Big hair, flame thrower totting heroines, bathing sorority girls, dickish frat boys, the hard-boiled detective with the heart of gold, and the vindicated geek protagonists are the kind of tropes you enjoy in a 80s B horror-comedy film. Yet the movie, Night of the Creeps lacked the fun factor for me as it did for many in the horror community. All the elements mixed like oil and water for this 89 minute picture about aliens, parasites, and zombies, with an undead slasher thrown in. I guess the film was just not for me as it was for one of my closer friends. And what’s up with the intro?
