper persona. Maybe they could have brought in the other Castaways to irk him. Oh well.

Also, when the murders happen, they use scenes from Lance Hayward's movies to show the murders. Considering that horror veteran Andre De Toth (House of Wax) was involved in this movie, it makes sense that it would be a little different.
