Night of the Demons
Angela is having a party, Jason and Freddy are too scared to come. But You'll have a hell of a time.
While conducting a seance during a Halloween party, high-school seniors unlock the demon that remains locked in the crematorium.
It's Halloween and Angela is throwing one helluva party. Jack-o'-lantern. A pig-nose Stooge. The old fool. A real party. Hull fuckin' House. Bodacious boobs. A little Rocky Balboa. A PAC-MAN ass. Sour fuckin' balls. Yummy fudge! Coors beer. Count Dingleberry. Trippy-as-fuck strobe lights. Fuckin' batteries. Rodger is white as a ghost. A mirror. Extreme concentration. Fuckin' demons. A smart chicken shit. The French Kiss of Demonic Possession. A badass portable-audio-cassette-player. Angela's Flashdance moment. Acid fuckin' rock. Tongue kissing. Your first time fucking in a coffin. Lipstick tits. A cozy fire. Bye-bye eyes. Judy's Wonderland costume. Crouching tiger flying hand. Water pipes are the shit. Brave-as-fuck Sal. A long fall. An oven. Smart thinking. Your lucky lighter. The way Rodger runs.…

What makes Night of the Demons so much fun?
It never try to be more than a horror film, and by that I don't mean it goes by the numbers, for example you don't get a killer, ten teenagers and then watch how they all get killed in different ways. Night of the Demons took an hour to set-up the characters and the story and then unleashed the climax, but by no means the film feels slow, actually is very well pace and fun.
Another aspect from the film that stand out is the make-up effects, how much I…
Halloween Horror Marathon (#5)
Night of the Demons is another of those nostalgic movies I loved back in high school when the first wave of my 80's nostalgia attacked. One of my best friends never liked the schlocky cheese from the start and could never understand why the rest of us enjoyed it so much. Years later upon another rewatch, I better understand all the flak it gets, but my revisit still was a somewhat fun and entertaining one.
Basically a loose rip-off of the original Evil Dead, Night of the Demons takes place in some Anywhere, USA suburbia on Halloween night where a bunch of horny teens flock to an old creepy abandoned mortuary to do what most teens…
So that's where women keep their lipstick
Movie #3 of Exhumed Films Mad Monster Marathon was quite possibly the most fun movie of the day.
Night of the Demons is a hell of a haunted house flick where a bunch of dummies end up in a "house possessed" for a Halloween party and shit goes sour reallllly quickly. The dialogue is ridiculous, the decisions they make are ridiculous, and the effects are pretty fucking cool (Linnea and the lipstick being one of the standouts and possibly one of the weirdest most unnecessary and out of left field bits of special effects I've seen in a while).
This rag tag group of kids are so crazy that I couldn't even pick a favorite. Everyone has their own moment…
Viewed on DVD
Another one of those movies I can't believe I hadn't seen before.
The cover truly scared me as a kid, so maybe that's why I simply chose a different horror film to rent.
What made me really enjoy Night Of The Demons was Angela's dance to Bauhaus' Stigmata Martyr. The film gets considerably better from there.
A fantastic movie to get in the Halloween spirit with.
Even though “Night of the Demons” has cult status in the world of horror films, I had never actually seen the film from beginning to end. I saw clips and bits here and there but never watched it from start to finish. I can now say I’ve watched it and have to say that this movie is damn silly. The acting is super over-the-top, the demon voice is pretty laughable, the gratuitous nudity is so ridiculous that it’s hard to not shake one’s head and laugh at it and the exposition is fantastically lazy. However, the film has some decent gore effects and the camera work is better than one would think a film like this would offer. It’s a…
Sure takes a while for this one to get going. It's fine when it does.
This movie's got the absolute best Halloween vibe, and I like when it gets surreal.
A kid says "Bodacious boobs, sis" to his own sister. Another guy tells his friends to "Eat a bowl of fuck". Yeah, the 80's were weird.
Perfect atmosphere, great lighting work. The scene where the goth girl dances to Stigmata Martyr by Bauhaus is magnificent.
This movie is a marvelous slice of 1980s Halloween horror cheese. Let's be clear: the dialog is laughably bad, the acting is worse, and the scrip is just plain silly. But it all comes together with fun effects (like Linnea Quigley's infamous lipstick in the nipple scene), some decent makeup and grade school humor. This is a must-watch around Halloween when you want to throw back a few beers and have some laughs.
Strobe lights make every party better!
Night of the Demons is a film that had I watched it in my formative years, it probably would've scared me like the Friday the 13th films did. I expected a low grade, gory film so was pleasantly surprised when I actually found the film to be an effective chiller. The film is remarkably restrained for the first 40 minutes before descending into the genre conventions and even though the build up is way too fucking long for a picture like this, I thought director Kevin Tenney did an admirable job of sustaining tension well into the third act. The biggest detriment to the film is the godawful acting and dialogue; watching these wooden…
The first 45 minutes are so ao awful that any good in the 2nd half can't make up the very deep deficit. The dialogue is absolutely terrible, along with poor direction & acting. It's so off I shake my head constantly and claw my eyes out over bizarre character motivations & dialogue. I know this is no Citizen Kane but the good make-up work doesn't push this film beyond hard to get through schlock.
I wish the teens would have been killed sooner so I could be released of Night of the Demons.
