Night of the Creeps (1986) Review:

Fred Dekker didn’t make many movies, but both of his horror/comedy are hugely entertaining (the other one isThe Monster Squad). The theme of Night of the Creeps is the combination of an alien movie, with little alien slugs that take possession of people, and the zombie genre. Some might want to see it as a comedy version of Cronenberg’s Shivers, but I would prefer to describe it as the blood brother of The Return of the Living Dead, for both movies are extremely similar in terms of humour. So if you like the latest, do not hesitate to watch this one.

The fun of the 80’s is everywhere. The two main characters are your usual virgin nerds, but they have great personality and are both quite endearing. The movie never takes itself seriously and should succeed at diverting every type of audience.  Of course, it is not perfect and it does feel a little long at times. The story is also nothing extraordinary…but it is not stupid either. Thereee is a real soul in that movie, something that makes it unexpectedly fun to watch. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed The Return of the Living Dead or Dead Alive.
