Night of the Creeps is part of a long line of horror, comedy, trash, cheap effects, and even feel good humour that came out in the mid 80's.
Creeps delivers as many of these type of movies had the uncanny ability to do. The acting is poor at times and the movie takes some time to get going, but the second half of the film is so 80's trash over the top- were talking zombie cat here that it more than makes up for it. Repeated viewings actually do the movie justice, there is a healthy plod of gore, and if your a child of the 80's you will instantly get the references.
Even good old Dick Miller has a standout cameo but the guy that steals this movie is the one and only super cool
Tom Atkins. If oscars were given out for being in 80's trash movies then Atkins would deserve his one for Creeps.
He probably has the best one liners in movie history all wrapped up in 90 mins or so.
In fact the only negative I can think of is the awful DVD cover, try and find the original 80's cover it's way better. Also they shot two endings to the movie, I prefer the unused one with Atkins and motherships.
