Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

Scream Factory's presentation of Night of the Comet should please its legion of admirers with a wealth of entertaining extras produced specifically for this Blu-ray/DVD combo release. The discs boast not one but three commentary tracks that provide a vast amount on the picture's conception and execution. Leads Catherine Mary Stewart and Kelli Maroney provide a breezy overview of their performances on their track, as well as the challenges in maintaining the picture's eclectic tone, while director Thom Eberhardt focuses largely on production anecdotes, most notably the struggles inherent to all low-budget features and the differences between the original idea and the completed product. That's not to say that Eberhardt's comments are strictly business--he offers a lively and entertaining track that should prove both entertaining and informative to Comet scholars, as will the set's third track by veteran production designer John Muto, who mentions some of the more eclectic credits on his CV, including Forbidden Zone and Galaxy of Terror, as well as mainstream efforts like Home Alone. Stewart and Maroney are also featured in a half-hour interview segment that touches on their own long careers in films and on television, while costar Robert Beltran and special effects creator David B. Miller (A Nightmare on Elm Street) are featured in their own brief interviews. Fans of Beltran's work in the cult favorite Eating Raoul will be happy to hear the actor's reminiscences about that project and his reunion with star Mary Woronov in Comet. A theatrical trailer for the film and two galleries of promotional and production stills round out this enjoyable combo set. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

It’ s the first comet to buzz the planet in 65 million years, and everyone seems to be celebrating its imminent arrival. Everyone, that is, except Regina Belmont (Catherine Mary Stewart, The Last Starfighter) and her younger sister Samantha (Kelli Maroney, Chopping Mall), two Valley Girls who care more about fashion trends than the celestial phenomenon. But upon daybreak, when the girls discover that they’re the only residents of Los Angeles whom the comet hasn’t vaporized or turned into a zombie, they do what all good Valley Girls do...they go shopping! But when their day of malling threatens to become a day of mauling, these gals flee with killer zombies and blood-seeking scientists in hot pursuit!

Now, I'll be upfront. I love "Night of the Comet." It's a movie that intrigued me almost 30 years ago (yikes), and I still get much pleasure from watching it today. I suspect that it is also a movie that will generate many 5 star reviews from those eager to embrace its nostalgic charms. But let's be honest, too. 30 years ago, this was a solid B-movie lark with no pretensions, that's why it was discovered and beloved (largely with the advance of cable TV). As an enjoyable romp, it hit all the right marks as a popcorn movie, but it was never great art. Those who loved it then will likely still find much to appreciate. I am, however, going to be cautious in my appraisal for modern audiences checking this out for the first time. I still think many will get a kick out of it, but it might be a film best approached with modest expectations.

Set in the near future, "Night of the Comet" follows a couple of sisters in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. In the aftermath of a comet's orbit, earth's citizens have largely been reduced to red dust. There are few survivors (those shielded by steel in some way). Others, who were partially exposed, roam the city having taken on the countenance of flesh eating zombies. Tough minded Reg, played by Catherine Mary Stewart, and her cheerleader sister, Kelli Maroney, aren't pushovers, though. Using a natural survival instinct, an aptitude for weapons, Valley Girl sensibilities, and a love of shopping--these two are a force to be reckoned with. Robert Beltran joins them as a trucker and potential love interest. It seems that an underground facility of scientists has also survived (led by the sublime Mary Woronov of "Eating Raoul" fame). Arguing about whether or not to round up others who made it, their motives may be suspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valley Girls Save Civilization! May 6, 2004
By Cambel
Format:VHS Tape
It's the end of the world, and whats a girl to do? Well if you're Regina and Julie, two cute Valley girls, when you aren't fighting the disintegrating zombies that are the remains of humanity, you are hitting the closest Mall and picking out some sassy outfits. (Best line in the movie, when the younger sister asks the older which outfit she should take and the sister responds, "That one, it'll stay in style longer")
The movie starts off with a space scene and captions that explain a huge coment is going to be making a close approach to earth. It will put on an amazing light show....one that hadn't been seen in over 60 million years, about the time the dinosaurs disappeard. Then it goes on to say, some people noticed this coincidence "Then shows a bunch of people in white lab coats sealing themselved in behinde a massive underground door" then states "But most didn't" and flashes to wild crowds dressed up in their finest 80's party clothes screaming and waving signs that say "We Love the Comet"
Needless to say this movie does NOT take itself seriously and is all the better for it. Staring some of the same actors from the classic dark comedies "Eating Raul" and "Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills" this movie is a lightweight, goofy, comic gem well worth seeing!

First saw this film on one of the movie cable channels in the late '80s and immediately fell in love with it. The movie is completely without pretense, and the cast members all turn in memorable performances. The movie is just fun, fun, fun, with a minimal amount of `Hollywood' gore but plenty of thrills. If you like your sci-fi a little more down to earth, you'll like "Night Of The Comet." Three thoughts in closing: 1) That's not Cyndi Lauper singing "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," but it sounds pretty close, 2) My favorite quote: `I'm not crazy, I just don't give a f---!' 3) I'd like the movie even if my initials weren't DMK--fans of the film will know what I'm talking about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80s entertainment
the plot runs all over the place, with plenty of twists and turns but no real cohesiveness to it.
It is however, and very enjoyable film if you're into classic 80s sci-fi.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time
Terrible! Unless it was meant to be spoof of bad SF movies, this was the sort of loser that any of the production staff would cringe to have on their resumes.

Another "end of the worlld" movie. Not a lot of survivors which is unusual. These days, end of the world movies seem to have more survivors than victims. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a little fun
Entertaining but no mind building or mind expanding work here. Just a couple of hours of mindless fun. But generally not harmful. And that is a positive.

5.0 out of 5 stars did not disappoint
I've been a fan since I was little, and was so excited that Kelli and Catherine did a full commentary, plus more! The extras alone are worth it.
