  1. ejonline's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Didn't see it when it came out, and only managed to do so after it became a bit of a cult film. Eh. I don't remember it being either so totally 80's or so totally making fun of the 80s that it registered as anything notable. Not sure what people see in it. Perhaps it has been embraced by folks who didn't experience the 80's first-hand. If so, well, that happens.

  2. Joel's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Damn. Though it started pretty overly 80s in style and aesthetic I thought maybe some elegant moments might sift through, unfortunately after the half way mark any attempt at a clearly thought-out plot gives way to weird half baked idea after another until the downright goofy ending. Sorry to those who see this as a cult classic, it's at the bottom half of my post-apocalyptic film list for sure.

  3. Palmat's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    A fun and weird 80´s apocalyptic flick. The tone is a bit all over the place and the movie never seems to know where to settle. The acting is good and the hammy and cheesy moments only add to the fun.

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    What's worse than 1 valley girl? 2 valley girls and zombies. And the 80s. Stars Catherine Mary Stewart and Chakotay from ST:V. I recommend 'Mischief' if you like Catherine.

  5. William's rating of the film Night of the Comet

  6. Levi Miah's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Great lighting and 80s jams with kick-ass female protagonists but it was clearly lacking budget in certain departments that would've pushed it into a genuinely great film rather than a fun b-movie, like maybe more than one zombie and any amount of gore. This would make a great, odd little TV show now, especially following on from the end.

  7. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Lacks the bite of that other great punk, B-movie satire from the 1980s, Repo Man, even when hitting many of the same political targets (consumerism, teen alienation, Reaganomics, etc). The film gets a lot of mileage out of its likable leads (particular its valley girl protagonists) while capturing an atmosphere that feels part inspired by Dawn of the Dead & part precursor to the stylisations of To Live and Die in LA.

  8. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    A movie that luckily never takes this zombie apocalypse serious and is more concerned with what a girl is to do with her life when all the men have become human-eating monsters and the only one left seems to be Robert Beltran, who has to be one of the lousiest love interests in an apocalyptic world. It is a perfectly dated movie with 80s hairdos, music and fashion and Catherine Mary Stewart at her sexiest.

  9. Lutka's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Great great cinematography, every shot is perfectly planned and executed. The dialogues are bad but it is fun as this makes the film goofy and fun! Typical rare sci-fi pearl from the eighties.

  10. Pedderrs's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Night of the Comet is unapologetic with its intentions from the off. Poking fun at everything from 1950s Sci-fi to George Romero's Dawn of the Dead, Thom Everharbt's low-budget end of the world movie is a lot of fun on paper. Unfortunately the script appears to run out of ideas once the comet hits and all we are left with is some beautiful shots of desolate city landscapes and two very charismatic lead actresses.

  11. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    I liked Maroney and the color schemes in the first half. The second half is boring as hell.

  12. Janae's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    I like the idea of two sisters surviving the apocalypse together. And there's a mall montage!

  13. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Una película que tiene sus falencias, pero que no deja de tener una serie de sucesos inspiradores. Es en primer lugar su premisa. Un mundo sin humanos y algunos sobrevivientes convertidos en zombies. Una enfrentamiento en un centro comercial recuerda vagamente al "Amanecer de los muertos". Está también sobre los científicos experimentando (tópico de George Romero). Un suicidio que desencaja para bien del filme.

  14. alyssa's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    this movie is exactly what it should be. it's stupid and it's perfect. (and it's real nice quality)

  15. romaz's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    A fun little b-movie that has a bit of the Return of the Living Dead vibe to it, and all of the 80s bits you can fit into 95 minutes.

  16. mpho3's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Giving this three stars is a bit generous, but for the era in which it was produced and an occasional show of wit, I can be generous. A lot of people find the 80s nostalgic. For me, it's cringe-worthy, but if you can't laugh at the past you're screwed.

  17. Fırat Ataç's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    I really wanted to like this movie, But in the end I just couldn't.

  18. film_lies101's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    dragged in a few spots, but fun overall

  19. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    I read W.E.B Du Bois' The Comet & then watched this despite the 2 being seemingly unrelated & it rly adds another level (w/r/t the main girls initial racism, the one off 'is he gay' convo - white women reinforcing white heteropatriarchy in lieu of white men even at the end of the world !but! gradually letting go of it). Rly makes u think....... Also this movie is near perfect/everything I luv 80s fun. Like, totally.

  20. Matt Burgess's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Totally in love with the neon colours and blood-red skies but despite the lovely slick 80s trash packaging, just too tame, cornball and lacking in enough solid exploitive thrills to stand out from the pack. The valley-girl-shopping-mall-shootout-with-uzis set to 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' sounds incredible on paper but falls flat on screen. Trash the dvd, save the screencaps.

  21. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film Night of the Comet

  22. Robert Karol's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Trashy, sugary cult film that starts strong but loses steam once it starts ripping off DAWN OF THE DEAD and killing off Mary Woronov. The day-glo production design and occasional witty line can't make up for a mostly wooden cast and a bog-standard evil government scientist plot.

  23. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    Complete and absolute fun! Goofy, crazy and bizarre. The 80s meet the B-movie. An absolutely entertaining film.

  24. Ilhame Benboubker's rating of the film Night of the Comet

    The Omega Man+Teen Movie+George A Romero= Night of the Comet
