Hell Night kicks off 2018 from Scream Factory

While it is easy to dismiss Linda Blair’s cinematic career after the disaster that was Exorcist 2: The Heretic, she made quite a few amazing low budget films among them is Hell Night. The tale of pledges dealing with an not-so-urban legend packed in the scares and Blair knew how to sell the shock. Now the film is getting a deluxe collector’s edition that includes a new interview with Blair on January 2 so you recover from New Year’s Eve before hitting play. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:

One dark night 12 years ago, madman Raymond Garth butchered his wife and children in their mansion before killing himself. Legend has it that one child survived the slaughter and remains hidden in the house as a deformed monster. Years later on pledge night, a group of new fraternity and sorority pledges must spend an evening in this creepy mansion on the anniversary of the killings. But what starts off as a night of innocent pranks and rowdiness soon turns deadly…

Synopsis:
As an initiation rite into Alpha Sigma Rho fraternity, four pledges must spend a night in Garth Manor, twelve years to the day after the previous resident murdered his entire family. Two of the pledges, Marti, and Jeff ignore the rumors that the now-deserted mansion is haunted by a crazed killer, until one by one, members of their group mysteriously disappear. Could this be a part of a fraternity prank … or is a demented former occupant seeking revenge?
