Night of the Comet – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 19

Night of the Comet

Night of the Comet is an odd movie, difficult to quite categorise. A comet passing by the Earth turns most of humanity (and the rest of the animals) literally to dust. Of those that survive, some are affected by a degenerative condition turning them into homicidal maniacs. Against that background, the movie follows two sisters adapting to the new world. The story’s lighthearted in parts, only to turn unexpectedly dark every now and then. I might not call the movie outright good, but it’s charming. The actors manage to make the characters quite likeable, which goes a long way towards keeping interest up when the plot fails to do so.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
