NIGHT OF THE COMET / Thomas Coleman and Michael Rosenblatt Productions - 1984
It's Friday Fright with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Here's a story about two sisters that wake up the day after a comet passes near Earth to find that everybody in Los Angeles has been turned to dust by the comet except them, a hunk, some zombies and occupants of a secret underground government installation.
Eegah!! sent over an informative sound clip with some music and video game noise for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by the zombie, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a taste of... NIGHT OF THE COMET!
The citizens of LA go into the streets to watch the amazing event. How lucky am I?!.. I got to witness the Geminids meteor shower in 1950, and, I'm telling you, there were hundreds of meteors flashing by going in every direction, and, it lasted hours!!! Unless you were there, you could just never imagine what it looked like!..
See, everyone watching turns into a pile of orange dust, just like I said!..
Catherine Mary Stewart plays cute survivor, Regina. Catherine Mary was also in these fine flicks... POWDER HEADS, THE BEACH GIRLS, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, DUDES, WORLD GONE WILD, WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S and THE PSYCHIC, and, has a movie currently in post-production.
Here's our first glimpse of one of the zombies, not bad! At this very moment, it's deep sixing Regina's sleeping bag mate who went out to take care of some business.
Mary Woronov plays an infected military doctor. Mary has 115 acting credits including parts in SUPERBOY, SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT, DEATH RACE 2000, CANNONBALL!, ROCK 'n' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL, ANGEL OF H.E.A.T., BLOOD THRATRE, HELLHOLE, TERRORVISION, CHOPPING MALL, DICK TRACY and MOTORAMA.
This is probably the creepiest moment, when this zomboid dude attacks Regina's lil' sister!
Regina is captured by the secret military and gets interrogated by this guy... Stalemate! She tells him that she's a Cancer and he thinks that she's sick!
A peek into one of the weird, dimly lit operating rooms complete with infected troopers.
Infected guys at the installation start turning in zombies, making escape even more terrifying!
The rains come and sweep all the toxic dust into the gutters, later gator!
