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.

4.0 out of 5 stars You guys missed the point! May 18, 2009
Format:DVD
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 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 :)

1.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe I watched the whole thing. July 10, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very hard R-rated film for the time it was made. January 21, 2014
Format:DVD
This is easy to follow, low-budget, and is simply a trash flick that you can just turn off your brain and watch. It begins quickly with a spaceship landing, and the purpose of the film is just to keep the film simple with sex, nudity, and violence. It's about some human space aliens who land and take refuge in a hospital. They then recruit a couple of garage mechanics to help them capture humans. The movie was made with a small cast, and it basically takes place in and around the forest; some scenes on the beach and other scenes in and around the woods, and there's some indoor stuff like when some people are tied up and held hostage in a shack and some scenes at the hospital. A lot of the film takes place at night, and I thought that the film was usually fast-paced and lively. The film has a good amount of violence, but it doesn't have a lot of gore overall. I've never read anything about this film being cut to receive an R-rating, but there's a scene when a girl is killed by a drill that looks like it may have been shortened. It made me wonder if there's more to this scene on the original negative. One of the things that's most memorable about the film is that the sexual content is very strong for an R-rated film around the time it was made because this was when the MPAA started censoring a lot of content from horror films like the FRIDAY THE 13TH films. Some women get fully nude, but the film is dark and this makes it difficult to see a lot of full frontal nudity. However, there's some strong sexual stuff and a good amount of nudity. One scene that is worth mentioning is a lesbian type sequence when a couple of topless women are rubbing lotion on each other on the beach; scenes like this weren't the norm for horror flicks around that time.
