Night of the DemonsIt's Halloween, and school chums Angela (Amelia Kincade) and Suzanne (played by Scream Queen Linnea Quigley) have decided to throw a party for some of their fellow classmates at the old Hull House funeral parlour nearby. Having been closed for many years, following a series of brutal murders there, they think it will be the perfect setting for them.

So having broken in and set everything up, the guests soon arrive and the party gets underway. Everything is swinging along nicely, until one of them suggests that they have a séance, which is never a good idea in a horror film. Particularly one set in a funeral home on Halloween night.

Anyway, having tried contacting the spirit world, with seemingly no success, the guests notice shortly afterwards that Angela and Suzanne have started to act a bit strange. Soonafter, a hideous transformation takes place and the two begin attacking the party guests one by one, who subsequently go onto to become possessed themselves, and pretty soon the remaining guests are fighting for their lives.

Aping the basic plot of "The Evil Dead" to good effect, Linnea Quigley and Amelia Kincade are aptly cast as Suzanne and Angela and I found this to be a really fun film. I will admit that when the cartoonish intro credits came up at the start, I did wonder what I had let myself in for. But as the film got going, it soon won me over and to a large extent, the films low budget sort-off ads to its charm, which had a very "Roger Corman" feel to it.

This film may have passed you by, as it had a very limited theatrical run back in the late 80s, but its pretty easy to get hold of on Disc. If you enjoyed "Return of the Living Dead", then you should like this, as it has a similar vibe and also stars Linnea Quigley.

Overall Marks : 6/10.
