Night of the Creeps on DVD FINALLY !

Night of the Creeps (1986) GREAT MOVIE ON DVD FOR THE 1ST TIME
I had to get a bootleg copy of this fron England a few years ago but it's finally coming out on DVD October 27 2009 and available for order HERE from Amazon for $13.99 .
"The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is... they're dead."
In this campy chiller, a college couple at"Corman University" 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.

TRIVIA : Grafitti on the wall of the men's room where J.C. is trying to escape a number of slugs reads, "Go Monster Squad!". The Monster Squad (1987) was also directed by Fred Dekker.

The movie the house mother is watching on TV is Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959).

All the last names of the main characters are based on famous horror and sci-fi directors: George A. Romero (Chris Romero), John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper (James Carpenter Hooper), David Cronenberg (Cynthia Cronenberg), James Cameron (Det. Ray Cameron), John Landis (Det. Landis) and Sam Raimi (Sgt. Raimi).
Night of the Creeps (1986)


  1. Love Night of the Creeps and can't wait to finally own it on legit DVD! I have a bootleg of Creeps, as well as a boot of Monster Squad that had Japanese subtitles! Luckily Monster Squad did well enough in its release to garner the interest in Creeps.

  2. Night of the Creeps is on of my all time favorite zombies/alien slugs films ever!

    It has all the right elements for a cool horror film, plus its cheesy fun. Plus it stars one Mr. Atkins. So its instantly a kick ass film.

  3. i love night of the creeps and i love horror and scary movies and the most scariest movie for all time for me is the ring. Great post.

  4. I was so happy that fans of this could get the DVD version they deserved. It's hard for me to believe that the makers of "Slither" claim to never have seen this. I wish we could have seen more genre stuff like this from Fred Dekker, but I guess we'll always have "Monster Squad"
