Hmmm, sounds a lot like a (somewhat) modern movie called "slither", which also revolves around an alien crashing, evil alien slugs, zombies and the like.

Probably based on this or something.

Great review, i never knew there was an alternate ending. Let us know if you need us to petition to get this little gem on DVD. oh and feel free to use the spellchecker, i guess you must've been up late writing this review. Get some rest, you've earned it!!!

Hurude Oct 22nd, 2008 07:09 AM

Tom Atkins rules, I love him in maniac cop what a classic!!

J. Tithonus Pednaud Oct 22nd, 2008 09:13 AM

I love Night of the Creeps. But the best thing about Night of the Creeps is that it gave its director enough credit to make The Monster Squad.

Doctor_Who Oct 22nd, 2008 09:29 AM

A true underrated classic. I love this flick.

SPINAL Oct 22nd, 2008 09:48 AM

Excellent review! Still love Tom Atkins from Halloween 3.

Can you guys please review a couple of other 1980s classics: Waxwork or perhaps Terror Train?

mbkerr Oct 22nd, 2008 09:52 AM

I think the alien fetus that shot the canister out was also possessed by the slugs. I think he had blank eyes like most of the "zombies" in this film have, and he was getting the slugs off the ship to infest other planets.

This film is classic. And I prefer the alternate ending with Atkins walking away and infesting a graveyard (could this be the unofficial prequel to Night of the Living Dead?!) than the dog infecting Cynthia. That dog should have so been dead by the end of the flick.

DeadDoug Oct 22nd, 2008 10:39 AM

Man, I have only seen the real ending once, every time I have caught this movie it was the zombie dog ending for me! THis was recently shown as a midnight movie here in NYC, but sadly, I missed it. I have been praying for it to hit DVD for years now!

Colonel Flagg Oct 22nd, 2008 01:17 PM

Reminds me a little of "The Faculty". Good review, good cheese.

Thrill me.

Relaxing Dragon Oct 22nd, 2008 01:58 PM

It's Miller time!

Loved this movie when I saw it on late night TV (which was far too long ago), and I keep hoping for a DVD release of it. Great choice of review, and completely right on Detective Cameron; he's the man, no doubt about it.

Also, the ending I saw was the graveyard one, and while I also keep reading that it's the alternate ending, since it seems so common the dog one seems more like an actual alternate ending.

Relaxing Dragon Oct 22nd, 2008 01:59 PM

Also, I second Spinal's request for a Terror Train review (or I'll just have to wait patiently for a People Under the Stairs review).

El Sammo Oct 22nd, 2008 02:10 PM

How about a review of "Elmo in Grouchland"? I know it's not a 'traditional' horror film, but it scares the SHIT out of me!

Julio Oct 22nd, 2008 04:45 PM

Never trust those leeches. They are pure hell.

Jquick Oct 22nd, 2008 08:27 PM

When a cop pulls a Rorschach on some dead-heads, you know you're seeing something special.

Ferrit Oct 22nd, 2008 09:38 PM

Screaming like Banshees....hahaha...

Love this movie. Slither was okay - but this was so much better. Maybe because of Tom "Thrill Me" Atkins...maybe because it's so cheesy...maybe because of the Screaming Like Banshees...maybe all of the above.

Awesome review RoG :)

CarpetGnome Oct 22nd, 2008 11:34 PM

I can't be the only one who noticed that "cryogenic boy" had no genitals.....

The slugs ate them perhaps?

Chuggernaught Oct 22nd, 2008 11:55 PM

Oh yes! I forgot all about this movie! JC should have lived to fight again another day. I remember thinking how much it sucked that he died so early in the movie.

DarkfireTaimatsu Oct 23rd, 2008 12:15 AM

Euw... It's like Yeerks gone bad. Or worse, rather.

Dungeonbrownies Oct 23rd, 2008 12:44 AM

I found this film online a couple of years ago and saw it.
It was undoubtedly one of the best films of this style Ive seen to date.

Terrible-D Oct 23rd, 2008 02:40 AM

I just read this on Wikipedia(so who knows if it's really true or not),"DVD producer Michael Felsher is currently working on the Night of the Creeps dvd."
I haven't seen this flick in ages, but I do remember it having the spaceship ending.

OxBlood Oct 23rd, 2008 06:56 AM

Another great classic that I have never seen...I am so uneducated. But I already bought Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter ;) Thanks for telling me such a nice little flick exists :)

Icculus Oct 23rd, 2008 12:57 PM

I caught this on On-Demand about a month or so ago. Good flick, Unfortunately I don't know what ending it had because I'm a sucker and fell asleep. I'll have to check it out though.

Zomboid Oct 23rd, 2008 05:58 PM

Seeing this tomorrow night on a theater screen. You can all lick my balls.

