House on the Edge of the Park (1980)

I found this Ruggero Deodato exploitation movie surprisingly lame.
Yes, some of the sexual scenes are pretty disturbing but it was low on gore and not frightening at all.
I hated those rich SOB´s! [Smile]

David Hess was once again fun to watch and the house looked great.
I also liked the score and i have heard that Helen likes it too [Wink]

I wonder if they will actually shoot the sequel The House on the Edge of the Park part II

I own this scandi dvd:

watched john carpenter's excellent 1987 horror movie prince of darkness starring donald pleasance,jameson parker,lisa blount and big trouble in little china's victor wong and dennis dun.

 -

also features a very creepy looking alice cooper .

really enjoyed this one,superbly directed by john carpenter and with excellent performances from a great cast, the music score http://youtu.be/fkfKUrwxPfQ also by carpenter is first rate and really adds to the overall atmosphere.

i can remember when this was first released it was generally not very well received by the critics but has over the years built up a bit of a fanbase.

myself personally i agree with quite a few of the comments i've read suggesting this is probably one of john carpenter's most underated movies.

one thing i never realised till i just read it was the opening credits go on for a whopping 9 minutes -
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093777/trivia?tab=cz .

 -

great movie!

Prince of Darkness is one of the many John Carpenter classics!
I love the atmosphere and how the 9 minute opening credits builds up the tension.

Great write-up Warrior!

I haven't watched "Prince of Darkness" in several years. I meant to watch it awhile back when it was mentioned on the Zombie Thread, but forgot.

All I can say is this. Weekend at Bernies is apparently one of the most 'harrowing horror' movies ever [Wink]

Does anyone else know Adventures in Babysitting as A Night On The Town? That is what I have always known it as here in Australia, and on a side note have always been a big fan of Daryl Coopersmith.

Here in Holland it was released on video as A Night On The Town as well. (released in october '88
to be exactly)

The dvd released here in 2003 was titled Adventures in Babysitting though.

Damn DVD releases!

Glad to see someone else remembers this movie as A Night On The Town too.

As much as I know that Adventures in Babysitting is the original title because it was made in USA it just doesn't sit well for me because I have always known it by this 'inferior' title.

I really used to love this movie back in the day.

It was "Ilta Kaupungilla" which is a translation from "A Night on the Town" here too [Smile]

Haha, a horror movie thread and we are talking about a Chris Columbus flick [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Yay. Up yours American go getters. Just kidding [Wink]

I thought some light humour with these movies somehow making it into the 80's horror thread was called for [Cool]

Wow .. that's almost as bad as me trying to convince everyone that "The Karate Kid" is actually a horror flick that is perfect for Halloween:

The Karate Kid Thread - Halloween

So why do you think they changed the name of "Adventure In Babysitting" for other countries? Do they not have Babysitters for young kids?

"Adventures In Nannysitting"?

"Adventures In Au Pairsitting"?

watched hell night starring linda blair,vincent van patten,peter barton and suki goodwin.

atmospheric haunted house horror where four pledges have to stay the night in a reputed haunted mansion- garth manor where 12 years previously a father massacred his whole family.

 -
garth manor

skillfully directed by tom desimone who also made the fun w.i.p flicks concrete jungle and reform school girls he manages here to squeeze quite a bit of tension from a rather cliched plot.

saying that back when this came out remembering this was one of the earlier 80s horror/slasher entries (81) the plot of the teens spending a night in a haunted house being stalked by a deformed killer probably still seemed fairly original.


 -

executive producer was chuck russell who went on to direct the likes of a nightmare on elm street 3,the blob ,eraser and the massive jim carrey hit the mask.
irwin yablans exc.producer on halloween 1,2 and 3 was also along with bruce cohn curtis(dreamscape) the producers here.

 -
linda blair - 1981 golden raspberry nominee for hell night.

featuring decent enough performances from all involved(though blair was nominated for a golden raspberry award for her performance here that year), a cool music score and some great location shooting,notably - kimberly crest mansion http://www.kimberlycrest.org/about_house.html in redlands california which makes for the very creepy looking garth manor.

make hell night an above average entry in the haunted house horror/slasher genre.

i really enjoyed it overall and rate it a strong 8/10
