1984’s Night of the Comet is getting a high-definition upgrade from Scream Factory. Due out this November, we have release details and the cover art for the upcoming Collector’s Edition Blu-ray / DVD release:
“SCREAM FACTORY invites loyal fans and movie collectors to feast on sci-fi gory goodness and high-camp spills from 80s when Thom E. Eberhardt’s end-of-the-world cult classic NIGHT OF THE COMET Collector’s Edition Blu-ray+DVD combo pack finally lands on home entertainment shelves everywhere on November 19, 20013. This highly entertaining fantasy classic debuts for the first time on Blu-ray™. Featuring anamorphic widescreen movie presentation, NIGHT OF THE COMET Collector’s Edition boasts newly rendered retro-style artwork, exciting bonus content, and a reversible wrap with theatrical key art and more!
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!”
