Night of the Creeps Slithers to DVD

The Good News is Your Dates are Here, the Bad News is They're Dead

Earlier this month the news was reported that Fred Dekker's other piece of eighties greatness is finally making its way to DVD, after years of petitions and questions from fans. After the years it took to get Monster Squad, and then to hear nothing on the Creeps front for another two years, I began to wonder if we'd ever see it! No word on a Blu-Ray release yet, but we do know there is an HD transfer that has been used on cable television already. The word is there will be commentary and deleted scenes, including both endings. My VHS copy was beginning to wear pretty thin, so this is good news for me! Look for the DVD in October, just in time for Halloween.

If you've never seen Night of the Creeps, you are missing out on one of the best horror flicks of the 1980s. Tom Atkins plays a hard-nose cop looking for a little revenge on an alien parasite that zombifies its host. It's campy fun for the whole family! Think of Shivers meets Revenge of the Nerds and you've got a pretty good idea of what this movie is all about. Check out the IMDb page here. And, really, when the movie comes out, if you have not ever seen it, please do yourself a favor and watch it. Especially if you are a fan of Monster Squad. You're gonna be thrilled.
