And To All a Goodnight.

It's Christmas time with David Hess and Alex Rebar!

To All a Goodnight starts off like any other slasher flick in the 80's, someone is getting pranked on and then it goes real bad. We see a young pretty girl being chased around inside of a sorority house by stupid girls holding sharp weapons, next thing you know, the girl accidentally falls from the stairs and immediately dies, then the title of the movie is shown as the awesome theme song plays. When I heard the theme song, I knew this was going to be a great movie. Now it's the present time (the accident happened 2 years ago) and the sorority house is still there but with new girls living in it, all of them have unique features (mhm!) and attitudes, they do however have one thing in common.... They're being hunted down by a maniac wearing a Santa Claus outfit.

The killings in the movie are pretty gruesome but the problem is........ You can barely see anything. The movie was filmed with no lights in the night time scenes (in this case, the day for night scenes) so it was really hard to see what the fuck was going on in a lot of parts of the movie. However, I was very fond of the music score playing through out the whole movie, it is extremely 80's and badass! If only a soundtrack was released...

It's really hard to say if any of you will like this movie, it does have problems and a lot of these problems will bother some viewers, especially the trendy horror fans. I personally really liked it, it's crazy, dark (no pun intended), weird, and quite trashy. Check it out. 7/10.

I remember renting this one on VHS way back. Pretty decent from what I remember, but nothing special. I would pick it up on DVD should it ever come out just because Krug directed it.

a DVD would be nice to have, they could remaster it (it needs that badly) and make a cool cover for it. Personally, I don't like the VHS cover much, it looks like a ghost movie rather than a slasher movie.
