The good news is, your dates are here.
Today’s retrospective is for the 1986 horror “Night of the Creeps“. Starring Jason Lively as the plucky hero, with a secondary role for the great Tom Atkins as the grizzled police detective with a painful secret in his past.
This movie is one of those great quotable gems with all kinds of memorable ideas, iconic scenes, and comedic relief moments.
“Thrill me” indeed. You can’t beat a movie that has a sorority girl in a prom dress with a flamethrower. That never gets old.
If you would like to see something similar on TV, I highly recommend the TV show “Braindead”. It’s a political drama that goes off the rails in the best way.
