Product Description

In this campy chiller, a college couple, in 1959, see an object plummet to Earth like a meteor. The boy accidentally swallows a space-slug that shoots out. In 1986, two freshmen roam the campus and stumble across the corpse of the boy who swallowed the space-slug. Once thawed out, the corpse comes to life. Special Features: Commentary with Writer/ Director Fred Dekker Cast Commentary Birth of the Creeps Cast of the Creeps Creating the Creeps Escape of the Creeps Legend of the Creeps Tom Atkins: Man of Action Original Theatrical Ending Trivia Track Deleted Scenes "Night of the Creeps, Fred (The Monster Squad) Dekker's spoof/tribute to '50s-era horror and science fiction, died an unheralded death at the box office back in the slasher-centric '80s, but it developed a passionate cult following in the ensuing decades; aficionados and first-timers alike will be thrilled with this DVD release, which underscores the film's loopy charms with a wealth of fun supplemental features. The premise is prime Creature Feature material--in 1959 an alien experiment containing vile, sluglike organisms that possess their hosts crashes to Earth, where one of the slugs takes over a young Lover's Lane habitué; flash-forward to 1986, when hapless nerds Jason Lively (brother of Gossip Girl's Blake Lively) and Steve Marshall discover the corpse, cryogenically frozen in their college lab, and accidentally free it as part of a prank. The body unleashes its extraterrestrial passenger, which proceeds to infect the student population at a breakneck pace. Dekker juggles his humor and horror with a fair amount of skill, though for every inspired moment, there's a groaner or two (it was the '80s, after all); the presence of genre vet Tom Atkins (The Fog, the 2009 My Bloody Valentine) lends a proper degree of grit. Though not perfect, Night of the Creeps was--and remains--a refreshingly quirky alternative to the franchise-heavy studio horror of the decade." --Paul Gaita

Night of the Creeps is a must-see 1980s cult classic that almost seems to get better with age. With its unusually impressive blend of horror and comedy, this low-budget classic should serve as an inspiration to today's independent filmmakers. I've read that writer/director Fred Dekker wrote the screenplay in seven days, but it's as solid and witty a script as you're likely to find among films in the campy horror genre. The special effects are surprisingly good for the most part, and even the acting is solid all the way around. Dekker's love and appreciation for science fiction and horror is incorporated nicely into the dialogue, granting the film a special appeal to fans of those genres.

Way back in 1959, a pod carrying an alien experiment plummeted to the earth and - by infecting those exposed to it - caused the violent deaths of several young people before it was stopped. Things have been peaceful ever since - until a stupid fraternity prank by a young man desperate to impress a beautiful sorority girl. While Chris (Jason Lively) sort of draws the line at freeing human popsicles sealed up cryogenically for almost three decades, his gung ho buddy J.C. Steve Marshall) has no qualms about such an expulsion-deserving offense. They don't get far with the body, but they do more than enough to turn their bucolic college town into a veritable zombie killing ground. It's not long at all before zombies' heads start exploding across campus, releasing a myriad of alien worms eager to infect new hosts. As a few random murders escalate into the equivalent of a zombie invasion, only veteran Detective Landis (Wally Taylor) has any real insight into what is truly happening.

Photos from the June screening and cast reunion for Fred Dekker's "Night of the Creeps" at Austin, TX's Alamo Drafthouse can be viewed on-line and they created quite a buzz in the horror community since being posted. The films screening took place on Saturday, June 13, 2009 and the event was also taped for inclusion on the long-awaited Director's Cut DVD of "Night of the CREEPS" which Sony Pictures has finally released. Did I say Finally!

Rumors had been circulating from fans who attended the special screening that the video image shown on June 13/09 at the Alamo Drafthouse was from the actual High Definition master print with the original ending usually found only in Bootleg copies of the movie. As a fan I hoped that Sony Pictures would do this film justice and the video transfer would be pristine. After watching the movie I can state that the widescreen picture is absolutely fantastic and better than anything I expected. The audio is also presented in English 5.1 Dolby Digital but it sounded a little weak to me, so I switched to the fuller sounding stereo mix instead.

It was also mentioned that fans would get a chance to vote on-line for the DVD cover they liked best to be included for the long awaited "Night of the Creeps" DVD release so I guess this cover was the winner. Personally I prefer the Blu-ray cover instead or maybe the original cover found on the VHS copies should have been used.

Sony Pictures really skimped on the disc packaging and disc artwork in my opinion. The disc case is really flimsy with portions of the plastic missing and as far as disc artwork goes, they're isn't any. The disc is silver with the title printed on it and for me the lack of disc artwork was a big disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fromage galore! Oct. 5 2009
Format:DVD
So truthfully, I haven't seen this movie since the early 90's, but I remember watching it every single time it came on tv. I loved this glorious hunk of stinky cheese, and I'm very happy to see it finally available on dvd! If you can enjoy a campy parody, you'll like this one. If not, well...then you probably won't.

(Those 5 stars are, of course, based on my own scale of either "love it" or "hate it." There's rarely anything in between for me.)
