Mary’s horror reviews are killin it. And Night of the Creeps is a really unique zombie movie for those looking for something new.
31 Days of Horror - Day 27: Night of the Creeps
I don’t know if Fred Dekker is in charge of the tag lines for his movies but they’re awesome. He’s the writer of my favorite horror movie starring George Wendt - House. It’s tag line “Ding Dong. You’re Dead.” is the reason I picked it up at Blockbuster in the first place. Although “Good news is your dates are here. Bad news is…they’re dead.” tops it. And as if that isn’t enough you have the added tag of “If you scream..you’re dead.”
Basically, if you do anything in a Fred Dekker movie you’re dead.
Night of the Creeps feels like 3 different Tales from the Crypt episodes in one. It starts with aliens on a space ship, moves to a 50s b-movie and winds up at an 80s zombie slasher film. It was probably the most fun I’ve had watching a movie since I was a kid.
I have no idea what happened to Monster Squad (another film written and directed by Fred Dekker) but this movie holds up.

31 Days of Horror - Day 8: Re-Animator
This movie’s poster was so ubiquitous on the shirts of boys in high school that I never bothered seeing it out of spite. Not because I wouldn’t like it but as a teen if something appeared more than 3 times on a shirt I wasn’t into it. That goes equally for Tommy Hilfiger and American Eagle as it does for Re-Animator and Rob Zombie. THAT’S HOW PUNK ROCK I WAS.
Needless to say I didn’t have a lot of fun because I missed out on things like seeing this film which was super fun. i saw it on a 100 inch screen in my friends apartment so I found myself having to look away at parts. The make-up effects are awesome and I am very pro creature but I’ve never been able to handle mush and bright red blood which this movie has tons of. It’s also got full-frontal dicks! But I made sure to see those.
Ugh I knew I would like this. You were right boys in high school. It was really funny and gory and goofy and gross. But I’ll still probably never wear a t-shirt of it. Punk rock for life!
