I am a big fan of Malcolm McDowell so the fact he stars in Mischief Night was enough to get me interested but that alone can not carry a movie.
The stars outside of Malcolm are all relative unknowns as is the director Travis Baker. Travis however does have some horror history as he worked on Hostel and 2001 Maniacs so he is no stranger to the genre.
Mischief Night’s trailer starts out strong but gets a bit disjointed and frankly has me wondering if this will be genius or a fizzle. Checkout the trailer below and tell me what you think. It strikes me as a cross of The Good Girl, meets Scream with a side order of Trick R treat
In Mischief Night a teenaged babysitter is stalked by a masked madman but in an unusual turn of events, when victim and victimizer come face-to-face, they begin to develop romantic feelings for each other.
