Possessed by the Night (1994 Video)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
This movie contains most elements I like in B-grade erotic movies. It has mystical things, a man with high sexual desire, and girls with nice-sized boobs.
The plot circles around an ancient mystical antique which can turn a good man into a bad one. The plot is weak and so is the acting but who cares. All I want is to see Shannon in action and I get just that. Although she doesn't undress as much as she should but in one scene she really pleases me as her fan. She works out in a gym with her sweaty breasts dancing around make me thank God for creating women. After that, we'll see her in an awesome high speed bed action.
I definitely recommend this movie for Tweed's fans. For you who are not, you better watch something else.
Well this is not the best erotic B-movie but it's a damn entertaining erotic flick to have. Buy, rent, or watch it on cable, it's worth the watch.
Directed by Fred Olen Ray, who also has a small role in the film as a waiter, I thought Possessed by the Night was total & utter crap of the highest order. The script by Mark Thomas McGee is all over the place, I tried my best with the plot synopsis but Possessed by the Night is an absolute mess of a 'film' & I use the term film loosely. The narrative is non-existent, this film has no story quite literally. Well none that makes any sense anyway. There are various loose plot threads like the one-eyed thing in the jar, the debt collector & his problems, the marriage problems between Howard & Peggy & the various impromptu & out-of-place sex scenes & they all sort of come together at the end but it'a all rather tenuous & flimsy. Most of Possessed by the Night is just padding & to make it worse it's padding of the most boring & uninspired kind that you can imagine. As a whole there is no entertainment value in Possessed by the Night whatsoever & who exactly is it meant to appeal to anyway? Is it a horror? I wouldn't have said so. A thriller? Not a chance. Maybe it's an erotic film? Well, in my opinion it's as erotic as a slap around the face with a wet fish. Perhaps it's a mixture of all three? Nope, it has no enjoyable aspect to it's overlong 90 odd minutes.
Director Ray does his usual point & shoot job, the film has no style or visual flair. This is bland, flat & forgettable stuff all the way. There's virtually no gore apart from a few gunshot wounds at the very end, the one-eyed thing looks rubbery (& it just sits in a jar throughout the entire film & does NOTHING else) & the sex scenes are very, very, very, very, very, very unerotic. The only nudity is of the topless variety, there is no genital nudity & the sex scenes are really tame as well. I just don't see who Possessed by the Night is supposed to please.
Technically Possessed by the Night is cheap, nasty & throughly routine. There is not one memorable aspect to it. The acting sucks, there's nothing else I can say & what on Earth is Henry Silva doing in this?
Possessed by the Night is total crap, it's as simple & straight forward as that. Definitely one to avoid.
Then I got myself this one, thinking I could not really be disappointed, what with the Hell film and all, and I have to say: this movie offers *all* (!) the entertainment, plot logics, good dialogue, acting skills and high-end production value of a cheap porno, but without the explicit sex scenes. And Sandahl looks better partially dressed (I'm gonna try and remember her in her skimpy barbarian outfit, where you couldn't see the handiwork done on her chest).
There is absolutely not the slightest point in *ever* watching this. You will not get back the precious time you lose trying to not be put off by this. Just hands off. This film should never have been made.
