dressed up like a lady: Night of the Comet

Night of the Comet

Looking for a delightfully bonkers horror comedy to enjoy this Halloween season? Well SHIT MAN, you're in luck because this GEM called Night of the Comet is entirely available on Youtube. It's a clever, wacky b-movie from 1984 about two valley girl army brats dealing with the aftermath of the Earth's a semi-Apocalyptic encounter with a comet. It includes shit like an Emma Watson lookalike and a machine gun stand-off with crazed shopping mall stock boys. 

I'd bet hard currency that Robert Rodriguez is a huge fan of this movie, and I say that because of its fun-loving, campy tone -- not just the fact that it features a theater called the El Rey.


  1. OMG!!!! This is one of my favorite movies ever. EVER. I'm in the process of putting my sister's surprise 40th birthday gift together, which basically means filling up a box with the movies we watched a zillion times growing up, and this is at the top of the list. I saw it in a discount bin at a gas station maybe ten years ago? I still don't know why I didn't buy a copy. Also, huge girl crush on Sam. Too bad my daughter is only seven, she'd get a kick out of this but it might be a little bit too much for her just yet.

    Also - I think I have my Hallowe'en costume figured out. Go, Rebels!
