Night of the Comet
Thom Eberhardt, 1984, USA, 35 mm, 95 min.
In this science fiction cult favorite, a near collision with a comet causes a catastrophe for the planet, killing most living creatures. The select few humans who survived unscathed band together, looking for other survivors while having to contend with the living dead. Filmmaker Thom Eberhardt wrote Night of the Comet around the premise of “valley girls at the end of the world,” and its mix of comedy, camp, and chills is gnarly indeed.
