Night of the Comet, 1984, 35mm, 95mins, Rated AA

Night of the Comet is a fun sci-fi/comedy about the end of world, starring Canadian actress Catherine Mary Stewart (The Last Starfighter) and Robert Beltran ("Chakotay" from Star Trek Voyager). Made in the mid-1980's and filmed in classic 80's style (think neon, leg warmers and big hair) it poses the tongue-in-cheek question that only a B-movie can answer: what if a mysterious comet turned most of the human race into dust or zombies, and left the remaining survivors to fend for themselves in the post-apocalypse? The answer is just the kind of film you may have seen at the drive-in back in 1985.
