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
The heads of all of the infected zombies split open when the eggs in their brains mature into slugs and they spit them out. But the dog repeatedly spits out slugs and never dies after the incubation period. See more »
Originally filmed with an ending in which Ray Cameron walks out of the house as a zombie, then collapses in front of a cemetery as the slug-like creatures escape from his body and head toward the graves; the alien spacecraft from the opening scene then arrives and begins to search the graveyard with spotlights. For the original theatrical and home video releases this was replaced with a briefer ending in which a slug-creature jumps out of the zombie-dog's mouth as the characters watch the sorority house burn down. The version with the original ending was used for some TV airings and later released as the Director's Cut (which includes the re-shot ending as a separate bonus feature). See more »
This movie is so super cool. I love this movie. Even though the stars are like second - billing , this movie is still like no other - its original all in it's own right. Had to be a drive - in film from the looks of the release date. Wish I seen it there! If you have a slug in you , on you or around you - to say the least - you're totally bumming. 80s comedy - horror at its best. Makes you laugh and scares you into jumping out of your seat. Spooky. Funny and different make this a favorite of mine...and maybe yours! I rate this 9 / 10
