Storyline

Somewhere in Wichita, Kansas, David is a potential college football star who's just won a four year scholarship to a (no doubt, nice posh) college somewhere in Oaklahoma. His mates decide to throw him a serious farewell party whilst his folks are out that night. Unfortunatley three uninvited guests secretly gatecrash these nightly celebrations, two are convicts who've fled from lockup, now hiding out somewhere in the homes cellar, while our third interloper is a mental patient escapee, with a connection to the party guests and notably David himself. Before long homicidal rage resurfaces in one of these trio leading to a carnage filled rampage. Written by suspicous

Likeable slasher
15 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

NIGHT SCREAMS is underrated in the slasher genre. The premise works: Three escaped convicts head to a mansion where a teen party is taking place. These teens start to disappear one by one (ok they are brutally murdered). Later it's revealed that the escaped convicts had little responsability with the murders. Shocking!

The plot is a combination of the SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE and the 1982's classic ALONE IN THE DARK. NIGHT SCREAMS deserves a chance, watch it with low expectations and you'll have a good time!

3/10 -Terrible but tries to stand out of the garbage

"Welcome to Fright Night!...for real"
