Synopsis: Three Satanists get more than they bargained for while hanging out one evening in the woods.

Trying to create a genuinely original horror film is not any easy task. And countless independent filmmakers have tried only to be crushed by their ambition. To be honest, as a reviewer I have suffered through more than my fare share of independently made horrors films. Recently I was approached to check out a independently made horror film titled Fever Night (aka Band of Satanic Outsiders). And to my surprise.

From a production stand point just about every aspect of Fever Night is pitch perfect. The direction is stylish, the film’s ambient sounds capes are superbly realized and the acting fare exceeded my expectations. Things start off strong as the plot does a great job laying the foundation for where this film wants to go. As good as things start off. Unfortunately this film does start to lose its way by the finale. After creating a tension filled opening act. The film starts to lose some of its bite as its tone shifts more away from its horror roots, into a psychedelic nightmare that while definitely demented intone. It lacks the backbone that the aforementioned opening act had. Whether intentional or not after this shift in tone occurs. There are also many moments that try to mix comedy with horror with mixed results. When all is said and done, despite its short comings Fever Night is easily the most interesting and inventive horror film that I have seen in a very long time.
