Plot: Two sisters navigate California after a comet turns the world’s population into either ravenous zombies or lifeless dust.
I rarely describe things as cute, but that’s exactly what Night of the Comet is—a cute, little horror film that doesn’t take itself too seriously but isn’t totally cheesy. Throw in the fact it was released in 1984, and I can totally understand its cult following. Night of the Comet also features several female leads, a refreshing dynamic in the horror genre, especially for its time. If you’re looking for a fun adventure that showcases girls taking charge, Night of the Comet is a perfect solution.
