It's time for another Fear Friday here at Laughing Vixen Lounge. This week we have our final holiday themed movie. A little known gem from the 80's set on New Year's Eve. So get ready to ring in the new year with this less than stellar but still worth a watch film. Enjoy!

Every Friday at the Laughing Vixen Lounge Blog is Fear Friday. Fear Fridays are a celebration of all films spooky. Horror is a very broad genre and the Lounge loves it all. Each Friday you will find a review of a different film. These can range from Classic Horror (black and white and cheesy), Thrillers (suspense, jumps and a good mystery), outright Horror (chop chop, slash slash, die die) and anything else in between.

So pop some popcorn, kill the lights and enjoy tonight's selection. And please, share your comments on the film. Bad or good let me know what you thought of it. And now, my little ghouls and dolls, the Laughing Vixen Lounge Blog is proud to present this week's film.

Fear Friday ~ New Year's Evil (1980)

Tagline - This New Year's, you're invited to a killer party...

Directed by Emmett Alston (Demonwrap and Force of the Ninja) and released in December 1980 by Cannon Films (Rated R). The host of a big New Year's Eve party is receiving threatening calls that promise a death at each stroke of Midnight. As the Midnights come and go the killings gets closer and closer. Will our host survive the night? And do we really care?

I was looking for something with a New Year's theme and I came across this film. While it is by no means a great movie it's not all that bad either. Set against a 1980's Punk Rock/New Wave New Year's Eve party that is being broadcast from LA. The host of the show, Diane, receives calls each stroke of midnight from some creepy guy who has just killed someone. Unlike most movies we actually see the killer from the beginning. We just do not know who it is yet.

This movie has lots of bad 80's style, music, acting and lots of "mommy" issues. I still found it fun enough to watch just do not expect too much from it. This is a Golan-Globus production. If you are a Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan like me you will remember quite a few movies from this production company got riffed during that show.

New Year's Evil is currently available on Netflix and Amazon.

Take a look at the original trailer.

Sorry, no trivia on this one.
