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.
