Probably the best thing about this DVD release of Evils of the Night (1985) is the wonderfully sleazy and ridiculously lurid cover art which, by the way, was also used to promote the film during its original, theatrical release. It's also interesting to note the artwork, at least on some of the posters, was slightly different than what you're seeing on the DVD case, specifically in terms of the woman portrayed and her overdeveloped flesh globes, the element missing here being a pair of oversized nubbins proudly pointing upward, straining to break free of the woman's flimsy top. Produced, directed and co-written by Mardi Rustam (Psychic Killer, The Bad Bunch, Eaten Alive), the movie features, in no particular order, Aldo Ray (The Violent Ones, The Green Berets), Julie Newmar ("Batman"), John Carradine (Hillbillys in a Haunted House, The Astro-Zombies), Tina Louise ("Gilligan's Island"), and Neville Brand (Stalag 17, Eaten Alive) in his very last role. Also appearing is Karrie Emerson (Chopping Mall), Bridget Holloman (Stoogemania), Tony O'Dell (The Karate Kid, "Head of the Class"), and adult film star Amber Lynn (Hot Tails, Poonies, In and Out in Beverly Hills).

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.

This movie is as campy as camp gets, it's a B-Movie pure and simple. That's what makes it great and a lot of fun to watch. Anyone who watches the trailer or looks at the movie poster should have an idea of what to expect imo

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 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 :)

Evils of the Night (Mardi Rustam, 1985)

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.

Take one look at the cast and you know that you're in for something painful. The film opens with four overage teenagers at a midnight excursion in the woods enjoying such common things as underwater fellatio and doggie-style sex. They are abducted by a race of aliens (led by Tina Louise, Julie Newmar and John Carradine) who remove their blood platelets which will increase the aliens' lifespans. The aliens set up shop in an abandoned hospital and pay bumbling garage mechanics Neville Brand and Aldo Ray (in career busting performances) gold coins to help them with the abductions. The aliens need 10 people between the ages of 16 and 24 within the next two days to complete their experiments. The grease jockey duo kidnap and hold three teenagers in their garage while they wait for the aliens to contact them. Brand gets horny and tries to sexually assault one of the girls. She fights back and Brand power drills her through the stomach. He goes after the other girl and ends up crushed under an hydraulic car lift. After seeing his buddy lying dead with a bloody sucking chest wound, Ray assaults the poor girl and gets an air hose shoved in his ear by another girl who has escaped from the alien hospital (she shoves it in his right ear and blood spurts out of his left one!). This severely disturbs Ray, who grabs an axe and chops the hospital girl to pieces. The departing aliens kill Ray with a green death ray as payment for a job well done. EVILS contains plenty of gratuitous sex and nudity in its first 30 minutes, but goes for a deep slide after the story kicks in. It's painful to listen to the actors speak such ridiculous line as: Brand: "I sure would like to hump one of those girls!" Ray: "Why not? We've done it before!Read more ›
