Unusual and effective. - Stage Fright review by NP

Spoiler Alert
16/09/2021

Unlike a lot of people, I’m not a fan of 1980’s horror. For me, it was the decade when such films became a franchise, when fairly average characters like Jason, Freddie Michael Myers were stretched far beyond their levels of interest by the ever more blatant need to make money. Any interest or genuine nastiness (Freddie was a child killer to begin with, for example) was replaced by cartoon gimmickry.

‘Stage Fright’ is a film where the production values scream 80’s out loud, so I was wary of it at first – but it proves its worth within moments. A slasher/giallo hybrid, the man in the mask is far from conventional, and the potential victims – who lock themselves in *with* the killer believing him to be locked *out* – are eccentric and interesting too.

Peter the director is a waspish lead, and his troupe of actors are a mixed bunch – eager for star billing and trampling over others to achieve it. The kills are carried out in a variety of imaginative ways, some set pieces are genuinely unsettling and the chunky synth soundtrack exemplifies the atmosphere.

I really enjoyed this unusual, horror film. My score is 8 out of 10.
