Liz (Deneen Melody) has never understood why mum has moved
her and her little sister Holly (Lily Cardone) right in the midle of
nowhere, USA, especially since mum never seems to be home anyways, and
there's something creepy about their house. As if there was
something/someone there with them. But hey, why not make the best of it
anyways and have a housewarming party with a few friends ...
As these parties tend to go of course, this one gets a tiny bit out of
hand and before you know it, some guests are a little too drunk, a little
too wild, a little too sexually charged, whatever, and Liz has her hands
full keeping things smooth anyways ... and then people see her, the little
girl (Grace Chapman). The little girl doesn't actually do any harm, but she warns those
she talks to that they're going to die rather clearly ... and above all
else, she's quite obviously a ghost. And whichever way you take it, the
girl really isn't the baddie of the story here, her parents (Debbie
Rochon, Michael Ellison) are, who have killed her many moons ago, have
since died themselves, but now they are back as undeads as evil as they
come. Most of the party guests are cannon fodder before too long, but some
take up the figth, first and foremost Liz, who needs to protect not only
her little sister but also her boyfriend Otto (Dwight Cenac), who's just a
little bit too fond of playing action hero without the right skills, and
her brother Charlie (Joe Davison), who might be sheriff of the town who
takes his job very seriously ... but he's also quite a klutz. Now Liz
fights the undead with all she's got - but do a machete, a samurai sword
and a shotgun really help against something that's already dead? But what
about the little girl, it's not likely she's fighting for her parents'
cause, is she?
Now As Night Falls might not be the greatest movie ever about
ghosts and the undead and the like - but it is one thing, it's fun, good
unpretentious genre entertainment that might not take itself all seriously
all the time, but there's plenty of spooks, action, gore, with a few
puerile jokes and sexual innuendo mixed in - and hey, Deneen Melody really
looks great when she's kicking ass, too - and she does it convincingly,
Next to perfect party entertainment, actually!
