After the film “Hell Night” had been on the index for almost 25 years until December 2008, it took another 11 years until UCM.ONE released the HD-scanned and restored film uncut on September 27, 2019 for the first time as a limited mediabook with Blu-Ray and DVD together including a 16-page booklet in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. At the same time, the film will also be available on VoD portals.
The film “Hell Night” (also known under the German name “Paranoia – Alleine mit dem Killer“) begins with the fact that the four young liaison candidates Marti (Linda Blair), Jeff (Peter Barton), Denise (Suki Goodwin) and Seth (Vincent van Patten) are supposed to spend a night in the well-known, old-fashioned haunted house Garth Manor as the climax of an entrance examination for the student fraternity “Alpha Sigma Rho”. Twelve years ago, the landlord allegedly killed his wife, three of his deformed children and finally himself and left his youngest son, the idiot Andrew, alone. Of course, horror stories report that the unfortunate man is still walking through the house, but even the initiators of the entrance examination don’t believe it. But with the tricks they play on the four applicants, they are suddenly surprised by a killer and the test of courage and the initial pleasure quickly become bloody seriousness…
