Not clever or funny or frightening enough
19 November 2016 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

To give credit to it, Night of the Slasher does at least try to play with post-modern horror ideas. The plot sees a girl strip to her pants, dance to music, drink, get frisky with a guy, and all the things that usually spell death in a horror movie. However in this case it is a deliberate ploy to summon a serial killer so she can get revenge for a previous attack.

The plot is ripe with 80's clichés – the indestructible masked killer, the music, the girl with her wild blonde hair, and of course the list itself. There is a certain amount of enjoyment to be had from this but unfortunately this film is a case of potential more than delivery. It plays with genre clichés but not in a really smart way. It is sort of creepy in the odd moment, but it isn't really in a lingering or memorable way. The humor is there in a knowing sense, but it doesn't really draw you in and make you go with it. The one- shot is a nice idea, but it is too obviously masked and in the end it didn't feel like it was trying to appear as a one-shot film.

It is worth a look but mostly it is a film that misses the mark fairly consistently, which is a shame because it is close enough that it could have been better.
