If you like learning, stay away from this Night School
on 10 April 2015
Police begin investigating when several young women, who are studying at the same college, disappear and turn up dead.
Night School aka- Terror Eyes is a pretty standard stalk'n'slash from the 80's although it is surprisingly well made. Seasoned director Ken Hughes does his very best at getting a decent film from an average script, unlike some similar movies from the period he at least tries to build some suspense and create interesting characters, he actually is successful in the former but alas the script does defeat him with the latter. Despite its reputation as a video nasty the film isn't really all that gory, the playground roundabout scene is typical where you see threats and knife waving but no actual penetration of the weapon. Acting is OK, Leonard Mann as the lead cop is decent enough, Rachel Ward shows little of the promise she would soon deliver but is fine for this kind of picture and the rest of the cast do just about enough. The weakest points are what really hurt the film, the mystery is poor from fairly early on its obvious who the killer is (although the stuntman/extra they put in the leather outfit looks nothing like the actual killer) & the pace is very slow at times, possibly even too slow for some tastes, but things do improve towards the end and the climax is fun.
Well made little horror film that will keep most horror fans interested for the runtime, just don't expect Halloween and you won't be disappointed.
