The Chronicles of Horror Movie Night: ‘A Night to Dismember’ (1983)


Posted by:

After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!

Holy hell, was this a special Horror Movie Night!

While I know the titles, and reputations, of many of Doris Whishman’s films, this was my first foray into her interesting brand of filmmaking. The majority of the woman’s flicks are centered around big-breasted ladies baring all onscreen. This includes the infamous Chesty Morgan. She had a reported 73FF bust – in case you didn’t know.

Now that you’ve had time to pick your jaw up from the floor we’ll get on to the film at hand…

Why would this purveyor of sexploitation goodness make it onto the roster for HMN? Well, she made two horror films in her illustrious career and the first was her answer to the slasher boom of the early 80s. In 1983 Doris set out to fill screens with blood and boobs with A Night to Dismember. She succeeded in this quest, as well as confusing the hell out of everyone who witnessed this brief feature.
