Series of Limited Edition ‘Night of the Demons’ Posters Pays Tribute to Original Art

Angela is having a party. Jason and Freddy are too scared to come…

When it comes to horror movies that deserve to be watched every Halloween season, Kevin S. Tenney’s Night of the Demons is no doubt near the top of the list. Released in 1988, the film centers on a Halloween party that takes place at an abandoned mortuary… it’s all fun and games until a demonic spirit awakens.

In celebration of the film, artists Chris MacGibbon and Juan José Saldarriaga have partnered up for a series of limited edition 11″ x 17″ Night of the Demons posters, which will be available exclusively at the Lunaris Records booth at this weekend’s New Jersey Horror Con – along with original props and press materials on display.

Each design is limited to just 40 prints, and they’ll be available beginning Saturday.

The posters pay tribute to the film’s classic art, and you can check them out below!

    This movie was cool. Second not so much… third have Ed Furlong.

    • NoGutzNoGory

      Ed Furlong wasn’t in the third one…he was in that shitty remake in 2009.

      • MrX13

        I actually enjoyed that remake. It didn’t have the heart like the original but still entertaining to watch.

        • Aaron King

          Agreed. They did a good job of honoring the original, while still making it their own.

        • Necro

          Yeah I enjoyed the remake

        • david

          I agree with you guys. A lot of people hated the remake, but I thought it was pretty good. It was kind of like an 80’s horror movie, but made in 2009. I mean what isn’t there to like about it? The movie has boobs, butts, guts, and sluts. That’s my kind of horror movie.

          • MrX13

            Haha I like that, boobs, butts, guts, and sluts! Perfect way to describe that movie! SOLD!

          • david

            Thanks MrX13. I think a lot of modern day horror movies would do well if they followed that formula. Unfortunately most modern horror films only have plenty of guts, and are severely lacking when it comes to boobs, butts, and sluts.

          • MrX13

            Cuz that’s what us horror fans want to see: blood and guts along with boobs, butts and sluts. Maybe a decent story along the way as well

        • Flu-Like Symptoms

          Same here. I remember expecting a trainwreck and getting a watchable movie instead. When I reflect back on the remake era of the 2000’s, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Night of the Demons (2009) are two that immediately come to mind as pretty decent, especially when compared to the other shit we got over the years.

          • MrX13

            I totally agree with you! TCM and NOTD remakes were done really well. Compared to Dawn Of The Dead and others, these smaller budget remakes are really good. The Crazies is another one too!

          • david

            I never saw the original The Crazies, but the remake was great. Would you recommend the original?

          • MrX13

            To be honest, it’s been forever since I’ve seen the original. But I just saw the trailer and it’s questionable. I’d see it though

        • david

          The remake was pretty good, but it was missing some of the funny dialogue that the original had. I don’t remember the original that well, but would you guys describe it as a horror comedy?

          • MrX13

            I wouldn’t call the original a horror comedy because there wasn’t a lot of laughs nor giggles in the movie. I just remember it was scary. Also I didn’t like the fact that they were trapped in that house. But I definitely recommend it.

            Maybe now because I’m 40yrs old and compared to being a kid watching it, it might be somewhat funny only because it was an 80s movie.

      • MeeGhoulz

        Wait… what’s the third then!?! Can’t really remember… 2 was the frat house party. But 3…

        • Saturn

          3 was also known as Demon House (well it was in the UK) and was the one with the people possessed basically turning into whatever masks they were wearing after an accidental shooting at a convenience store.

          • MeeGhoulz

            I’m afraid… I’ll have to watch it now! Thanks!

        • Dylan Gutierrez

          II took place at a Catholic school.

          • MeeGhoulz

            Yeah,yeah… it’s all coming back to me now! With the kickass nurse! Perhaps I should marathon them to watch 3…

        • MrX13

          I totally forgot about NOTD 3. I just saw the trailer and I haven’t see that one in forever.

          • MeeGhoulz

            That bad?

          • MrX13

            From the looks of it, yeah. But give it a shot either way

  • MODOK

    Wait, what’s she going to do with that lipsti…oh. Oh my.

    • MrX13

      in the nipple it goes and viola, disappears!!

  • Demented Daniel

    I enjoyed the sequel, mostly because of the Morbid Angel song being played during Angela’s dance.

    • Necro

      Hell yeah!

    • david

      You mean the remake? The one that came out in 2009 with Shannon Elizabeth playing Angela was a remake, not a sequel.

      • Demented Daniel

        No. Night of the Demons 2.

      • Demented Daniel
      • Schwifty

        The song playing in the scene you’re probably thinking of in the 2009 remake was a Type O Negative song (“Black #1”, I believe). The song playing during a very similar scene in NIGHT OF THE DEMONS 2 was by Morbid Angel. Easy to get confused. We won’t even get into WITCHBOARD, THE CONVENT, the WITCHCRAFT series, the DEMON series or, God help us, those WITCHOUSE movies Charlie Band made in the early 2000’s.

        • david

          Thanks for clearing that up for me Schwifty. That’s definitely an interesting choice for a song to have her dance to.

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      Rock on. Love that scene too. That was the scene that forever endeared me to Angela/Amelia Kinkade. I talked to her about it when I met her in 2014. She was super cool with me and I even made her cry a little. Got a big, long hug for my fanboying. Love that woman.

    • Saturn

      • Demented Daniel

        Bingo!

