Stag Night is a 2008 American horror film[1] written and directed by Peter A. Dowling[2] and starring Kip Pardue, Vinessa Shaw, and Breckin Meyer. The plot follows four men from a bachelor party along with two strippers who become trapped in an abandoned platform in the New York City Subway, where they witness a murder.


Four men on a bachelor party in New York ride the subway and, along with two strippers from the club, accidentally get off at a station that closed down in the 1970s. Trapped in the tunnels beneath New York, they witness the murder of a transit cop by three transients and find themselves on the run for their lives.

Running in almost real time, Stag Night is a throwback to the early film of John Carpenter and 1970s thrillers such as Deliverance while the plot bears a certain resemblance to that of the classic British horror film Death Line (1972).[citation needed]


The film was first time released as Direct-to-DVD on 26 June 2008 in Brazil as Fuga Sobre Trilhos. It was part of the Screamfest Horror Film Festival on 8 February 2010.[5] Ghost House Pictures released the DVD in the United States on 15 February 2011.[6]
