Night of the Comet

Perhaps too many films have been tarred with the brush known as "It was the '80s," but Night of the Comet is one of the most '80s-genre films ever made. The sci-fi horror-comedy's satirical concept deals with a comet that reduces a great deal of the world's populace to red dust, except for a handful of survivors and a number of zombies. Strange and hilarious, it answers such questions as, "What would you do with a whole mall to yourself?" And "Why is it a good idea to make sure teens know how to handle semiautomatic weapons?" Though the film vanished quickly at the box office when it first came out, it's since gained a loyal cult following from video and many a cable showing. Check out Cinema Overdrive's presentation of the film with plenty of classic trailers, along with a minimalist video game-inspired print (adjacent) for sale in the lobby. —Zack Smith
