The arcade and pier footage was filmed on a part of the Santa Monica Pier which was later destroyed during a storm. A lot of alternate footage of this location appears in the Director's Cut of the movie. See more »

Billed as the "Director's Cut," the alternative version of "One Dark Night" available on the Shriek Show DVD is the filmmaker's original cut, which doesn't include completed effects and music.

Goody good Meg Tilly has to spend the night in a mausoleum as part of an initiation for a club. However, a recently deceased man with strong psychic abilites was just buried the same day and needs the life force of a young woman in order to continue on with his carnage. Creepy, spooky thriller with effective photography and lighting features strong special effects and is well plotted. Meg Tilly makes an appealing heroine. This thriller is a step above the rest, if a bit cliched at times.
Rated R; Extreme Violence.
