A film we’ve been hearing about for a while now, Devil’s Night starring Danielle Harris, finally arrived on DVD this week, and we have all the details right here.
From the Press Release:
Devil’s Night is a retro blast of blood-splattering fun from Mindscape Films & Nictophobia Films that recoils back to the 70’s and 80’s with a slaughterhouse of homages that horror fans will scream for. The movie stars Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Hatchet II & III), Shawn Roberts (George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead, Resident Evil: Retribution), Steve Byers (House of the Dead, Total Recall 2012), and Boyd Banks (Dawn of the Dead 2004, George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead, Hellmouth). Devil’s Night is an entertaining, scary horror romp that will inevitably become part of every horror fan’s annual Halloween celebration.
The movie tells the story of five frat boys who are involved in a Halloween prank that ends in murder. They keep the accident a close secret until Devil’s Night the following year when a mysterious assailant begins stalking them with a vengeance. One by one the college students start to disappear, and with nowhere to turn the surviving friends are forced to involve the authorities who are already busy hunting Michael Lymburner, a local serial killing pig farmer. With the police convinced that the murders are somehow linked to Lymburner, the frat boys believe that the killer is someone else, someone who must have witnessed the crime they committed the year before.
“I was talking with my brother about creating a movie around a local mansion we could use as a shooting location,” explains writer/director Christopher Harrison. “It immediately reminded us of the frat house in Night of the Creeps, one of our favorite films of that period. One thing led to another, and I quickly suggested paying homage to all of the films that we grew up loving by adding in a masked killer, a scream queen, and an array of genre homages that will surely be noticed by horror fans around the world.”
“We jumped on this film as soon as we watched it,” says Black Fawn Distribution founder Chad Archibald. “We’re also huge fans of 80’s horror, and this movie brought us back to the days where we would pop in VHS tapes and watch a masked killer torment a small town’s youth. Well, that and the fact that the iconic Danielle Harris is in it!”
The Devil’s Night DVD comes packed with loads of special features including a Q&A with director Christopher Harrison and star Danielle Harris, behind-the-scenes and artwork slideshows, audio commentary, trailers, and an exclusive audio player featuring music from the film including Monster Truck, The Creepshow, Saint Alvia, The Reason, and more. Copies of Devil’s Night can be purchased now on DVD or as part of a limited edition package from Black Fawn Distribution.
