Girl's Nite out is a1982 horror movie directed by Robert Deubel and starring Hal Holbrook.
The movie begins with a man in a sanitarium who hangs himself. He is buried by two gravediggers who are them attacked by an unknown person. Cut to DeWitt University where the kids are having a party and they are talking about a man called Dickie Cavanaugh who killed his girlfriend. They talk about him being locked away. The dead girl's dad,Jim MavVey(Holbrook) works as security officer on campus. There is a killer on campus and when the mascot of the college team gets killed, the killer takes his outfit.
The rest of the film is pretty much a by the numbers slasher movie. The person in the suit goes around killing the students on campus. They are dropping like flies and MacVey finds out that Dickie has a twin sister who just happens to be working on campus as a cafeteria lady and she has been the one who dressed up as the mascot and kills all of the kids as revenge for her brother or something like that. She has her dead brother, who just happens to be the man who killed himself at the beginning of the film. She has his dead body in a wheelchair inside a freezer if you can believe that. She thinks that he is still alive.
This film was okay. There are no surprises here. It is a standard 80's run of the mill slasher movie.
The idea of the mascot being the killer was interesting enough, but after that, I thought that it was
mediocre. So, only watch if you enjoy 80's low budget slashers! I will give it a 4/10.
