A group of young shopping mall employees stay behind for a late night party in one of the stores. When the mall goes on lock-down before they can get out, the robot security system malfunctions, and goes on a killing spree.
A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.

It's the first comet to buzz our planet Earth in 65 million years, and everyone seems to be celebrating its imminent arrival. Everyone except Regina Belmont, and her younger sister Samantha, two Valley Girls who care more about fashion trends than celestial phenomena. But upon daybreak, when the girls discover that they are the only residents of Los Angeles whom the comet hasn't vaporized or turned into a zombie, they would do what all Valley Girls do - they go shopping.

Kelli Maroney improvised the Uzi line when the weapon jammed for real. Director Thom Eberhardt told the cast to react to any unexpected occurrences in character, since time and budget were tight and they needed to avoid retakes. See more »
In the beginning of the movie, Regina is playing a Cabaret style Tempest game in the theater lobby. The next morning the game is a full size upright cabinet version. It's supposed to be the same game because of the high score mistake already noted. See more »

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 ****
