Night of the Creeps (1986)

nightofthecreepsAn alien canister crash lands in the 50s and releases a zombie virus. The first infected person is put on ice only to be thawed 30 years later by some punk kids trying to steal a cadaver for a frat pledge prank. 80s TEEN COMEDY HORROR TIME!!!!!!!!

It’s mostly slow going as the infection starts to spread in the form of fast-moving slug creatures (here we go again) and create more alien zombies. As the action ramps up, the only hope for saving the sorority girls is the idiot pledges who brought about the zombie apocalypse in the first place. Our heroes! One is played by Rusty from European Vacation and the other gets killed on the crapper.

Zombie cat was awesome. The one-liners are awesome. The death by lawnmower is always fun. I also really enjoyed the shotgun to the head followed by flamethrower scorcher double-tap.

If this had been what Slugs was like, it might have been good. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it also doesn’t treat the viewer like a dumbass. If anything, my complaint is that the movie is over too quickly.
