The movie opens with a spaceship arriving on Earth, followed by some soft core action as various individuals get it on during the night in some woods by a river...some stuff happens, at least one person gets murdered (I think), and now we're in a hospital as two women dressed in truly ridiculous space outfits are wheeling a gurney with one of the kids from the woods. As the two alien orderlies start fondling each other (seriously), the kid decides this a good a time as any to escape. Passing an open doorway he sees three individuals, whom we later learn are named Dr. Kozmar (Carradine), Dr.Read more ›
The acting, the script, the effects, the production quality are all reminiscent of the Roger Corman classics we all (well some of us including me) loved from the 60's 70's.
These are not films you critique, these are films you plop down with a bag of popcorn and few drinks and have some laughs and escape for awhile.
I give the film 4 Stars because I believe it accomplishes exactly what it intended to do and be...many, many films touted as "A" films with 10x the budget miss that mark.
This is a fun romp of a film, you don't try to make sense of it...you just sit back and roll with it ;)
That all said, B-Movies are not for everyone. You need a sense of humor and the ability to suspend critical thinking for a few hours. And remember, it's not hard to make a bad film...what IS hard is making a bad film that's fun to watch!
So enjoy the camp, enjoy the schlock, enjoy the 80s nostalgia and beach fun!
Then Evils of the Night will be a night & a movie to remember!
Regards & Happy Viewing :)
This is another one of those movies where you find yourself asking "how on Earth did the people who made this movie talk these actors into doing this?" Not because the movie is inherently bad--it is, but producers, directors, and casting agents talk marginal actors into doing bad movies all the time--but because the quality of the actors, as a ratio to the quality of the film, is stunning.
A group of aliens (in what looks like a Toyota Corolla without wheels) come to earth and take over a hospital on an island known for summer-break partying. They need platelets from young humans in order to elongate their own lifespans. To this end, the aliens, headed by Drs. Kozmar (John Carradine) and Zarma (Julie Newmar), recruit two local mechanics, neither of whom has much in the way of brains, Fred (Aldo Ray) and Karl (Neville Brand in his final screen appearance, the poor guy). The rest of the movie is your basic Friday the 13th ripoff. One of the kids is played by Tina Louise, the rest by actors who'd either never worked before, worked only in this movie, or, in one memorable case, was trying to make the jump from porn to mainstream (Amber Lynn has a minor role); who do you think survives the rather banal carnage?
Rustam--who never directed another big-screen feature (for obvious reasons)--seemed unsure whether he wanted to make a softcore film or a horror film, and the end result doesn't do either very well. There's a rather surprising amount of full frontal nudity for a film made twenty years ago and given an R rating; one wonders if they traded the nudity off for anything remotely resembling realistic gore effects.Read more ›

While this isn't the greatest movie ever, and has a lot of cheesy cheesy effects, it does have a few things going for it. Read morePublished 16 days ago by taramae79
Teens are kidnapped on a beach by mechanics to supply blood for aliens. The film used aging campy actors and adult film stars for the nude scenes. Typical 80's stuff. Read morePublished 3 months ago by The Movie Guy

Set in the dark mysterious bowels of an Alien Mothership...check that lets make it downtown metro hospital and a greasy garage.Published on November 13, 2013 by 4anubisswift
This is a nice movie. Although it's slow in the beginning. Anyway, I don't expect much from a vintage. Special effects zero, but the thrill is still there.Published on September 2, 2013 by Jack Cheong (Swissnet Singapore)
This is probably the worse movie I have ever seen. Pure garbage: story & acting.Published on September 13, 2010 by Little Tex
