The good news is your date is here. The bad news is…he’s dead. Scream Factory have moved the release date of their highly anticipated release of the Night of the Creeps definitive collector’s edition Blu-ray. The film will now release on June 25th, 2019. It will be worth the wait as the release is jam-packed, with both theatrical and director’s cut versions of the film and new bonus features including interviews with cast and crew and an episode of Horrors’ Hallowed Grounds.
What’s it all about?
When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. Twenty-seven years later, his cryogenically frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges … and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures whose victims turn into zombies!
Director Fred Dekker’s thoroughly enjoyable throwback chiller deftly mixes all sorts of genres while simultaneously having fun with them (the college and all the leading characters are named after famous horror movie directors). This cult classic stars Jason Lively (European Vacation and The Dukes of Hazzard Series) and horror film legend Tom Atkins (The Fog, Creepshow, Halloween III, Escape from New York).
