Night Fright (1967)
Who's In It: John Agar (Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Revenge of the Creature, Tarantula)
What It's About: A monster stalks the woods near a small town college campus.
How It Is: Below average example of the teen-focused monster movies of the time period. My print is crappy, so I couldn't even really see the creature. I'll have to take the DVD cover's word for it that it looked that cool.
Not that the movie cares that much about the monster. It's got the dumbest of origins and the movie is much more interested in teenagers, extended sequences (SO extended) of their dancing, and the drama of who's going to go hang out at the lake. When anyone does think about the monster, it's one bad decision after another.
Rating: 2 out of 5 bored teenagers. I know how they feel.
