Critic Reviews for Night of the Comet

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (4)

  • ... a cheaply made science-fiction movie that enters the atmosphere without ever igniting.

    Jan 2, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A successful pastiche of numerous science fiction films, executed with an entertaining, tongue-in-cheek flair that compensates for its absence in originality.

  • Suspecting that all this plus the cheerleaders might fail to excite, the film-makers also pack in twenty songs.

    Top Critic
  • 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.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 4/5
  • [Night of the Comet] is boring, unamusing and nearly as convoluted as Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life.

    Jan 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The bastard offspring of an entire drive-in era, Night of the Comet is one of the most unique motion pictures from any age, and it's a wonder that more modern filmmakers haven't used it as a cinematic template.
