I was wondering if anyone saw this on the Sci-Fi Channel, last Friday or Saturday. Pretty funny movie.  The lead was Rusty from National Lampoons European Vacation, and it also starred Bubba from Mama's Family as "The Bradster".  The movie was carried by Tom Atkins though, as the hard ass detective.  The best part was when some kid was in a toilet stall and some of the graffiti read "Stryper Rules" lol.

As far as I'm concerned, Night of the Creeps is the ultimate B-movie, and when the great ultraterrestrial council sits in judgment on the planet Earth, it will be the fact that NotC is long out-of-print that will tip the scales and condemn us to stellar dissolution.

I'm going to feel like Slim Pickens in "Blazing Saddles" if I follow Nathan's post with a simple "Ditto!"

I caught a few minutes of NotC on Sci-Fi, but kept flipping channels because I'm lucky enough to own a VHS copy of the movie.  My question is, which version did they show?  There are two different endings, and did they show the dog ending, or the superior ending with Tom Atkins?

My favorite type of film within the horror/B movie genre is the zombie film. 100 or so films I own are all zombie movies that I  have collected (most I have to get from copies because they aren't available in the US)

I was really excited about seeing night of the creeps one Saturday afternoon when it was coming on the sci-fi channel. I had some good memories of it because I remembered watching it in the late 80s. I taped it, watched it and was a little dissapointed. My favorite scene is when the zombie smashes through the floorboards. Maybe I expected too much after seeing another low budget zombie film called "The Video Dead" WHich was actually good. I was hunting both of these films down last Summer. Just my take on it

I reviewed the movie not so long ago. Check out my thoughts at:

Man this film is terrific!
I also caught it on Sci-Fi at like 10 the other night.  I've been dying to see it, and was elated when I finally got a chance.  

I'm currently waiting for an auction on Ebay to close.  I'm bidding on Demons and this film for 15.00  :o)
Not too bad.

The ending shown on Sci-Fi was the ending with the detective walking down the street, falling down, his head cracking open, and the slug things take off into the graveyard.  The alien ship then appears and tries to find them.

Can't believe that this film has gone as unnoticed as it has.  It's a great film.  The best B-Movie I've seen in a LOOONG time.

I'd say something about "amateurs" except Greywizard could hardly be called one of those.

The Video Dead was good?  I'm glad there's someone around to tell me these things -- otherwise, I might have gone with my initial opinion, that it was schlop.
