A sleeper at the time of its release in 1984, Thom Eberhardt's Night of the Comet has built a small cadre of fans thanks to its breezy performances and blend of comedy and tongue-in-cheek science fiction. Catherine Mary Stewart and Kelli Maroney are thoroughly likable as a pair of San Fernando Valley sisters who find themselves completely alone after the arrival of Halley's Comet reduces their affluent community--and most of Los Angeles--to dust. Their subsequent nonstop shopping spree is soon interrupted by predatory zombies, as well as a sinister scientific cabal (led by cult favorites Mary Woronov and Geoffrey Lewis) with designs on the girls. Stewart and Maroney are terrifically game as the heroines (especially Maroney, whose flair for bubbly comedy was never given another chance on screen), and Robert (Star Trek: Voyager) Beltran is also on hand as a fellow survivor and romantic lead. Fun for '80s enthusiasts and sci-fi fiends who don't mind a little fizz in their end-of-the-world scenarios. -- Paul Gaita
One of my favorite movies from my teen years. Most of the time when I review a film from my teens I wonder why I ever liked it but NOTC isn't one of them.Published 19 hours ago by michael
Terrible. Bad on so many levels, we wouldn't know where to start.
This thing was bad even for the '80s. Terrible story line (NO story line! Read more

I remember watching this movie back in the 1980's at the theater with my friends and it was a good funny sci-fi type movie. Brought back old childhood memories so I had to get it.Published 28 days ago by Dos

|The Reason It Isn't on DVD||
He must have had a little too much of The 80's, because it Was released on Laserdisc! I actually saw it at Tower in Sherman Oaks many years ago, but didn't buy it! I am kicking myself still, because it was in Letterbox!!!!!!!

I have this on VHS from back in the day. It was recorded off of HBO. What the hecks the hold up with putting it on DVD? I'd at least love some actors commentary too!
