By Laurence R. Hunt TOP 500 REVIEWER

When I'm working hard, I can't watch a Bergman, Oliver Stone or Kurosawa movie. It takes too much effort, and it can be too much like work. I haven't been able to watch a Woody Allen movie in probably a decade. I don't do angst well when I'm overworked.

By way of contrast, B movies are great when my brain is tired.

Interestingly, a good B movie can be entertaining for its creativity, as well as for an assumed level of mindlessness.

Night of the Comet, released in 1984, is a great example of that. The ability of the production team to create this classic "last people on earth" science fiction effort on a budget of $500,000-700,000 is in fact quite admirable.

The premise of the film is highly tenuous, that a comet that last visited the earth at the time of the dinosaurs' extinction 65 million years ago is now returning, and taking out life on the planet all over again. Of course, a tenuous premise is part of what makes a B movie interesting. Where can the director/writer go with this thin thread connecting the elements of the story?

Fortunately, the film's writer and director (Thom Eberhardt) pulls off this feat quite successfully.

After the comet's tail has basically turned almost all life on earth to calcium dust, Eberhardt captures the results in an imaginative low-budget fashion. Somewhat obviously, the highways of Los Angeles are deserted - in fact overly deserted, given that some people must have been driving the highway when the comet's toxic tail swiped our planet. OK, we can suspend disbelief about that. (Mr. Eberhardt notoriously used his own Mercedes as one of the abandoned vehicles in the film.)

Then we witness a series of electronic timers setting off various bits of machinery that will operate for no one.

4.0 out of 5 stars An 80's gem Jan. 3 2012
Format:DVD
Out of the mist that was the 80's came some downright awful films- grade B and lower, that I just could not get enough of. "Night of the Comet" was for me the perfect little movie. A comet shower turns everyone to dust except for our 2 heroines, sisters who had escaped the comets deadly wrath by sleeping in metal walled rooms. They wake to find everyone gone, and find the best way to deal with this problem is to head to the mall. Catherine Mary Stewart is the older sister, but it's Kelli Maroney as Samantha that steals the show. The film has aged a little (check out the hair!) but the tongue in cheek way the director Thom Eberhardt handled things you just know all involved had a good time, right down to the cheesy effects. Put your brain in neutral and enjoy!
