EVILS OF THE NIGHT FINALLY BACK ON VHS December 30 2014 | POSTED BY Nicole Mikuzis
1985’s exploitation gem EVILS OF THE NIGHT makes its triumphant return to VHS this month as part of Gorgon Video’s desire to reunite genre fans with underseen films from the past. Featuring original cover art in a classic “big box” style plastic clamshell, this Special Edition of EVILS OF THE NIGHT makes the perfect addition to any VHS collection.
Directed by Mardi Rustam (co-writer of Tobe Hooper’s EATEN ALIVE), EVILS OF THE NIGHT embraces exploitation like few films of the 1980s. Shot on a micro- budget, the film was able to secure a then unheard-of cast for a feature of its size, including Aldo Ray (THE GREEN BERETS), Neville Brand (LAREDO), John Carradine (THE GRAPES OF WRATH), and TV legends Julie Newmar (“Batman”) and Tina Louise (of “Gilligan’s Island” and Dark Sky Films’ LATE PHASES).
The wildly unconventional plot follows a trio of vampire aliens (Carradine, Newmar, and Louise) who travel to Earth in search of human blood – the only thing in the universe that offers their species eternal youth. Upon arriving, they recruit two dim- witted rural mechanics (Ray and Brand) to abduct a group of even more dim-witted teenagers for their sinister harvest. Taking them to an abandoned hospital, the aliens and mechanics gleefully drain the teens of their red stuff – but it isn’t long before their evil plot is found out and the remaining kids hatch a scheme to stop them dead in their tracks! Featuring hilarious special effects and plenty of 80s splatter, EVILS OF THE NIGHT was quite appropriately dubbed a “Teen Sex Comedy- Slice 'N' Dice Thriller” by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution upon its original release there.
Featuring a stellar score by Robert O. Ragland, composer of Q: THE WINGED SERPENT and the Blaxploitation classic ABBY, this stellar Limited Edition VHS the only way to witness one of the 1980’s most absurd, carefree, and just plain crazy exploitation films!
