In 1959, an alien experiment crashes to earth and infects a fraternity member. They freeze the body, but in the modern day, two geeks pledging a fraternity accidentally thaw the corpse, which proceeds to infect the campus with parasites that transform their hosts into killer zombies. Written by
Chris and J.C. are to college geeks. They are always the brunt of the jokes and always ready to give back a quick tongue lashing. When Chris takes a shine to one of the sorority girls both Chris and J.C. have to perform a hazing prank so they can join the fraternity and win his fair maiden. The boys are sent to the campus morgue to get a body but through a series of fowl ups reanimate a cryogenically frozen body that has an alien parasite residing in its body. It seems these parasites enter your mouth and take over your body whether you're dead or alive. Hilarity ensues as Chris and a police detective attempt to save the campus then the world.
Night of the Creeps is one seriously fun film. A mixture of1950's sci-fi films mixed with some zombie action and a lot of humor. Night of the Creeps is a gem that needs to be revived in the DVD age. Tom Atkins is the highlight as the foul-mouthed and sarcastic detective that accompanies Chris during the debacle.
