A Horror/Comedy that's neither funny nor scary
10 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One trend in 1980s Horror movies that was good and bad was when humor and terror were mixed. When the two are blended well, like in 'The Return of the Living Dead,' it's magic. However, if the two are unbalanced the results can be a disaster. Lots of filmmakers jumped on this bandwagon, but not everyone had what it took to make it work. Some at least managed to be so bad they're good, but others are just forgettable. 'Night Visitor,' is not an unwatchable movie, but there's nothing here to write home about either.

Pros: Above average performances. Decent score. Fast pace. Has some camp value.

Cons: Nothing here we haven't seen before. In fact, it borrows quite liberally from 'Fright Night.' Bland direction. Fails at scares and humor. Forgettable. Hasn't aged well at all. Cheap production values.

Final thoughts: Both the VHS and DVD covers fail to mention this is a Horror/Comedy. In fact, both of them make it look like it's straight Horror. Doesn't matter really since it's really nothing special anyway. Why MGM bothered to put it out on DVD I'll never know. It's not dull and can be good for a few laughs, but is ultimately pretty lame and doesn't have an identity of it's own.

My rating: 2/5
