This is an easy going 80s mild horror film that's full of the hairstyles, costumes and regalia of the period. Survivors of an apocalypse that don't seem to worry about growing food, medical care etc.. The two girls and the bloke starring are pleasingly attractive, and any film with a cheerleader firing a Mac 10 machine gun goes straight on my 'keeps' list.

Night of the Comet is a cheesy, camp 80's low budget movie but I have always had a soft spot for it since first renting the movie as a teenager. As usual with Arrow Films releases this is top notch in terms of blu-ray quality presentation and extras, if you are a fan then this edition is a must.

At long last this cult masterpiece from the 1980s makes it to dvd. I have no idea why this film isn't better known as it has everything the fan of horror and sf could want. The plot is familiar in which a few likeable characters wake up one day to find that they are the last people left on earth. A comet passed by in the night - the one that wiped out the dinosaurs - and has killed everyone except the lucky few who happened to be hidden away behind steel walls. Those who didn't get killed have been turned into zombies. The plucky survivors band together, but then danger arrives from an unexpected direction...

This film stands out from the many others, some big budget, that have tried this end-of-the-world formula. It does so with a great collection of entertaining leads featuring Catherine Stewart and Kelli Maroney along with a pre-Trek Robert Beltran and a memorable cameo from Geoffrey Lewis. The story delivers a great deal of tension from not only the zombies but the horror of the situation while not taking itself too seriously. It also has some surprising twists and has a satisfying ending that pushes past the usual formula of wondering who'll survive and who'll get killed horribly. In short this film comes over as effortless in the way it's been made and is a joyful piece of entertainment that is a text-book example of the sleeper movie.

Catherine Mary Stewart & Kelli Maroney are well cast to play air-head shoppers in this B-Movie 'Horror'. I say 'horror' as this film is not quite a horror as it was intended (or I assume it was), but more of a science fiction movie with some horro and comedy thrown in. There are a few jumpy scenes and a few tiny little scares in there, but this is not a full blown horror movie. Considering it's age the zombie make up is pretty good as well, which is an added bonus for such an old B-Movie. An excellent science fiction movie - shame it's never had a UK region 2 release.

Great 80s horror teen comedy. The re-release cover from Arrow doesn't really do it justice, but neither did the original artwork. Expect Romy & Michelle meets Dawn Of The Dead.

If you like the old B movie style films you will enjoy this,a bit of harmless fun that should not be taken too seriously.
