Zombies, exploding heads, creepy crawlies… you’ve never had a night like THE NIGHT OF THE CREEPS.
An immensely fun creature feature from director Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad), Night of the Creeps takes on the charmed premise of taking Animal House and turning all the frat boys into zombies controlled by alien brain slugs. With the biggest party night of the year in chaos and all of the jocks in town turned into the living dead, only a buttoned up indoor kid (Jason Lively of Rusty Griswold fame) and a drunk, wiseass detective (Tom Atkins of being awesome in everything he’s in fame) can stop the slugs, kill the jocks and save the girls on Sorority Row. Get your guns ready, cause it’s Miller time.
Part of Nitehawk’s March LIL’ TERRORS series.
