Catherine Mary Stewart & Kelli Maroney in Night Of The Comet.

Pros:zombies, valley girls, end of the world.

Cons:Cindi Lauper, that's actually about it!

The Bottom Line: This is 80's pop-culture defined. They have everything in here, all mixed in with a great zombie horror/sci-fi/comedy!


The Belmont sisters are the last women on Earth! A great, underrated movie of it's era, Night Of The Comet is a hilarious romp through the adventures of two sisters who survive a comet that wipes out all of humanity (well mostly).

Catherine Mary Stewart (The Last Starfighter - such a promising young actress, I wonder what went wrong?) plays Regina Belmont, a valley girl type who survived the comet's deadly results by staying with her boyfriend in a movie theatre all night.

Kelli Maroney (Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Chopping Mall - Basically became a Scream Queen and I haven't really seen her in much since. Too bad, she's a cutie.) plays Cheerleader Samantha Belmont, she survives by running away from a drunk stepmother and sleeping in a shed.

After the two girls realized what has happened to them they get quite upset about the situation and don't know what to do. But wait! What do all teen girls like to do when they are upset? Let's go shopping!

With a Cyndi Lauper 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' musical soundtrack running in the background, our two heroines run around the mall trying on all sorts of lingerie and clothing. Eventually they run into security. How can this be you may ask? Well, it appears that some people that were protected when the comet passed by became zombies! The reason for this of course is because they left the door ajar, or a window slightly open.

So now the girls know of the massive threat upon them. They get some automatics and go target shooting ("Daddy would have gotten us Uzi's." A sarcastic Samantha states). Now they are prepared for everything.

But wait! Robert Beltran (Star Trek: Voyager) enters the picture, and he isn't half bad (well at least not a zombie anyway)! Like most sisters, they argue over him until well, some scientists show up and take them away to kill them. I know what you are saying, 'Why would scientists want to kill them?' Well it appears that our beloved scientific community are just as guilty as those zombies who left the windows half open! They left the vents going. Anyhow, because they are scientists they were able to figure out a way to prolong their transformation into our hated zombies by draining all the blood out of normal people. Kind of a 'survival of the smartest' attitude I suppose.

The battle between the hated 'evil' scientists and our lovely teenagers ensues. Who will win? What will happen to humanity? Tune in to find out. It's a silly eighties flick that I keep close to my heart. Nothing has topped it yet.
