The best B movie ever made,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Night of the Comet [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I think Mr. Dunn has lost the point about Night of the Comet. NOTC doesnt take itself seriously, it doesnt need too. It has presented a modern day take of all those B movies from the 50's with over the top monsters / villians / leads.
The two leads are superb in their roles, they seem to relish they are playing a couple of airheads, and act the part accordingly. How can you not love a Mac 10 toting cheerleader who is more concerned with the country music playing in the car, than the zombies about to mutilate her outside.
If the movie had taken a more serious note, this film wouldnt have been so much fun to watch, to see the zero budget special effects, to listen to the cheesy 80's songs, and as for the end, yes it all kind of neatly plays out, but sometimes you dont need a severed head in a box to make a film work. Plus isnt it nice to know that DMK was one of the survivors too.
Enjoy the film folks, since although it may not be 28 days later, it works just fine.

Completely agree! It was deliberately entirely the only option they had given the budget involved and it works because of that and not inspite of it.

One of my favourites, it has a unique quality all of its own. I've yet to watch another film that quite does what this does. The leads playing up to the airhead roles is perfect example. Its also like the film never really gets started but also never really stops wherever it did start, giving it a certain who cares just watch attitude which kind of plays into the apocalyptic storyline. I love this film, its just one of a kind and I now have the reg 2 version after a long wait.

It is nice to know that DMK survived, and I really enjoyed his line at the end of the movie when told "Great car!" responds with the utterly perfect "Thanks - I have 23 of them....".
