FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Night of The Demons (Blu-Ray release party, director & cast in person!)

PRESENTED BY SCREAM FACTORY. Co-presented by Shock Till You Drop.

“Eat a bowl of f***! I am here to PARTY!” A crimson-soaked synthesis of everything that was great about late-‘80s horror, Night of the Demons is a blast of high energy. Using the time-honored premise of teenagers looking for kicks at a spooky house, director Kevin Tenney draws from the same horror-comedy well as Evil Dead 2 and Return of the Living Dead. Here, it’s all about the gags, the gore and the good times: on the night of Halloween, ten teens decide to bust out the kegs (and the boners) for a throwdown/séance at an abandoned funeral parlor, which works out for them about as well as a Dukakis presidential bid. What sets Night of the Demons apart is its female horror icon in the form of possessed weirdo Angela — and the infamous scene involving scream queen Linnea Quigley, her boobs and a seriously strange application of lipstick doesn’t hurt either. You owe it to yourself to to catch this one in glorious, goryous 35mm — one of the best of its era, and rarely screened. Director Kevin Tenney & makeup effects artist Steve Johnson, along with cast members Donnie Jeffcoat, Linnea Quigley, Cathy Podewell, Amelia Kinkade, Hal Havins, Jim Quinn and Billy Gallo, will all be here in person for a Q&A before the film — plus, Scream Factory giveaways!
Dir. Kevin S. Tenney, 1988, 35mm, 87 min.
