Night of the Creeps (1986)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
02.14.13

Night of the Creeps (1986) In the 1950's a college-aged couple is parked in their convertible down a secluded road. A meteor crashes nearby and the guy goes to investigate, only to have an eel-like creature jump into his mouth. Then, we go to the waiting girlfriend, who is in trouble.

An ax murderer escaped from the mental institution and chops her up.Then, the movie skips thirty years, to the present day college campus. Two friends, Chris (Jason Lively) and J.C. are trying to fit in and get girls. J.C. is crippled and lives vicariously through his best friend, even introducing him to a girl, Cynthia (Jill Whitlow), he's clearly interested in. The two friends decide to pledge a fraternity and are sent to steal a body from a science lab. This body turns out to be the guy we saw at the beginning, who had he alien jump into his mouth. The guy/zombie comes back to life and freaks the two kids off, only to contaminate a lab assistant . The zombie's head explodes and dozens of the creatures scurry off, to infect others. This all culminates when a fraternity is killed in a bus crash and they are all reanimated and attack a sorority. J.C is killed, though not before he formulates a plan to kill the aliens, and Chris wins over Cynthia. There's also Detective Ray Cameron (Tom Atkins of The Fog, Halloween 3), whose past haunts him. It was his girlfriend who was slaughtered at the beginning of the movie--and he had shot and killed the ax murderer. This character also utters the best line from the movie, when he and the others are barricaded in a sorority house--"I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that your dates are here. The bad news is that they're dead!"

Night of the Creeps is an entertaining movie, though on re-watching it there's an awful lot of unlikely coincidences. And the special makeup effects, compared to today, are a bit lacking. I can see this being remade with a decent budget and effects.
