'''''Hell Night''''' is a SlasherFlick from the year 1981.

It centers around a bunch of new fraternity kids, who in a part of hazing are locked up in the abandoned Garth Manor. Supposedly, old man Garth killed his family and hung himself several years ago and the manor is said to be haunted.
Unfortunately for our protagonists, someone is still lurking within the manor walls and he doesn't take tresspassers kindly.

* CoversAlwaysLie: Cover of one DVD version depicts Linda Blair's character as a menacing figure, which isn't the case as she is the FinalGirl.



* [=~Hey, It's That Guy!~=]: Don't expect Marti to [[TheExorcist spin her head, projectile vomit and shout obscenities]] any time soon



* WhatAnIdiot: Oh Jeff, just because you managed to chase away the killer, that doesn't mean ''you should go after him''.
