Horror Movie Review: Night of Something Strange (2016)

“How could I think your balls were two clits?!”

Night of Something Strange is an American horror film directed by Jonathan Straiton and produced by Ron Bonk.

Night of Something Strange is most definitely not for the faint of heart or easily offended, so if the beginning of the film turns your stomach I’d suggest you go no further as you haven’t seen anything yet. Luckily for me I’m completely desensitized and have a boyfriend who’s able to sit next to me and watch a guy get himself stuck inside his zombified friends’ asshole without batting an eyelid. Who says true love is dead.

When five teenage friends set out for the beach on their Spring Break vacation good times are cut short when one of the group, Carrie (Toni Ann Gambale), contracts a deadly sexual transmitted disease during a bathroom stop. During a stop for the night at an isolated motel, the real terror begins when the STD virus starts running rampant, turning those infected into the living dead. However, there’s more going on at the motel than meets the eye.


This film is the ultimate gross-out film, with great effects considering its low budget; the mechanical vagina and penis were damn impressive. What I really enjoyed though besides the hilarity was that it had other layers; I was surprised when the character Dirk (Trey Harrison) wasn’t the asshole jock he seemed and was able to sit down with a story to tell. Of course most characters were simply there to serve their purpose and be killed off, but personally I think it gets better the further into the movie you get and it doesn’t go where you’d expect.


My favourite characters were Freddy (Michael Merchant) and Jason (John Walsh), their dynamic was terrible and hilarious all at once. Honourable mention to the gas station owner, she was definitely misjudged and was probably a sweetheart really.


Overall, Night of Something Strange is gross, funny, terrible, amazing and entertaining all at once. How about a sequel to follow that ending?!
