It's valley girls vs. zombies and evil scientists tonight on Schlock Wars!!
Cheesy, but enjoyable satire is like the poor man's version of 28 Days Later (2002) with a big chunk of '80's vibe for flavor!
Comet eliminates the worlds population, leaving surviving sisters to fend against a group of demented scientists.
While many peg Night of the Comet as a zombie picture, and granted two or three zombies do show up along the way, this film really has much more in common with the old B sci-fi movies of the 1950s. In fact, one could make a good case that the film is meant to be a comical parody of those old schlock films, after all it does have a nice comic book feel! From any view, this is an entertaining film even with its silly moments. It manages to stir up a few chills along with the laughs.
The films cast is only decent, but their performances do hold their own. The special FX, mostly the zombies, are pretty decent. The music score is composed mainly of electronic tunes that perfect that great '80's feel!
For those seeking a bit of fun humor with their horror, Night of the Comet isn't a bad choice.
*** out of ****
