Format: DVD
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.

There are plenty of little in-jokes and references for genre fans to pick up on. You may notice some classic B-movies on people television sets that may play off themes found in this movie. Some characters are named after genre directors of it’s time (Romero, Cronenberg, Cameron, Raimi, Carpenter, etc.) Nice little extras for people who look out for such things. I whole heartedly recommend Night of the Creeps which is an 80’s gem of a horror movie. It may thrill you.

This guy made Night of the Creeps and The Monster Squad and his career was destroyed pretty quick after that. He seems kind of bitter about it. I wish I had made only 2 amazing movies.
