Movie Reviews

John Agar is the only good actor in this snorefeast
Andre Villemaire | Canada | 01/29/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"At this price, i cant complain. This movie is set at night as you
hear the crickets...but filmed during the day with the camera iris down a bit to make it look like night. Lots of running and more running. At least the script written for the tennagers is pretty funny as they use words no heard since the late 60's. The creature is not too bad and looks a bit better than Robot Monster. Overhall the dvd is fun to watch up to a point because it has John Agar who appeared in so many interesting, bigger budget science fiction movies."
I Know, Let's Dance!
Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein | under the rubble | 06/21/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"NIGHT FRIGHT stars John Agar as sheriff Clint Crawford. Life is good in his county until a flaming object (we never get to see it) crashes in the woods. A strange creature begins killing the local "teenagers" in their cool cars! Clint and his deputy are in hot pursuit, tracking the mutant when suddenly, the deputy is attacked and killed! We get lots of scenes of the beast lumbering through the trees, and a long "teen" (there's no one under 35 in this movie) dance sequence, showcasing the latest moves of 1967. Thankfully, the monster is only shown in darkness, thus avoiding total embarassment! Agar does his best to keep his dignity intact. Not a bad flick. Worth a peek..."
John Agar, A Vague Monster From Space, And Lots Of Bad Danci
Robert I. Hedges | 09/11/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"John Agar is one of my favorite B-movie actors, and in this movie plays the heroic small town Sheriff struggling to overcome the horror of multiple monster attacks perpetrated on "teenagers" (who appear to be about 30 in actuality.)

The premise is boilerplate: a thing comes from space (it turns out to be man-made with radiation issues) bringing a horrifying monster which attacks young couples in their cars. It also finishes off the most cowardly Deputy since Barney Fife put a bullet in his service revolver. Most of the movie is spent running through the woods and watching some exceptionally bad lakeside dancing (in very laughable clothes and even worse hair) but we occasionally get glimpses of the monster which tend not to be especially terrifying as they were apparently filmed with black and black film: there is so little contrast and the print is so dark, you never really can see the monster. It appears to be a Bigfoot type creature with a Halloween mask on, but I can't really be sure. Eventually Agar and his enlistees (and obligatory love interest) fell the creature with supplies from a local contractor and the fright once again leaves the night.

This one is more boring than a typical Agar film, and pales compared to his masterwork "Zontar, The Thing From Venus," but it's still enjoyable as a bit of camp.
You Can't Run In Go-Go Boots
Gary F. Taylor | Biloxi, MS USA | 06/17/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, it's like this. A super-secret government rocket experiment crashes, but the feds won't let the local sheriff see it. Not long after there's a really nasty murder down on lover's lane. Could the two things be connected? In the meantime, and in spite of the sheriff's warnings, a group of teenagers decide to have a dance-and-make-out party down at the lake. Have you ever tried to run from a monster while you are wearing go-go boots?

Released in 1967, NIGHT FRIGHT, also known as FRIGHT NIGHT, is the sort of movie where everybody gets in the car at night, and then we see car traveling in the daylight, and when they get out of the car its night again. The teenagers aren't really teenagers, the actors aren't really actors, there's no script or plot to speak of, and the monster looks like a cast-off ape costume with a kinda-sorta lizard mask on top. Sure, John Agar is in it, but his big claim to fame is that he was once Mr. Shirley Temple, and that's all you can say about him one way or another.

My thought: people who watch this movie have way too much time on their hands, and watching this movie will make that time seem way longer than it already does. Skip it.
