Night of the Comet was his second directorial effort (he also wrote the screenplay), a satirical sci-fi/horror with nods to old 1950's and 1970's dystopian sci-fi films all be it with a more lighthearted tone.
This movie follows two valley girl sisters in a post apocalyptic Las Angeles, after the strange comet passes by Earth everyone who was outside it seems has been reduced to dust just leaving there clothing behind.
They get saved by a research crew who have somehow been researching this dust disease thing, Alpha Bitch acts all heartless about wanting to save kids and the research crew splits up our two heroines only for Alpha Bitch to euthanize one of them, ostensibly to save them from the disease.
