Night of the Creeps - Provided by Kevin Spencer at

In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we’ve got good news and bad news… the good news is… we’re talking Night of the Creeps (1986)!

The bad news is… well, unless you’ve got an alien-brain slug doing the undulating dance of the undead between your ears, there is no bad news!

Director: Fred Dekker

Starring: Tom Atkins, Jason Lively, Steve Marshal, and Cynthia Whitlow.

Synopsis: After crash-landing on earth in the 1950s, a slug-like alien parasite infects a college student. Then, 27 years later, the student (now a zombie), is unfrozen while college friends Chris and J.C. are trying to pledge a fraternity. Little do they know, however, that they’ve unleashed the “creeps”. Now, the aliens are entering the brains of unsuspecting victims and turning them into zombies.

Join us next week for the last entry in the 2011 OCTOBER SPOOKY FLIX FEST! We’ll be wrapping things up with the classic Halloween (1978)! That’s right, we’ll discuss the original Halloween and some of its sequels with guest host Darryl Taylor of The Taylor Network.

We’ll be releasing this episode earlier than normal. Instead of the usual Wednesday release, since All Hallow’s Eve lands on a Monday, well, that’s when you’ll get this episode. Consider it our Halloween treat to you!
