Cheesy B-Movie Goodness: "Night of the Comet" on Blu-ray & DVD

A comet wipes out most of life on Earth, leaving two Valley Girls to fight the evil types who survive. A classic end of the world Sci Fi film "Night of the Comet" finds its way to Blu-ray thanks to Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory.

It’ s the first comet to buzz the planet in 65 million years, and everyone seems to be celebrating its imminent arrival. Everyone, that is, except Regina Belmont (Catherine Mary Stewart, The Last Starfighter) and her younger sister Samantha (Kelli Maroney, Chopping Mall), two Valley Girls who care more about fashion trends than the celestial phenomenon. But upon daybreak, when the girls discover that they’re the only residents of Los Angeles whom the comet hasn’t vaporized or turned into a zombie, they do what all good Valley Girls do...they go shopping! But when their day of malling threatens to become a day of mauling, these gals flee with killer zombies and blood-seeking scientists in hot pursuit!

80's nostalgia flashback with Catherine Mary Stewart, who did a lot of B-Goodness: World Gone Wild, The Apple and Nightflyers to name a few. This is a classic what if the world ended and you didn't end with it, sounds serious, but not really, this film makes the journey fun and a little dangerous at the same time. The film is definately underrated, sure one can find flaws, plot holes, and such, but if you waste time on the little things you miss the big picture, its about the fun don't take it so serious, just be entertained.
