Thom Pace Slices CD

Happy birthday to Thom Pace. Thom was responsible for three of Night of the Comet's soundtrack songs; I'll Take the Blame (written and performed), Virgin in Love (Written and perfomed) and King County Woman (written).

Up until 2014, Virgin in Love was the only track available to fans, however, following discussions with the film's music producer, Don Perry, and the discovery of some master tapes, all three tracks can now be enjoyed.

Another version of I'll Take the Blame is available directly from Thom Pace on his CD Slices of the past and Future, available from his eBay page.

Behind the Scenes Make-up Polaroids

posted 30 January 2015

Spoiler Room logo

Billy Synder (Billy Snyder Okiboki Productions) was responsible for the cast's make-up on Night of the Comet, he recently uncovered a selection of Polaroids taken on the set and posted them to Facebook. You can see them in the Production Photos section of this site.

Because most movies are filmed out of sequence, it is common for photos to be taken on set to aid with continuity of costumes and make-up. There would have been many more Polaroids taken, and most of them would have been lost or disposed of, but we are thankful that Bill held on to these ones and was kind enough to share them with fans.

Actress Kelli Maroney (Samantha) recently recalled on Facebook that Billy liked to play AC/DC's Highway to Hell while working on set. Kelli also commented that is was common for actresses to be asked to look down for the photos so that the eye make-up could be recorded.

Fan Made Night of the Comet Dolls

Reggie and Sam dolls

Ever wondered what a Night of the Comet toy line might look like? Night of the Comet fan Jada Crockrell has made her very own Reggie and Sam Barbie-style dolls.

With the recent increase in retro action figures, maybe we can presuade some of the toy companies (MacFarlane Toys?) to do a set of Night of the Comet action figures too.

Night of the Comet Soundtrack missing tracks discovered

Night of the Comet fans are in for a real treat this month; not only has the film just been released on Blu-ray by Arrow Films, but following discussions on Facebook with the film's Music Producer, Don Perry (see News item on 17 May 2014), cassette tapes were uncovered containing some of the tracks from the film that were not included in the original Official Soundtrack release.

The newly uncovered tracks include:

  1. Making Me Blue - Jim Christopher
  2. Living on the Edge (film version) - Jocko Marcellino
  3. Never Give Up - Bobby Caldwell
  4. Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Tami Holbrook
  5. King County Woman - Doug Kershaw
  6. Eyes on You - Jocko Marcellino
  7. I'll Take the Blame - Thom Pace

Don has graciously supplied the tracks and with the help of fan René Neferuaten they are now available for your aural pleasure on René's YouTube page.

Thanks go to Don Perry and Bob Summers [Bob, as well as writing several of the tracks, produced the songs along with Don] for letting the fans hear these tracks. Please respect their wishes that these tracks are for the fans and not to be used for commercial gain.
