Now here’s a strange little oddity. A group of aliens come to Earth where they hire a couple masked men to go out and bring teenagers back to their lair. Once there, the aliens drain them of blood so that they can live.
EVILS OF THE NIGHT is a pretty bad movie but at the same time it has such a fascinating cast that you can’t help but be slightly entertained by the madness as long as you’re fans of the actors. You’ve got TV legends Tina Louise and Julie Newmar playing the female aliens in need of blood. You’ve got John Carradine playing the person that they follow. Then you’ve got Neville Brand and Aldo Ray playing a couple no-good characters. Five famous and well-known stars surrounded by some young talent with many of them having adult titles to their credit.
Mardi Rustam produced some well-known films ranging from Al Adamson junk to Tobe Hooper’s second film. It’s clear from this movie that he wasn’t meant to be a director but what’s really strange about this film is the fact that it looks like a decade too late. If you’ve seen Jerry Warren’s FRANKENSTEIN ISLAND then you know that film seems to be about thirty-years too late and that the director didn’t progress with the times. The same can be said here because this is just such an old-fashioned film that you can’t help but wonder who it was aimed at.
Of course, the director was at least smart enough to throw some blood to the viewers and there’s quite a bit of nudity early on. There are also some pretty silly sex scenes where the women are totally naked and being nailed by men who are still wearing their pants. I’m not sure why but I’ve always found this to be quite funny. The only saving grace to this picture is the fact that it have five well-known faces.
