No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A successful pastiche of numerous science fiction films, executed with an entertaining, tongue-in-cheek flair that compensates for its absence in originality.
A good-natured, end-of- the-world B-movie, written and directed by Thom Eberhardt, a new film maker whose sense of humor augments rather than upstages the mechanics of the melodrama.
There's no question Night of the Comet was made in the 1980s, and that's a positive for people who have enjoyed similarly silly sci-fi flicks like Return of the Living Dead, Night of the Creeps and other delightfully airy efforts from that decade.

It feels like an homage to everything, as its likable heroines slowly wander through a movie wasteland filled with familiar landmarks
Night of the Comet is that rare movie that's effective as both a science-fiction movie and a parody of a science-fiction movie.

A glorious B-movie that requires a certain amount of appreciation of the genre if you're really going to enjoy it.
Campy end of the world movie. Funny in places, but I'd rather see a serious "comet" movie.
Entertaining little exploitation flick