  • MrX13

    One of my all time favorite 80s horror movies ever!! I really need this on bluray and introduce this one to my son! Yes I said my son, he is 12 (13 in Dec) and he actually likes to watch “old” horror movies that I used to watch as a kid.

    • Necro

      Oh you absolutely have to show him parts 1 & 2!

      • MrX13

        Oh I plan on it! October is next week, we plan on watching several movies, like Night Of The Demons 1&2, Night Of The Creeps, Pumpkinhead, Nightmare On Elm Street, and more.

        He looks Hellraiser 1 & 2, and liked Chopping Mall. So he is getting there!

        • MeeGhoulz

          Night Of The Creeps!!! Great one! The version with the real ending is even better!

          • david

            Night of the Creeps is one of the best horror movies of the 80’s. I’m surprised that they never made a sequel, or that it hasn’t been rebooted.

          • MeeGhoulz

            I end up watching a phony sequel that was made in the 2000s, I think. It was indie, not even worth calling it a fan movie, terrible, horrible!

          • david

            What’s the real ending of Night of The Creeps? I have it on DVD, but now I’m wondering if the version that I own has the real ending.

          • MeeGhoulz

            Not to spoil it if your version is not the same I saw more recently, in the end Cindy see the dog and crouches to pet it, lemme stop here so you can tell me which version you saw… this end was the first I saw when it was aired on tv back in the 90s… the “real” ending I watched years later.

          • david

            I think that the ending that you saw with the dog is the same one that’s on my blu-ray copy of the movie. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the alternate ending. It’s a shame that they never made a sequel because the movie flopped at the box office. It certainly became a cult classic though.

          • MeeGhoulz

            Well, since you purchased the disc you are entitled to seek alternative ways of watching the real ending. It’s totally worth it! And here I tought they would put both endings on BluRay!

          • MrX13

            Wasn’t the original ending is when Cynthia looks down at the dog and then the slugs come out at the camera? But I did like how the cop is walking down the street, burnt to a crisp, and then falls down releasing the slugs into a cemetery. Then the spaceships has a spotlight looking for them.

            I liked both endings but kind of wished a sequel

          • MeeGhoulz

            Yeah, it’s the one I saw first, I said “real” ending cuz it’s way more interesting when we consider a sequel…

          • MrX13

            I liked both endings and a sequel could have picked up from either. However, back then that actress was a real cutie and I didn’t want anything bad happen to her. So, honestly, pick up from the cemetery…haha

          • MeeGhoulz

            Yeah, loved her girl next door looks!

          • MrX13

            Oh yeah, especially her

        • david

          Chopping Mall is another awesome 80’s horror gem. There will never be another era of horror like the 80’s.

          • MrX13

            No there wouldn’t, it was the best growing up in the 80s

          • david

            The 80’s were a great era for horror, but I can’t say the same about the music. I think that rock music was much better in the 90’s than in the 80’s. The 90’s kind of sucked when it came to horror movies, except for Scream.

          • MrX13

            Yeah because I think that most horror movies had rock songs played and they all sounded the same. The 90s had a variety of songs that played throughout horror movies.

  • Aaron King

    That first one is fucking badass! Nice job.

  • Necro

    My friend and I two days ago watched parts 1-3 and then the 2009 remake. I mean you can’t beat those fucking movies!

    • Saturn

      Aye, obviously the original movie is the best of the bunch, but it’s sequels and remake are pretty worthy of repeated viewings.
      A strong, pretty underrated, franchise – which I look forward to new movies in the franchise.

      If you haven’t seen it, check out The Convent, which is strongly influenced by Night Of The Demons – it’s a pretty fun ride, and you’ll never be able to listen to Lesley Gore in the same way ever again…

      • Necro

        Absolutely! Yeah I’m waiting to see a new film for this franchise. In all honesty part 3 was a total joke and should’ve stuck to what made the other two sequels good.
        ‘The Convent’ huh? It doesn’t sound too familiar, but then again I could’ve seen it and don’t remember. I’ll look into it and let you know.

        • Saturn

          The Convent is a similar premise to NOTD in that a bunch of teenagers decide to party at an old abandoned Convent, but end up unleashing an unspeakable evil. It’s a little more tongue in cheek (not in a disrespectful way) and it seems that those involved probably had a blast making it – Bill Moseley and Coolio have small parts in it as officers of the law.
          It also stars Adrienne Barbeau – so a few faces you’d recognise.
          It was one of the earlier movies of Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers, Big Ass Spider!, Lavalantula), so if you like his stuff you’ll probably love this.

          Here’s the trailer :

          I personally have a great time with it whenever I watch it.

          • Necro

            Cool looks boss! I know now I haven’t seen it, but I will now! Thanks Saturn!

          • Bloodkry

            I love The Convent. Such a cheesy fun horror flick.

          • Saturn

            Glad to see some love for the movie – anyone (in my circle of friends) I’ve suggested it to have loved it.

        • david

          I don’t think they’ll be making any new Night of The Demon movies Necro. I think there were plans to make a sequel to the remake called After Party, but the Kickstarter campaign that was launched in order to fund the making of the movie was unsuccessful.

          • Necro

            Yeah I try convince myself of maybe one day or hopefully, but the more I think about it the more I agree with you.

  • Yann Louis

    Wait… what’s the third then!?! Can’t really remember… 2 was the frat house party. But 3…

  • Lilian Hubert

    You mean the remake? The one that came out in 2009 with Shannon Elizabeth playing Angela was a remake, not a sequel.

  • Timon van Buskirk

    Wait, what’s she going to do with that lipsti…oh. Oh my.
