NIGHT OF THE CREEPS

Night Of the Creeps Movie Review

This film starts out on a spaceship where a couple aliens lose a capsule of…something. This lands on Earth in the 1950’s and the contents posses a guy who is eventually stored in a cryogenic chamber. Flash forward to 1986 and a couple nerds trying to join a fraternity accidentally release the man--who still has alien slug-like creatures in his brain--and soon these creatures possess everybody on campus.

Oh boy

Yes, this is a very campy, at times funny, horror film, complete with exploding heads, more horror references than even I could count, zombies, aliens, lots of gore, horrible one-liners, and even a brief clip of Plan 9 From Outer Space, the ultimate campy b-horror film. All in all, this is all pulled off pretty well here. The acting is pretty bad for the most part, as is the dialogue, but that all plays in nicely to this ode to the b-movie. This is not a great movie, but it is good for what it is, and I would recommend it to horror fans, especially those who enjoy the movie Slither.
