Night of the Creeps
Location la: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Fred Dekker. 1986, 88 mins. Digital projection. Tom Atkins, Jason Lively, Jill Whitlow, Allan Kayser.College becomes the stuff of nightmares when slug-like alien creatures transform an entire campus of coeds into zombies in this campy chiller written and directed by 1980s horror staple Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad). Though not as well known as other zombie films of the decade, Night of the Creeps merits revisiting thanks to its ecstatic, genre-bending celebration of B-horror films of the 1950s spiced with signature ’80s gore.
