Night of the Creeps: WTF Happened to This Horror Movie?

Detective Cameron: I got good news and bad news, girls. The good news is your dates are here. Sorority Sister: What’s the bad news? Detective Cameron: They’re dead.

Written and directed by Fred Dekker, Night of the Creeps has the following synopsis: Humor mixes with horror in this chiller about a college campus being ravaged by gruesome creatures that turn their victims into zombies. The night of the formal is finally here for Chris, Cindy, and J.C. It’s going to be the best night of their lives. But, tonight is also the NIGHT OF THE CREEPS. From a world unknown comes a nightmare unimagined. First, they are under you, around you, inside of you, then, you’re dead. Zombies, exploding heads, creepy crawlies, they are a new breed of terror; a different kind of horror. The Creeps are taking over. You never had a night like this!
