Campy low budget horror fun!
16 January 2008 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of independent movies. While this one plays like an imitation of all the "nerd gets revenge" horror movies, it still manages some very original kill scenes, decent acting, and a fun story line.

What sets Evil Night apart from the rest is the nerd's science genius which he uses to create a potion that gives him telekinesis which he uses to get revenge on those who wronged him.

This appears to be Todd Cook's first movie. You can tell by quality alone because it is not as clean as his later efforts. Some of the scenes are very dark and the film is quite grainy as a result. I agree that it has good gore effects (also done by Cook). The new DVD release seems to have generated a newfound success and even found distribution by a company called Screamtime Films (which hosts other movies directed by Todd Cook).

Evil Night was obviously made as a fun, campy style movie with black humor and it succeeds because on the surface it isn't made to be taken seriously, like any horror movie.

With that in mind, this film is a fun way to kill 90 minutes and it's a definite tribute to the glorious 80's slasher boom!
