IT WAS THE LAST THING ON EARTH THEY EVER EXPECTED.
Life can be tough when you re a Valley girl. First, there s making sure you re on time for pep squad practice. Then there s having to live under the same roof as your bitchy stepmother who, you suspect, is making it with Chuck from across the road. And then, of course, there s having to keep on the lookout for the occasional marauding zombie hungering after your flesh!
Eighteen year-old Reggie (Catherine Mary Stewart Weekend at Bernie s, The Last Starfighter) misses out on the event-of-a-lifetime when she ditches watching the comet in favour of copping off with the projectionist at the cinema where she works. But this turns out to be a wise move when, the next day, she discovers that the entire population has been reduced to piles of red dust leaving only Reggie, her sister Sam (Kelli Maroney Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Chopping Mall) and a handful of other survivors to fend off the roving gangs of glassy-eyed zombies.
Taking its cue from classic doomsday movies such as The Day of the Triffids and The Omega Man (and with a healthy dose of Dawn of the Dead thrown in for good measure), Night of the Comet is an irresistible slice of Reagan-era B-movie fare which features Cyndi Lauper dance-alongs as well as some truly gravity-defying bouffant hairstyles... Well, it was acceptable in the 80s!

Yes, it was made in the eighties, therefore you have to put up with the obligatory big hair and bushy eyebrows. Basically... a freak comet turns 99% of the world’s population to piles of dust and clothes, leaving only two gun-totting (and yet slightly dappy) sisters to fend for themselves in a world (not very full of) zombie and rapists (or people who want to just simply do strange things with your precious blood).
Luckily for our two lycra-clad heroines, help is on hand by loveable trucker, played by Star Trek Voyager’s ‘Chakotay’ (probably his only other career-defining performance to date!). So... the three of them have to generally have to fight for their lives for the best part of the movie. And, for the record, the ‘best parts’ are the first and third acts. The middle segment is kind of taken up with the three of them hanging around a deserted radio station, which is a slight drop in pace when compared to the rest of the film.
This film is pure cheese. There will be plenty of people out there who will only see it as outdated and silly. And it is. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a fun watch at the same time! So, if you want to spend an hour and a half of your time with a couple of girls whose hobbies include playing arcades, casual sex and Uzis, then give this one a go. You may just spot a zombie in there somewhere.
