Evils of the Night is a 1985 low-budget science fiction/"porno horror" film[1] starring Aldo Ray, Neville Brand, Tina Louise, John Carradine, and Julie Newmar.[2][3]


Vampire aliens Dr. Kozmar (Carradine), Dr. Zarma (Newmar) and Cora (Louise) recruit two dim-witted mechanics (Ray and Brand) to abduct teenagers living in a college town and bring them to a rural hospital. There, the aliens drain them of their blood, which they need to stay young.[4]

Reviews were generally negative. A reviewer at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote, "Evils of the Night is an attempt to introduce an appalling new genre: The Teen Sex Comedy-Slice 'N' Dice Thriller-Martians Have Landed Combo."[5] Roger Hurlburt at the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel wrote, "Simply stated, Evils of the Night is a deplorable motion picture."[6]
