Also entitled Halloween Party, Night Of The Demons is a first in a short lived teen-horror franchise series of movies based around Halloween. The typical teen horror of, who is dating who, who is having sex with who, who is the demon possessing now! And how will this teen we are screaming at the screen to die, going to be killed off?
A classically bad 80s teen don't stay in the haunted house you idiots horror, where you are just waiting for the kill scenes. (Note: Nudity usually means there's a kill coming up very soon.) Though there are some fun and imaginative kill scenes, and it does feature one of the ultimate 80s scream queens Linnea Quigley. Still Night Of The Demons is what it is, a cash-in churned out formulaic horror flick.
Now as fans of such flick know, there is nothing wrong with formula if all the ingredients are there. And with this piece of schlock horror they are. A wonderful vintage ride into a world when horror was good clean fun, and not some self-referential trying too hard idiocy.
A full-on horror romp, with some hysterically imaginative death scenes. You should check out the lipstick scene with Linnea Quigley! A classic twist on the so bad-its-good 80s teen slasher movie.
