To All A Goodnight (1980)

[xrr rating=3/5]

David Hess’s only film as director, To All A Goodnight, is the story of a Christmas party held by the students at a local girls school.  When all the boys show up and the party gets going, a killer in a Santa suit begins to off one couple at a time.  It is the typical story line for an 80’s slasher, but this was actually one of the early Christmas slashers.  And unlike later holiday slashers, the killer’s identity remains a mystery until the conclusion.

On a low budget, Hess directs a successful themed slasher.  The kills are certainly creative, and the gore is decently accomplished although limited.  All the elements are there and well-executed, but nothing stands out on its own.  As a result, the film is overlooked by many.  To All A Goodnight really is a decent slasher, especially around the holiday season, so I’d recommend adding this to your list of holiday horror viewing.
