Night Warning

In one of the strangest mind-shredders banned during the UK’s notorious video nasty uproar, Susan Tyrrell (Forbidden Zone) gives one of the greatest, most amazingly unhinged performances in exploitation cinema history. Extremely attached to her live-in nephew (Jimmy McNichol), she won’t let anything, or anybody, get between them, lest they meet a particularly bloody fate. But when their tv repairman turns up dead, a homophobic cop (The Inglorious Bastards’ Bo Svenson) is convinced the boy is to blame, leading to an inescapable and grisly climax. Featuring Newhart’s Julia Duffy, and Bill Paxton in one of his earliest on-screen roles.

“Susan Tyrrell gives a tour-de-force performance.” – Variety
