October 12th: Night of The Demons 3 (1997)
It's been years since the St. Rita's Academy massacre and school cheerleader Holly (Stephanie Bauder) and her shy friend Abbie (Patricia Rodriguez) are getting ready for the Halloween dance. Meanwhile, bad boy Vince (Kristen Holden-Ried), his slutty girlfriend Lois (Tara Slone) and their friends Nick (Gregory Calpakis), Reggie (Joel Gordon) and Orson (Christian Tessier) are killing time by cruising around town in Orson's van.
In preparing to watch Night of The Demons 3, I went in with incredibly low expectations. The original Night of The Demons was a fucking catastrophe and, though I enjoyed Night of The Demons 2, I would never say it was a good movie. Furthermore, the man responsible for that first film, Kevin S. Tenney, was back for the third installment as writer, editor and second unit director, leaving it to Jimmy Kaufman of Shades of Love and Sirens fame to direct, not to mention that '90s horror, save for The Silence of The Lambs and Scream, is pretty dismal. How could this possibly be good?
