    Amazing film. Loved it since catching late on TV one night in the late 80s. Atmospheric. 12 years 9 months ago

    Young Robert Beltran may be first billed on Night of the Comet, but it's really the two girls' movie (Catherine Mary Stewart and Kelli Maroney) as teenage sisters who survive a comet that brings several kinds of apocalypse with it. In fact, I felt like the movie slowed down considerably once Beltran's character shows up and I didn't care about his subplot at all (and neither did the film, really). A subplot about survivalist egg heads is more interesting and becomes important, though it feels like each new threat just pushes the prior one out of the story, which at its worst, devolves into very stupid gun fights (somehow). My interest started out high, and dwindled as the movie went on. Its most famous ancestor is The Omega Man (though I like The World, the Flesh and the Devil in this category), and counts 28 Days Later among its descendants. Yet, it still feels like an oddity, in part because of its confused narrative, but being odd is a good thing, in my book. As a comedic take on this kind of story, it's all over the place, but not unentertaining. 3 years 4 months ago
