Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #29: Night of the Creeps (1986)

Something in this movie makes me angry. Characters and places are named after directors like: James Cameron, John Carpenter, Roger Corman, David Cronenberg, Tobe Hooper, John Landis, Steve Miner, Sam Raimi and George A. Romero.

No, it’s not the namedropping itself (otherwise I wouldn’t have just done it myself). It’s the fact that all these directors were hot shit in this genre in 1986 and we haven’t had a single new name to add to the list since then!

Plot: Alien slugs ruin a college party.

This is the second film by Fred Dekker in this list (the first one being #71: Monster Squad) and I’m sure there will be room for a third! I mean he also directed RoboCop! Oh… it was RoboCop 3. No, he will not make the list again. But I wish he would make more films! Yeah, that’s how good he is: I forgive him for RoboCop 3.

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