Tuesday's Overlooked Film: Night of the Demons (1988)

The second Tuesday's Overlooked Film of the Countdown this year is the 1988 movie Night of the Demons.

The night is Halloween night, as several offbeat young adults meet at an abandoned mortuary (always a bad idea). Their arrival on Halloween night, a night in which evil spirits can have their way, as we know, gives the damned demons of the place a chance to have some fun with their unsuspecting partygoers. General mayhem and murder ensues.

That's the plot right there, but a lot of entertainment is derived from this simple premise. The special effects are well done, the scares legitimate, and the humor is witty without overwhelming the horror aspects of the film. Night of the Demons is considered a semi-classic, and it's easy to see why.

You can see for yourself, as the film is below for your Halloween amusement. Enjoy!
