The '''''Night of the Demons''''' franchise is series of four horror movies originating from {{the eighties}}.

Released in 1987, the original movie features a group of teens having a halloween party in the abandoned funeral parlor. Soon enough, demons within the house are awakened after a sťance gone horribly wrong and they start possessing the party-goers one by one.

The film got two sequels in the nineties, the latter being a DirectToVideo release. A remake was completed in 2009 and was released in September 2010.

[[SimilarlyNamedWorks Not to be confused with]] the 1957 Jacques Tourneur film, ''Film/NightOfTheDemon'', or the 1980 [[VideoNasties Video Nasty]] of the same name.

When Shirley asks her if fellatio counts as a mortal or venal sin as a joke, Gloria, keeping her cool, says she isn't familiar with the word and then asks Shirley to explain to the whole class what "fellatio" means.

* PungeonMaster: Angela.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Sister Gloria in the sequel. She looks out for Melissa's well being and acts as a ParentalSubstitute to her, is always looking to stomp out bullying regardless of where it's coming from, and she always puts AlphaBitch Shirley in her place.
