One of the releases Gorgon Video teased at MondoCon over the weekend was Evils of the Night, a 1985 sci-fi horror film directed by Mardi Rustam that is returning to DVD on October 14th.
Full of sex, lasers, synth-pop, feathered hair, bikinis and axe wounds, Evils of the Night is a pivotal example of Reagan-era teen fantasy fodder.
Genre favorites John Carradine, Julie Newmar (TV’s Catwoman) and Tina Louise (Gilligan’s Island) star as a gang of alien scientists who want the life-giving blood supply of horny teens camping out near their secret lab.
Veteran Hollywood stars Aldo Ray and Neville Brand (in his final film role) play a pair of bumbling mechanics hired by the extraterrestrials to kidnap the teens for experimentation – with botched and bloody results. Adult film legends Amber Lynn and Crystal Breeze co-star.
Evils of the Night was previously released on DVD by Shriek Show.
