Deconstruction: Hell Night (Tome DeSimone) (1981) ALL

Budget: $25,000,000
Genre: Horror

Released in 1981 although there has been a sequal since this date such as Happy Hell Night released in 1992.
College students killed off one by one by the surviving members of a family massacre years earlier for trespassing on their living grounds in the old mansion.

1. Scream denotation signifies horror although it starts off almost as a chick flick as it is based at an abandoned mansion.
2. Hair styles and close signify the time period.
3. The digetic sound coming from the stereo on screen also signifies the time period as its more of your typical rock music sang by a woman.
4. Lots of woman dressed in revealing outfits we get the idea of who the scream queen is from the opening few minutes of the film when we get inside the house.
5. Red thick text on screen almost blood-like.