Mockery Oct 23rd, 2008 06:24 PM

Hey Zomboid:

You can lick mine first. :picklehat

Ferrit Oct 23rd, 2008 08:11 PM

lol pwned

but I saw it on the big screen when it came out....does that count?

Nick Oct 23rd, 2008 09:58 PM

Zomboid just got owned.

Kitsunexus Oct 24th, 2008 08:36 AM

Why this never came out on DVD is beyond me because this is the BEST HORROR MOVIE EVER. I love it so much. <3 <3 <3

TuxKamen Oct 24th, 2008 03:41 PM

I saw this movie when it came out on video ages and ages ago, when I was still in grade school. I remember going to bed that night and not having any problems, then waking up in the middle of the night when my mom was watching the old Starman TV series (she taped all the episodes). After I went back to sleep, had a nightmare about the zombie axe murderer.

The only ending I've ever seen was the dog one, never have had the pleasure of the UFO ending. From what I read, the studio wanted a jumper ending, so that's where the dog came from.

Zomboid Oct 24th, 2008 03:51 PM


I WILL lick your balls if ya want though.

RevengeVirus Oct 24th, 2008 06:32 PM

It's cool Zomboid, I like to make shit up, too

Zomboid Oct 24th, 2008 06:55 PM


Oh yeah, I forgot I'm posting in the -RoG- fan club section of the forums :lol :picklehat

I want to live in Deadmonton.

I actually liked Slither more than Night of the Creeps.

Tadao Oct 24th, 2008 09:49 PM

If only it wasn't a made up rouse to try to save face.

Riot.EXE Oct 25th, 2008 04:09 AM

My mom has this movie on tape...but the ending I saw was the dog one...I didn't even know there was a graveyard ending...damn...

Nibbins Oct 25th, 2008 10:22 AM

i have been praying for this movie to hit DVD for almost 8 years now, i never got ahold of it on VHS, and it was one of the first true horror movies i ever watched as a kid (that and C.H.U.D.) but if they would just release it on DVD already id be happy as hell.. it dont even gotta look fancy like monster squad does, just put it out already come on!... hope your review works RoG... if skywalker can blow up a deathstar im sure you can get a classic horror movie released on DVD!

Chuggernaught Oct 25th, 2008 11:16 AM

I checked with my local horror movie geeks (union # 124). They both said they've never seen the ufo/grave yard ending. Now they're all hot and bothered cause it was a factoid they didn't know about.
Good for you RoG, you've out horror movie nerded my horror movie nerds!

samuraikitten Oct 27th, 2008 01:37 AM

Weird, I've had this on DVD for a while.

MarioRPG Oct 29th, 2008 05:37 PM

I'm most pleased with this.

e: I've never seen the graveyard ending.

Beardy Goodness Nov 2nd, 2008 12:06 PM

Rog, have you seen "UNDEAD"? Cuz it also involves zombies, aliens, and a totally cool zombie-hunting farmer, who in my mind is totally among the ranks of Det. Cameron.

Nibbins Nov 11th, 2008 10:08 AM

samuraikitten, you probably got a knockoff/bootleg
im hoping that the official DVD has alot of extras!

toolz88 Nov 29th, 2008 07:48 PM

How cool is this movie ,I remember seeing this movie on HBO back in the eighties.But this movie I digress like you said has good scares great actors like Tom Atkins and awesome one liners definately deserves to be on DVD.

Nibbins Jul 12th, 2009 05:16 AM

im commenting almost a year later now to inform everyone that night of the creeps is INDEED coming to the DVD soon! check amazon.com you can even vote for which cover you think it should have. i voted for cover number 1, and it is winning at the moment. so RoG and all you other awesome guys need to go check it out ASAP

Nibbins Jul 12th, 2009 05:19 AM

http://www.amazon.com/Night-Creeps-J...-wl_item-added is the link, i forgot to include it.. sorry, that should help anyone who needs to look at it without having to search around on amazon for a non pirated copy

DrewP Jul 22nd, 2009 04:21 PM

I got a notice from Sony saying they are making a Director's Cut DVD and Blu-Ray version of this movie premiering and San Diego Comic-Con

Just Ami Sep 2nd, 2009 10:02 AM

I have always loved this movie and I was so happy to see it FINALLY come out on DVD!

DeathDealer1983 Nov 25th, 2009 03:42 PM

hey..this movie was at wal mart on dvd a week back.

sonicteam3000 Sep 24th, 2010 06:15 PM

lol tom atkins

Mr.Ghost Oct 12th, 2013 01:42 PM

Whenever I watched it on Syfy, it had the dog ending. But the movie channels had the cemetery, and I thought that ending was the better payoff. I just watched it last night, so mere words cannot describe how awesome this movie was. My brother and I were commenting on the 1980's horror cliches: such as the prettiest girl gets it first, the jerk boyfriend is always blonde and named Brad, and the cops always show up late.
