A host of familiar genre faces including Hal Holbrook (Creepshow), Rutanya Alda (Amityville II: The Possession), Julia Montgomery (The Kindred) and Lauren-Marie Taylor (Friday the 13th Part 2) rounds out the cast of this gloriously mean-spirited slice from the slasher golden age, Girls Nite Out! The students of DeWitt University are preparing themselves for a night of fun and frolics in the form of an all-night scavenger hunt. Little do they know that they are in fact the ones being hunted... An unhinged assailant, disguised in the college's goofy bear mascot outfit - and bearing knives for claws, two years before Freddy donned his famous gloves - is stalking the campus hellbent on carving up co-eds. Originally released under the only marginally more appropriate title of The Scaremaker, Girls Nite Out is a decidedly singular slasher flick which comes on like a frenetic cross between Animal House and Friday the 13th - veering from jovial frat antics to jarringly disturbing scenes of the killer shrieking obscenities as he slices up his victims. On this nite out, no one is coming home!

Press Quotes

Fairly disturbing... a perfect example of early 80's exploitation packaging

     —Hysteria Lives

Definitely has an effective, scare producing 'twist' ending

     —30 Days of Horror

Girls Nite Out is the vignette-styled slasher that Robert Altman never made

     —Bleeding Skull

The Digital Bits

...gloriously mean-spirited slice from the slasher golden age.

     —Zombies Don't Run

Trailers, reversible artwork and an alternate title card for its original moniker, “The Scaremaker,” round out another superb Arrow release.

     —Andre Dursin, AndyFilm.com

Girls Nite Out feels more like real life than most other slashers…

     —Orrin Grey, Signal Horizon

Girls Nite Out is certainly entertaining.

     —Corey Danna, Horror Geek Life

It’s one of the many masked maniac movies that came out in the 80s and if you are a fan of slashers then this movie is for you. Also, if you’re looking for something a little different and slightly off-kilter, then this is also for you.

     —Brian M. Sammons, Hell Notes

It comes close to achieving the hang-out, coming-of-age vibe of early Richard Linklater or Paul Thomas Anderson movies, just with a mad killer twist. And it is during these slice-of-life scenes where Girls Nite Out shines

     —Gabe Powers, Genre Grinder

Girls Nite Out is a slasher that attempts to lull you into a false sense of security with its college party backdrop where the interpersonal drama piques your interest.

     —Dillon Gonzales, Geek Vibes Nation

People who love this movie will be delighted by the depth and breadth of the special features…

     —Shiny Things
