"Congratulations on the first anniversary of your fan site! I'm so amazed and thrilled that "Night of the Comet" has had such a resilient life with such strong, determined and unique fans. When I first heard that fans were trying to get the movie on to DVD I thought "well now isn't that nice...", but you guys DID IT!! I am so honored to be a part of something that has so much support! Plus, now I have "Night of the Comet" on DVD!
When we shot "Night of the Comet" it was somewhat of a labor of love. It was a low budget shoot with a quirky little script. I was attracted to the Reggie character because of her strength and independance combined with the innocent naivete of a young, simple girl thrown in to extrodinary circumstances. We had a great time filming the movie but I don't think it really occurred to anyone that it would build the fan base that it did and take on a life of it's own and continue to all these years later. People (especially men around 30 years old) still stop me today and tell me how the movie impacted them a teenage boys. I love it!!
You are all truly amazing and I thank you for your love and support of this movie. If I accomplish nothing else in this life, I can say I was a part of a knarly teenager zombie movie called "Night of the Comet" and it was loved by the most amazing fans and will live on into eternity! ...or until a comet comes along and destroys life as we know it...! Lots of Love, Catherine Mary Stewart"
