In this satirical sci-fi comedy, Samantha (Kelli Maroney) and Regina (Catherine Mary Stewart) are two sisters whose father was a hard-bitten Green Beret, but who've grown into typical Valley Girls. They end up spending the night in a steel-lined room just as a comet passes close to the earth, vaporizing the people in its wake. When Samantha and Regina emerge, they discover that they have the city to themselves, and they begin the shopping spree to end all shopping sprees. En route to the mall, they discover Hector (Robert Beltran), the only survivor they've found so far, and they argue over who gets the last boyfriend on Earth. However, the mall holds an unpleasant surprise -- a small army of zombified stockboys who the gals must battle using an arsenal they shoplifted along the way (while lamenting that "Daddy would have gotten us Uzis!" after a MAC-10 fails to fire). Meanwhile, a cadre of soldiers from a special military experiment have come out of hiding, but it seems that they need fresh blood to survive, and Samantha and Regina look like just the refreshment they need. Cult figure Mary Woronov also appears in a supporting role as a scientist.

NIGHT OF THE COMET (1984) is an adventure greatly entertaining for anybody able to suspend disbelief a bit (and not notice a few continuity gaffes). As with IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET (1906) by H. G. Wells, a comet's passage transforms civilization--in the movie catastrophically. Most humans are rendered a fine, red dust. Some affected survivors live for a time but decline rapidly toward death, becoming marauding zombie-like creatures for a period toward the end. The true survivors, by circumstance shielded that fatal night, are our heroes, uncommonly appealing ones--Regina and Samantha Belmont, two L. A. valley girls who center their activities around an abandoned radio station, and Hector, a truck driver they encounter. Besides avoiding zombies, the girls worry about their new life. How will they find boys? Well, at least concerns about school and tests are in the past. And the malls are always open! The sisters have their limitations but care about each other, are quick studies in wielding automatic weapons and are athletic and formidable fighters. Catherine Mary Stewart, who dominates the movie, is wonderful as the older sister, Regina. By turns fun-loving, romantic, witty, seductive, resourceful, fearful and calculating, she is convincing in all aspects and a dynamic physical action heroine hard to equal. Her sexiness remains intact through it all. Robert Beltran, the stalwart male lead, and Kelli Maroney as the younger cheerleader sister are very winning--especially Beltran. The movie has a number of good things to mention. There is a government research facility whose scientists show themselves to have villainous intentions(of course!), but their distinctive personalities are depicted economically and well. There is a brief, but truly bravura performance by Ivan E. Roth as Willy, leader of a small band of--yes--stockboys. Finally, demanding mention is a terrific song played during a romantic point in the film and over the final credits: "Learn to Love Again," written by Chris Farren. It is a duet sung beautifully by Farren and Amy Holland.
