Girls Nite Out (1982)
92 min.
Directed by Robert Deubel.
With Julie Montgomery, James Carroll, David Holbrook, Suzanne Barnes, Hal Holbrook, Rutanya Alda.
Also known as The Scaremaker, this not-so-bad slasher chronicles the light-hearted fun that ensues when a group of college students set about on an enthusiastic scavenger hunt...

'Light-hearted' that is until a psycho wearing a bear mascot outfit begins slashing his way through the participants using his razor-sharp grizzly "claws"!

Helped by a likeable and enthusiastic cast, and a soundtrack consisting of golden oldies such as "Hanky Panky" and "Do You Believe In Magic?" (How *did* they get the rights to the songs?).

This one gets a half star just for the raucous, innocently believable energy of its cast.

There's a healthy sexual vibe that runs throughout...and the whole sophomoric effort is highlighted by another cray-zay end revelation of the killer's identity!
