Night Angel is a 1990 American horror movie directed by Dominique Othenin-Girard and produced by Emerald Pictures. This movie revolves around an evil spirit that assumes the disguise of a beautiful young woman, so it can seduce and kill men. This spirit is the representation of Lilith. The role of Lilith is played by the actress Isa Jank, known as Isa Andersen in this film. Lilith begins a killing spree, which comes to the attention of the head of a fashion magazine, Rita, (Karen Black) as all the victims are employees of the magazine. Craig, (Linden Ashby) the staff photographer, finds himself caught between Lilith and Kirstie, (Debra Feuer) Rita's sister. As the murders of the magazine's staff turn to the various models on staff, he can't help but notice that Lilith is always close by to the murders when they occur. When she starts dictating staff policies and directions, he fully believes that Lilith is something else and tries to stop her.

This movie is a classic 1980s horror movie full of the time's fashions, hair styles and acting. It's not the best example of a film about Succubi, as it mainly focused on the typical, for the time, blood and gore aspects. It does however, not shy away from some adult situations that include full female and rear male nudity, graphic violence, some adult language and two sex scenes.

Plot

From the dawn of history, she has plagued mankind. Many a mother has wept for a baby found dead in its cradle. Many a man has spurned true love for an eternity in her hell. The Babylonians built statues to honor her. The Jews carved amulets for protection from her evil. By many names is she known, from Kali in India, to Pele in Hawaii. She was created from dust when Adam was created, but no restful peace in dust will she find. She is Lilith: the temptress, seducer and destroyer, harlot of demons and enemy of love. And she shall stalk us forever, walking in the shadows, sowing the seeds of discontent, reaping a harvest of souls.

Pricelessly awful---buy this for your own MST3K collection, and make your own rude comments! A horror movie set in 1989, when really big hair and shoulders were still in fashion for women, it details the progress of a sinister, beautiful female bisexual demoness/supermodel ripping her way through the staff of a "high fashion magazine". People make a lot of inadvertently funny proclamations about "art" and "love" and "desire". Every time the art director hero changes emotions, he clutches his head (watch for it and toast with beer or cocoa). The Obiwan Kenobi character that saves the day is a bag lady/voodoo priestess (I kid you not). Cheer when the ghastly gofer guy and the receptionist are done in. Mourn the passing of the fashion excesses of the '80's, the last time in history truely bad taste was acceptable and profitable. Enjoy!
