Creepozoids? The only creep in this movie is the writer

1/10
Author: lordzedd-3 from United States
1 September 2007

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

First, I don't recall them saying how much time has past since the nuclear war. Second, after the nukes fly that would be it, no more. Everyone knows that a nuclear war will start and end in a matter of minutes. There would be per longed battles or front lines to desert from. So the idea of deserters from the front line of a nuclear war doesn't make any kind of sense no matter how you slice it. I mean, even "The Day After" got that right. Next, the atmosphere was like nothing, we saw no devastated buildings, no destroyed cites, not even stock-footage of a nuclear bomb test. So we nothing of the world they lived in. What was the point of creating an animal that don't need to eat, how will that help mankind even if they got the bloody thing to work? So, what was the point? All of this and to make matters even worse the characters were as likable and as interesting as dried unbuttered toast. I don't blame the cast, they did the best they could with what they had, I put the blame on this on the director and the writer which happen to be the same creep David DeCoteau. Do some freakin' research next time, jerk. I give this train wreck of a movie THE NOOSE!

Trashy Alien rip-off

4/10
Author: Tikkin from United Kingdom
31 January 2007

There's not a lot you can say about Creepozoids, it's really just a rip-off of Alien with an extremely trashy feel. The lighting is poor and the pace is a little slow. However there's some mildly amusing scenes scattered throughout, mostly towards the end when you get to see the monster and the "baby". The monster effects are actually quite decent considering the obvious low budget. I laughed a few times, especially when the guy throws the baby off himself, and also when the monster is apparently holding him up in the air - it's obvious that he's attached to a harness from the ceiling. There's also a few funny scenes involving giant "rats" that look like puppets. Oh, and one of the girls bares her breasts.

Creepozoids isn't a total waste of time, but it's not something you'll want to go out of your way to find either.

Linnea Quigley in a post-apocalyptic rehash

Author: silentgpaleo
2 May 2000

I remember seeing this film some years back. CREEPOZOIDS features some horrendous acting, and some obviously cable-controlled monsters. I also recall the shower scene with Quigley, which although gratuitous, is a welcome break from boredom.

It seems Dave DeCoteau thought he was making a tightly-wound sci-fi thriller. But the pace is so languid that any sense of suspense is lost within the first few minutes. We are just waiting for the cast to get devoured. And its a long wait.

CREEPOZOIDS is the kind of film that is "so-bad-that-you-never-want-to-watch-it-again". And, needless to say, I haven't. Unless you are a Quigley fan, avoid this bit of cheap pond scum.

a horror to watch except for...

4/10
Author: trashgang from Midian

A name that rings a bell for so many reasons, Creepozoids. It's remembered for the wrong reasons. It's slow and boring. Jesse mutating but in a cheesy way, in fact, only lenses were used for the eyes and some rubber glove. But the most famous thing or should I say things are the boobs from Linnea Quigley.

After a nuke attack, not shown, survivors are searching for shelter to hide from the acid rain. The ran into an abandoned government research facility. Of course the experiments done left some kind of creature alive in the facility. It's from there that the horror comes in. But it comes in the wrong way. You really have to wait a long time before the mutated comes in and the survivors are under attack. First attack is some kind of giant rat but have a look, it looked stupid and it even didn't move. The second attack was the creature itself, pure rubber. Maybe the last 10 minutes are worth watching with the baby but still. No, this isn't good, no suspense, no red stuff, a real horror to watch except for...

Creepozoids on the loose.

7/10
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland
14 January 2012

Post-apocalyptic year 1998.Five army deserters take shelter from acid rain in an abandoned research facility.Among them are Linnea Quigley and Ashlyn Gere.They don't know that inside the building lurks monster-a hideous creepozoid with an urge to kill.There are also mutated rats on the loose plus mutated baby in the vein of "It's Alive".The acting of entire cast is pretty bad,the special effects are mostly amateurish and the direction by David DeCoteau is uninspired.Especially mutated rats look laughable.Still "Creepozoids" is gloriously cheesy with its campy premise and fantastic Linnea Quigley's nude shower scene.If you like low-budget sci-fi horror fare with plenty of bile give this trashy extravaganza a look.7 creepozoids out of 10.

B movie cheese at it's finest, a fun time!

Author: Prolox from Canada
24 August 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In this low budget & almost forgotten sci-fi horror flick, a group of military deserters stumble upon an empty science lab in 1998, when World War III is going on & rain is dangerous. Inside the building is food & shelter & something else they didn't know about, rubbery, flesh craving giant rat monsters & a large rubber alien monster that looks like a cousin to the ALIEN acid spitters & when they get picked off one by one, the remaining survivors must find a way to eliminate the seemingly indestructible mutant, or wind up as victims. CREEPOZOIDS is a fun & at times, funny B movie, directed with some flare by first time helmer David Decoteau. The atmosphere & sets are really cheap & the acting is at best on the level with some adult films, but still it's a fun, cheesy movie, that reminded me a lot of those really bad cheap Italian apocalypse horror films they used to make during the seventies & eighties. The special effects are pretty decent though, particularly when the victims of the monster attack start to turn into monsters themselves & sometimes hit a body melt. Produced by Charles Band, but I have to ask a question, why is it in all of Charles futuristic set films, coffee is almost extinct & the amount that is left costs a fortune? this mention of coffee being rare & extremely expensive was also talked about in TRANCERS & PARASITE? Strictly for bad B movie lovers.

