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

I think it's the film's ability to embrace its own zaniness that has cemented Night of the Comet's legacy in modern horror as by far one of the most inventive cult classics to have been spawned during the 80's.

An ingenious, rather enchanting Reagan-era museum piece

What really makes Night Of The Comet such a joy isn't the nostalgia rush it provides, but the two central characters. These girls just get on with it, dealing with the apocalypse with resourcefulness, crackerjack wit, and machine guns.

The irreverence at the perceived end of the world constitutes Night of the Comet's biggest selling point: borrowing some of the cheekiness that George A. Romero used so well, and making it the main dish rather than the garnish.

A superb apocalyptic tale that's surpassed its decade trappings.
June 6, 2007
A successful pastiche of numerous science fiction films, executed with an entertaining, tongue-in-cheek flair that compensates for its absence in originality.

Campy end of the world movie. Funny in places, but I'd rather see a serious "comet" movie.

When most of the people of the Earth are dehydrated into pink dust, will girls still just want to have fun? 'Night of the Comet' answers that question in the affirmative, with a flourish of candy colors, short skirts, MTV beats & 'teenage comet zombies.'

It feels like an homage to everything, as its likable heroines slowly wander through a movie wasteland filled with familiar landmarks
