Gone – Online Character RPG based on NotC

posted 10 April 2015

Harvard Film Archive

"What would you do if suddenly everyone on Earth was gone? No explanation. No bodies left behind. Family, friends, neighbors...simply vanished. The unexpected happened when the Earth passed through the tail of a comet. 99% of the world's population disappeared overnight, leaving nothing but piles of clothes. Not only did humans disappear, but so did almost all life on the planet. Those who remain now struggle to survive in this barren and empty new world."

Gone is a newly created online Role Playing Game (RPG) based on the events of Night of the Comet but set in modern day rather than 1984:

"Our story takes place on July 19th, in Los Angeles, California, the morning after the comet. Only 1% of the world's population is left. That's 1 out of every 100 people. Everyone else is just...gone. All that's left of them is a pile of clothes. Some people witnessed it happen. Their friends and family just... vanished out of their clothes right before their eyes. Other people awoke to a whole new world. Friends, family, even pets and animals, were gone.

Because of everyone disappearing so suddenly, the world was left in chaos. Airplanes went down because the pilots driving them disappeared. Cars wrecked when their drivers suddenly vanished. Stoves were left unattended, leaving houses to burn. Electricity can only last so long with no one around to run it. The internet will slowly fade out, as well. Cell phones are of no use because the towers went down. Overnight all the luxuries we once had were taken from us.

What happened, you find yourself asking. Why were you left behind? Where did everyone go? Were they taken by aliens? Is this the Rapture? Will you look for answers or just try to survive? Will you help others? Or will you only look out for yourself? The choice is yours. After all, with almost everyone gone, no one is around to tell you what to do. There are no laws, no police."

Head over to the Gone website and register if you wish to join the game.

Behind the Scenes Make-up Polaroids

posted 30 January 2015

Spoiler Room logo

Billy Synder 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 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.

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.

  4. Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Tami Holbrook
