After a girl goes missing, two of her friends and a mysterious set of strangers find themselves drawn to the cabin in the woods where she disappeared. They will laugh, they will drink, they will kiss, they will make love, and THEY MUST ALL DIE.
In case you are – like me – a lazy person who solely selects movies based on the title and poster images, chances are fairly high that you’ll assume “Tonight She Comes” is a good old-fashioned throwback 80s slasher. Well, if it’s a slasher you seek, than you should certainly not watch this movie! Everything looks promisingly familiar during the first 15-20 minutes, with a remote lakeside cabin setting and the introduction of four lead characters (2 guys and 2 girls) that are dumb, horny and basically just begging to get slaughtered in the most painful ways imaginable. They indulge in mindless sex and alcohol, although they should be looking for their friend Kristy, the girl who owns the cabin but is nowhere to be found. Then, suddenly, “Tonight She Comes” turns into a bizarre and disgusting mixture of body-horror and demonic possession flick, but unfortunately it’s nothing even remotely resembling the original “The Evil Dead”. Kristy does return to the cabin, butt-naked and covered in blood, but she apparently has a different type of rancid party in mind. As it turns out, Kristy was the victim of some sort of satanic ritual that a deranged father performed, together with his son and daughter, in an attempt to resurrect their dead mother. To make it things even crazier, the son (Philip) and daughter (Felicity) revolt against their psycho daddy and team up with the dumb kids. Admittedly all this doesn’t sound half-bad, and “Tonight She Comes” easily could have been a decent horror sleeper, if only it wasn’t filled with imbecilic and irritating defaults.
