In this horror-comedy, at a New Year’s Eve party, Nico, a naive twenty-year-old, sets out ready to lose his virginity at all costs that same night. In the middle of the party, his gaze crosses Medea, a cunning and attractive mature woman.

The Night of the Virgin kind of plays out like an extended episode of Tales from the Crypt, which is cool in tone and concept but does drag a little at the start and in the middle. Regardless, the movie is all building to a more gruesome and gross later half and it is that half that the movie gets cooking and really starts to shine. More the most part, we have a movie where a nerdy virgin is locked in an apartment with a woman who seems pretty shady and weird. Her boyfriend is on the outside trying to get in and that is where things start to get all sorts of weird and the mystery of the situation unfolds.

When things start to hit the fan here is when stuff happens that makes this movie memorable. We get some great bloody effects and some are a bit hard to watch. The key to enjoyment with this one will be if you are content with sitting there and waiting for it to get to the good stuff. There’s a lot of weird stuff going on in this one and as a fan of weird movies, I think I can safely say that I was content with what we got here in The Night of the Virgin. If you like blood and effects this movie has that with a weird tone with the only real downside the unlikable “virgin” and the slower start.
