Scary Movie Reviews N
:: Night of the Demons :: 1988 :: Kevin Tenney ::
This movie is totally awesome. The soundtrack is amazing - Bauhaus, some song called “Computer Date” by the director’s brother. And the usual cast of friends who would NEVER be friends in real life: goth girl, anarcho-punk pig, Brooklyn tough guy, prep, dork, normie - everyone partying at once. It’s cheesy, it’s a little scary, it’s got super awkward sexual overtones, there are a lot of laughs, a few jumps, it’s just bananas. AND SQUIRTING EYEBALL POPPING. This is up there with my favorite movies. And the best part is, it’s actually kind of scary! It’s pretty cheesy, and a little gross, and a ton of fun.
:: Night of the Demons 3 :: 1997 :: Kevin S. Tenney ::
Wow. The intro to this movie is just too good. There’s a fireball in front of the screen, and five people (who I assume are ghosts), are flying through the world as though it’s Second Life all over again. Eventually, they get to the house, zap into the windows, then ride a gateway to hell. Anyway, the movie: some kids end up shooting a cop (as usual, amiright?!), then go to hide out in an abandoned funeral home mansion that’s filled with demons. This movie is kind of weirdly a shot for shot remake of the first one, but it’s MUCH worse, and there is a LOT more nudity. As much as I truly loved the first NotD, and was really excited to see that Kevin Tenney wrote/directed this one too, I have to recommend you pass on this stinker.
