Sci-Fi Summer of 1986 Series Episode 6

Zombies. Exploding Heads. Creepy Crawlies. And a bonus movie review? That’s classic Now Playing

Horror comedies have a long history with movies like An American Werewolf in London and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. But in the heyday may be the mid-80s which entertained with films like Return of the Living Dead, House, and the film we’re reviewing today: Night of the Creeps.  A combination alien infestation/ax murderer/zombie film, many tropes are played with to make audiences laugh and scream.  The film died in the box office but rose like a zombie on VHS (when director Dekker was better known for his follow-up horror comedy The Monster Squad).  Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob for this bonus review to find out why Night of the Creeps is a film worth digging up!
