Night of the Creeps

“The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is … they’re dead!”

A giddy mix of alien invasion, zombie attack, and college hijinks movies, based on a script Fred Dekker whacked out in a week’s time, this remains a highpoint of ’80s cinema.

It was a decade which gave us high-minded films about folks like Gandhi and Miss Daisy.

But, for my money, nothing beats watching a plucky band of nerds squaring off with killer outer space slugs.

Armed with flamethrowers and good old-fashioned moxie, they’re our last hope.

God bless these unsung American patriots, one and all.
