Reviews:

‘Friday the 13th: Halloween Night is awesome. This is what fan films should be. Just some buddies having a good time. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, this sort of fan-filmmaking is dead and has been replaced with slicker, more well thought out films that act as show reels for an effects crew. That’s okay I guess, but I’d much rather watch Chris Seaver and his friends fumbling around in front of a camera and throwing blood over their parents’ bathroom walls.’ Dave Jackson, Mondo Exploito

‘The killings in Friday the 13th: Halloween Night are gory. Cut throats, rake swipes and knives through heads abound. The characters are pretty indistinguishable. In fact, the guys playing the characters are pretty indistinguishable too. Some have glasses, some don’t. That’s one way to tell them apart. The guy who plays Jason does a good job. Michael looks exactly like someone’s friend dressed up as Michael Myers.’ Dan Budnik, Bleeding Skull!

 

‘ …an interesting (and confusingly titled) little obscurity that needs to be seen by slasher fanatics who can forgive shoestring budgeting. Whilst technically it’s at the level that you’d expect for $200 (the POV through eye-hole shots are clearly just a mask placed on top of the camcorder) there’s enough cheesy fun to be had by forgiving fans.’ Luisito Joaquín González, A Slash Above…

‘ …packed with over the top acting and some fun backyard gore effects.’ Rotten Ink
