Customaniacs.com user Dwabernath has recently posted a custom DVD cover for Night of the Comet as part of his Distaster Movie series. You can download direct from Customaniacs.com (registration and credits required).
The cover for the Argentianian release of Night of the Comet (La Noche Del Cometa) has been added to the Memorabilia section of the site. The artwork is in Spanish, however, the design differs significantly from the standard Spanish release. Note the incorrect spelling of Kelli Maroney’s name.
This month The Hellfire Video Club is diving headfirst into the beautifully comforting waters of the 1980s, with a thematically-overloaded double bill of “Night of the…” movies. Main feature is the grossly under-heralded Night of the Creeps (Fred Dekker, 1986), where Tom Atkins investigates some grisly goings on involving brain-eating alien parasites and horny teenagers. “Thrill me!” This cheeky gem delivers everything you could possibly want from a genre drive-in flick, including a perfect tagline: “The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is …they’re dead”!
Second feature sticks tightly to the ‘teenagers against the apocalypse’ theme: Night of the Comet (Thom Eberhardt, 1984) follows two valley girls as they head to the mall after all life on earth has been wiped out by a mysterious meteorite. But are they really alone?
HFVC DJs will be on hand in the bar, playing the finest weirdo 80’s B-movie muzak. Put it in your Filofax.
