Director’s cut!

Though it was overlooked during the busy summer movie schedule of 1986, Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps has gone on to become a quintessential cult classic. A loving homage to the B movies of the 1950s, Dekker’s winningly gruesome horror comedy mashes up elements of atomic age sci-fi, Romero zombies, slashers, and 80s teen comedy, magically landing on a recipe for pure fun. Leads Jason Lively and Steve Marshall have a great rapport as best buds dealing with a campus infested with space slug-controlled zombie schoolmates, with B movie leading man Tom Atkins bringing the funny as the quipping alcoholic detective who finds himself caught up in the madness, leading to some of the film’s irresistibly quotable lines. A perfect summer movie, Night of the Creeps has proved highly influential, inspiring James Gunn’s pre-Guardians of the Galaxy creepfest, Slither. The good news is that we’re throwing a rare screening of the director’s cut with special guests… the bad news is that they’re dead!

Dir. Fred Dekker, 1986, DCP, 88 min.
