Possessed by the Night is a 1994 erotic thriller directed by Fred Olen Ray,[3] who also co-wrote and had a brief appearance in the film. It also stars Shannon Tweed.[4][5]


When a horror writer named Howard Hansen buys an oversized jar containing a strange-looking pickled monster from a tiny shop in Chinatown, he quickly falls under its supernatural influence. Not only can he churn out manuscript pages like never before, he also becomes more sexually aggressive. His unusual change begins to trouble his wife, Peggy, particularly after the arrival of his new sexy blonde live-in secretary, Carol.

What Howard and Peggy don't know is that Carol is conspiring with her partner Murray, Howard's greedy agent, to steal his manuscript. Carol soon becomes possessed by the thing in the jar as well, playing sexual violent games with Howard and Peggy, terrorizing Peggy at every turn, and ultimately turning on Murray, leading to a hyper-violent climax which has nearly everyone blasting away at their co-conspirator with automatic weaponry.[6]
