'It's Coming From Inside the House!': Watch 'Night of the Demons' With MoPOP + Special Guests Drea Washington & Tommy Pico

'It's Coming From Inside the House!': Watch 'Night of the Demons' (1988) With MoPOP + Special Guests Drea Washington & Tommy Pico

It's Coming from Inside the House!, the Museum of Pop Culture's horror film watchalong series, is expanding its list of 100 Horror Films To See Before You Die. Working with our horror community we'll dig back into the list, see what we missed, and explore how we can start the work of updating the list every year to include the best that the horror genre has wrought from the depths of darkness.

Each watchalong we'll have a new guest pick a film to watch that they feel deserves a spot on the list as it expands, and they'll join the watchalong to make a case for its inclusion.

At 7 p.m. PT this Friday, September 25, MoPOP Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford is joined by special guests Drea Washington and Tommy Pico, hosts of Scream, Queen!, a podcast about scary movies from people not typically depicted in scary movies. Drea and Tommy chose this month’s selection, Night of the Demons (1988), a film bursting with '80s vibes and gory practical effects about a teen party that goes awry after demons are conjured and begin to possess the partygoers. 

Scream, Queen!

Here are a handful of program elements that you can expect to see: 

  • Pre-film introduction with Robert Rutherford, MoPOP's Manager of Public Engagement, and special guests Drea Washington and Tommy Pico, hosts of the Scream, Queen! podcast. 
  • Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay; here’s some inspiration for your extended at-home Bauhaus dance scene! 
  • Cocktails, mocktails, and beer pairing recommendations 
    • Cocktail pairing: Actual Demon Possession never looks as attractive as its traditional cocktail namesake. 
    • Mocktail pairing: Promiscuity is the name of the game in a lot of horror films, and Night of the Demons is no different. Let the spirit of romance guide you as you concoct this Lucky Devil mocktail. 
    • Beer pairing: Grab a can of Lesser Ritual from Holy Mountain brewing in Seattle, a hoppy pilsner that’ll help you conjure up a wicked party. 
  • Chat with Robert, Drea, Tommy, and other fans during the film 
  • Post-film discussion on why Night of the Demons deserves a spot on our list of 100+ Horror Films to See Before You Die
