Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Night Of The Comet (1984) Two sisters, high school seniors in the early 1980s, awaken one morning to blood red skies and the realization that the human race has been wiped out. It becomes apparant that anyone who was not surrounded by steel when the Earth recently passed through the tail of Haley's comet has been reduced to a pile of red ash (the trace elements of human chemical makeup.) They encounter a rebellious Native American man and take over the air waves at a local radio station in an attempt to get help. Unfortunately, they attract the attention of a group of scientists who knew what the effects of the comet would be. They hid underground in a steel laboratory, but idiotically left the vents open. Now, as various survivors of the comet who were only partially surrounded by steel are decaying into flesh-hungry zombies, the scientists are attempting to come up with a vaccine made of the blood of people who were not infected by the comet. Thus the trio must fight their way past not only roving packs of the cannibalistic dead, but also outsmart a pack of scientists desperate not to become that way themselves.

More Movie Taglines:
  • It was the last thing on earth they ever expected.
  • They came. They Shopped. They saved the world!
  • The comet's coming, and the world will never be the same.
  • The last time it came the dinosaurs disappeared
Movie Quote(s):
  • Willy: If bachlorette number one isn't out here in half a tick I'm gonna ice bachlorette number two, got it?
  • Samantha: You were born with an asshole, Doris, you don't need Chuck.
  • [When her MAC-10 jams while target shooting] Samantha: Daddy would have gotten us Uzis.
  • [after shooting one of his friends] Regina Belmont: You're crazy! Willy: I'm not crazy, I just don't give a fuck.
  • Regina Belmont: Have you ever been hit with Dots, Mel? Milk Duds? Those things hurt!
Movie Trivia:
  • As Regina emerges from the movie theater the morning after the comet, a poster for Death Race 2000 (1975) can be seen on the theater door. Mary Woronov appears in both films.
  • The production designer, John Muto, used what he describes a "comic book" sensibility for the film. Characters were given specific colors, with the bad guys in blues and grays and the girls in colors. Regina's colors were deeper than Sam's to reflect that Regina was more intellectual than Sam and that Sam was wackier than Regina. For example, Sam's cheerleading outfit is made in magenta and turquoise to make it really stand out.
  • The original working title for the film was "Teenage Mutant Horror Comet Zombies".
  • When cheerleader Kelli Maroney (Samantha Belmont) is playing at the radio station as a disk jockey, she says that she is taking requests from "all you teenage mutant comet zombies". This was the working title of the film.
  • The LP that Sam tosses over her shoulder is the soundtrack to "Valley Girl", which would become, for a short time, one of the most sought-after albums of all time.
