Happy Hell Night ★★ 1992 (R)

A fraternity prank helps a crazed priest escape from a mental institution and again take up his hobby fom 25 years ago—killing local fraternity members. Oh, the irony is delicious! Unfortunately, the direction and script are not, and they bury some genuinely scary moments. Look for a prestardom Rockwell and pre-”CSI” Fox, along with McGavin making a mortgage payment or two. 84m/C DVD . Nick Gregory, Darren McGavin, Sam Rockwell, Jorja Fox, Ted Clark, Frank John Hughes, Irfan Mensur, Gala Videnovic, Laura Carney, Charles Cragin; D: Brian Owens; W: Brian Owens; C: Sol Negrin.
