Mondo Mondays - NIGHT OF THE COMET
NIGHT OF THE COMET
dir. Thom Eberhardt
1984, 35mm, 95 min
After the tail of a passing comet has turned everyone directly exposed to its radiation into red carbon dust, two teenage sisters awake the following morning to discover that they are two of the last people on Earth. In addition, those who were inside, and therefore not directly exposed, are disintegrating slower, becoming flesh-eating zombies in the process.
The girls travel to a local radio station where they meet another survivor, Hector, a truck driver who was lured to the station, like them, in the belief that the transmission was live. It isnt, but the girls use the station in an attempt to attract help.They attract the attention of a group of scientists, who, realising that the last time the comet passed Earth, the dinosaurs disappeared, had locked themselves away in their underground facility until it passed.
Hector leaves the girls to fend for themselves while he goes back home to see if any of his family have survived the comet. But can they survive in the zombie infested world until he returns?
