Sequel to 1990 slasher The Night Brings Charlie is in the works

The Night Brings Charlie Tom Logan Bruce Carson

Is there a horror movie that you remember fondly, something that made an impact on you, but you've found that a lot of your fellow horror fans aren't familiar with? For me, one of those movies is director Tom Logan's 1990 slasher THE NIGHT BRINGS CHARLIE. A large portion of my childhood was spent watching every slasher movie I could get my hands on, and THE NIGHT BRINGS CHARLIE was one of the slashers I watched at an impressionable age. More than twenty-five years later, I can still remember my first viewing of that film.

THE NIGHT BRINGS CHARLIE is the sole feature writing credit for Bruce Carson, who has been more prolific as a stuntman, having worked on such films as the original THE HILLS HAVE EYES PART II, the original A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, FREDDY'S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE, and Tobe Hooper's CROCODILE. The movie had the following synopsis:

THE NIGHT BRINGS CHARLIE is a horrifying descent into the twisted killing spree of a psychopath. Charlie Puckett, a disfigured tree surgeon, becomes the prime suspect as a series of gruesome murders are committed with the deadly slash from a tree trimming saw. But in a town seized by terror, Charlie might not be the only thing to fear.

All these years later, Carson is expanding the writing section of his résumé by scripting a sequel titled THE NIGHT BRINGS CHARLIE BACK, a project he also intends to make his feature directorial debut.

The ending of the first film did leave the door wide open for a sequel, but with so much time having passed I figured the chances of Charlie coming back were zero. I love that Carson is finally working on getting the sequel off the ground and look forward to watching its progress - and to eventually watching the film itself.

The script is in place, locations are secured, and a cast is being assembled, so hopefully Charlie will be stalking the night again very soon.

I wrote this film....

I wrote the original "The Night Brings Charlie" and stunt coordinated the film at Universal Studios Florida. The film was rewritten by a staff writer who was not happy that my script was chosen. I won't go into it but I never liked the dual Charlie thing and the who done it crap. Charlie was originally a ruthless killer who's favorite killing device was a fold out tree saw. The original Script was scary and gruesome. I feel it's teeth were pulled in the re-write and I've wanted to bring my
I wrote the original "The Night Brings Charlie" and stunt coordinated the film at Universal Studios Florida. The film was rewritten by a staff writer who was not happy that my script was chosen. I won't go into it but I never liked the dual Charlie thing and the who done it crap. Charlie was originally a ruthless killer who's favorite killing device was a fold out tree saw. The original Script was scary and gruesome. I feel it's teeth were pulled in the re-write and I've wanted to bring my character to life for a long time. As much as I didn't like all these things it's still my film and characters and I own the rights to a reboot. I am excited to bring Charlie back...this time he will be everything you fear...

ok here's the deal... Again...

"I really like slasher movies,but this one is truly awful.The acting is lame,the script is bad,and the atmosphere is non-existent.The plot is as follows:a deformed gardener Charlie Puckett slaughters people in a small American town.That's right-this is the plot.Very original,eh!"The Night Brings Charlie" isn't even gory enough-if the film ain't gonna be scary,at least they should make it bloody.Avoid this cheap piece of trash at all costs.If you want to see some good slasher flicks check out

ok here's the deal...

The night Brings Charlie *IS* on amazon but its a $35.99 VHS tape.. there is NO icon (as you see above) Amazon doesn't even show the VHS box art, it says nothing is on file... .but they are selling used VHS copies...
ok weird... so there's a reason WHY we never heard about this flick, it never made the transition to DVD and it certainly isnt on Blu-Ray either... so thats why nobody has ever heard of it.
