A black and white, cliche-filled, overacted, lousy effect-filled murder story in a supposedly haunted house – riddled with revue-type jokes. Why exactly give it 3.5/5 then? Well, because this is a tribute to exactly those movies that made them cliche and it gets it exactly right.
Dark and Stormy Night succeeds in remaining funny and heartfelt all the way through to the end. And there are many small tributes in there that aren’t overly exposed, but sufficiently visible for those who already have a warm place in their heart for this type of B-movie. For those that don’t, this movie could change it and if it doesn’t you’ll be sure to laugh at it, inspite of yourself.