Oh no! It's a DeCoteau!

4/10
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England
13 October 2009

Set in the post-apocalyptic near future of 1998 (this is an 80s flick, remember), Creepozoids sees a group of army deserters breaking into a heavily fortified building (well, the door was locked, anyway) in order to shelter from an acid-rain storm. This turns out to be a bad idea, for the place not only turns out to be home to giant killer rats, but also a biological experiment gone wrong: a virus designed to replace amino acids causes the soldiers to mutate and die if they eat, but worse still, there's a six foot rubber monster on the loose and it ain't very friendly.

Directed by B-movie hack David DeCoteau, and starring Linnea Quigley, the quintessential 80s scream queen (plus a pre-hardcore Ashlyn Gere, here credited as Kim McKamy), this film is a very cheap and very trashy Alien rip-off that manages to be vaguely entertaining thanks to its sheer awfulness: marvel at Quigley's nipple enhancing vest and her uncanny ability to locate a working shower, even in an end-of-the-world scenario; be totally surprised when Gere DOESN'T remove her top; spot the major goof as one character reads a computer journal out loud, but his words fail to match those displayed on the screen; laugh as the cast wrestle with unconvincing, over-sized stuffed rodents; be amazed as DeCoteau foolishly attempts to recreate Ridley Scott's shocking mess-room scene from Alien; and wonder WTF is going on as a mutant baby erupts from the creature and proceeds to attack the sole survivor.

Creepozoids

3/10
Author: Scarecrow-88 from United States
12 August 2009

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Zero budget creature feature from director David DeCoteau about a small band of soldiers, deserting a war that is sweeping across the world concerning nuclear activity that has left many dead or dying, along with serious acid rain and general misery due to a lack of human necessities(..such as food and clean water), finding an underground research bunker housing a slimy monster which could be an actual human whose physiology has reacted negatively to a genetic experiment concerning amino acids(..which work to make humans self sufficient nutritionally, not having to depend on food to live).

Laughable effects plague this little sci-fi monster movie, including a large puppet rat and this sharp-teethed killer baby fetus(..both which go right for the jugular) which births itself from it's giant creature mother! The grisly effects of what happens to humans who unfortunately ingest the black oily substance(..a type of blood, I assume) contained within the monster highlight the gory specialties of the filmmakers involved, more impressive than the creature itself which is essentially another rubber-suited stuntman. The monster suit looks like a giant bug or something with fangs and crab-like claws which open and shut when the fiend extends it's mouth. The film is pretty much over at the 60 minute mark but DeCoteau and company decide to bring out the damned fetus, with no turning back. Linnea Quigley gets star treatment in CREEPOZOIDS, headlining the cast..and not fifteen minutes in, she's baring those wonderful tits and that fantastic body in a shower sequence with her buff lover, Butch(Ken Abraham). Richard L Hawkins(..who is really the star, to tell the truth) is the leader, Jake, who has to contend with both the giant monster and it's baby at the end. Michael Aranda is rewarded the show-stopping "ALIEN John Hurt dinner death" sequence, as the team's computer geek, Jesse, whose body reacts destructively to food(..he encountered the monster who forced that black blood inside of him). Ashlyn Gere is Kate, the other tough broad on the team who is in love with Jake and suffers an ugly facial reaction after the mutant rat tears into her throat, causing her to violently attack Quigley's Bianca. The make-up effects are okay, hideous and icky reactions to the physiological attacks from within, but this is a case where budgetary restrictions doomed the filmmakers.

"Move over Aliens, here come the Creepozoids."

Author: Backlash007 from Kentucky
30 September 2007

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

~Spoiler~

David DeCoteau used to make good bad movies, unlike today. Movies like Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama were great cheesefests of the 80's. Creepozoids is one of his good bad movies; it's cheap, fun, and schlocky. It's a terrible film with a group of five actors running up and down the same corridor and not really doing that much. But there is something charming about it that I'm going to chalk up to nostalgia. But it could be the Linnea Quigley shower scene. The storyline involves a group of AWOL soldiers trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Acid rain is about to pour down on them which forces them to take shelter in an abandoned scientific warehouse. Before you can say "Alien", some sort of amino acid creature stalks the cast for the duration of the movie. Linnea Quigley is the only name you might recognize here. The rest of the cast does fine in a movie that is what it is. For a neat post-apocalyptic, people-trapped-in-a-warehouse double feature, watch Rats: Night of Terror. That is, if you like bad movies.
