Night of the Creeps

(1986) ***1/2

An alien experiment gone awry in the 1950s is about to affect the lives of 2 college students in the 1980s.  How, you may ask? Well, it will be quicker for you to watch the movie than for me to explain it.  

Yes, it's been reviewed on the blog, but somehow it never caught my attention, and so glad to have remedied the omission!  This perfect 80s B-movie spoof-homage has everything: humor, gore, stereotypical frat boys and sorority girls, aliens, zombies, slugs, and an embittered older cop... Great stuff.  Often I have difficulty deciding star ratings, but this one virtually screams 3.5 star movie, way better than just good enough, but still miles from excellent.  And if you lived through the 80s, it's a must-see.

It's a must-see I haven't seen! Ever! I may have to squeeze this one in.

That gif is hilarious. I especially love the preppie college student back there who's got to be pushing 35.
