In 2008, Netflix debuted the option for a fraction of their movie and TV show library to be streamed instantly into homes, effectively revolutionizing the ways in which we consume media. A decade later, there are dozens of streaming services that offer on-demand entertainment, which includes content crafted exclusively for respective services. One service, Shudder, even specializes in genre cinema, delivering audiences hundreds of horror titles to stream instantly. Despite this trend towards streaming services, some fans still prefer physical releases, as these collections often include special features that aren't available online. Distributor Scream Factory has revealed the impressive details of an upcoming home video release of Night of the Creeps, which hits shelves on May 28th.
Thrill me! When an alien experiment goes awry, it crashes to Earth in 1959 and infects a young college student. Twenty-seven years later, his cryogenically frozen body is thawed out by fraternity pledges ... and the campus is quickly overrun by alien creatures whose victims turn into zombies! Fred Dekker's thoroughly enjoyable throwback chiller deftly mixes all sorts of genres while simultaneously having fun with them (the college and all the leading characters are named after famous horror movie directors).
